Another round of Wynkoop stories

Adman Lew Cady sent in the following memory of the early days of the Wynkoop Brewing Co.:

The night Rock Bottom opened, John Hickenlooper and I (and you) were there and I asked Hickenlooper what he was going to do now that there was a second brewpub in town.

"Crush 'em like a little bug," he said, demonstrating the technique with the thumb on one hand and the palm of the other.

Today there are Rock Bottoms all over the place, from San Diego to Boston.
