First Look: The Rackhouse Pub Is Now Pouring on Blake Street

The Rackhouse Pub re-opened on Saturday, December 12, after a nearly two-year absence. The original Rackhouse shared a warehouse space with Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey on South Kalamath Street; the new restaurant and bar at 2875 Blake Street will also serve as the taproom for C Squared Ciders and Bierstadt Lagerhaus (which will begin brewing in early 2016).

The Rackhouse is open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight, serving a beer-focused menu with German touches from chef Brandon Muncy. For even more photos, see our complete slideshow.
