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

You know you're in Denver during the National Western Stock Show when you sit down for tea at the Brown Palace Hotel and your luncheon companions include two fluffy steers. Honoring the grand champion steer is an annual tradition at the downtown hotel; this year's winner was Fu, raised by Lillie Skiles of Stratford, Texas. Reserve grand champion BFF, raised by Mikala Grady of Grandview, Texas, also got to experience the posh life at the Brown. We just hope nobody broke out the A-1 Sauce.

For more photos of the cutest beef-on-the-hoof in town, see our complete Brown Palace Grand Champion Steer Tea slideshow.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
