Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Boulder Draft House, the Boulder restaurant at 2027 13th Street (right off Pearl Street) that was home to the Colorado Brewing Company, has closed.

On Friday, the proprietors sent out this tweet: "To all Draft House fans: yes, its official, we have closed. Thank you all for 2 great years and many friendships!"

Boulder Draft House had taken over the space that was once home to Redfish; it's adjacent to the still-for-lease spot where the b side Lounge used to be.

The place has a "full mailbox" voice-mail message, bags over the windows -- and no note on the door to explain the surprise closing. There's also no word on whether the Colorado Brewing Company will try to relocate. According to its website, the brewery won a silver medal at the 2009 Great American Beer Festival.
