West Flanders Brewery opened its doors over the weekend at 1125 Pearl Street in Boulder, in the former home of BJ'S Restaurant & Brewhouse (which has relocated to 1690 28th Street in Boulder). The brewpub is one of several new breweries tapping into that town, including J Wells, Wild Woods and Fate Brewing.
Westword's Elyse Mitchell brings back these photos of opening night at Pearl Street's latest beer-centric tenant:
West Flanders currently has six of its beers on tap: an IPA, a tripel, St. Mark's Dubbel, The Angry Monk (Belgian-style ale), Canniption pale ale and a yet-to-be-named ESB (the pub will award a free keg to whoever submits the best name for it). The brewpub is open daily from 11 to 1 a.m.; check the website or call 303-447-2739 for updates.
