Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew, one of Westword's picks for the top 10 hippest bars in Denver, celebrated its first year in business last weekend by tapping several new beers and welcoming in live music, food trucks and plenty of loyal customers. Westword photographer Brandon Marshall captured the revelry. See all of his photos in his full Our Mutual Friend celebrates its one-year anniversary slide show.
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.
