Kokopelli Beer Company in Westminster held its grand opening last Friday with six of its own beers on draft, including a milk stout, an IPA, an American pale and an English pale, along with a couple ciders and a sour from other brewers. The new brewpub, owned by Christine Wares, was also serving Austrian pretzels, appetizers and pizzas.
Westword photographer Danielle Lirette was on hand. See all of her photos in our full Kokopelli Beer Company grand opening slide show.
