"I always felt the big liquor stores offered an overwhelming amount of options," says Mark Westmoreland. "I wandered aisle after aisle just to find a decent red that would go with dinner." And with that in mind, Westmoreland opened Cask and Craft in LoHi last month. The store's mission is to combine the selection of a wine and beer shop with the atmosphere of a wine bar, he says, and to that end it features a constantly rotating, curated menu of wine and beer options. Beer is sold by the bottle to encourage experimentation across the shop's "easy drinking," "adventurous" and "expert" categories -- and there are free tastings from 3 to 7 p.m. Fridays and 2 to 7 p.m. Saturdays.

We sent photographer Danielle Lirette to Cask and Craft to capture her own taste of Cask and Craft; drink up the atmosphere in the photos that follow.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
