Reader: Beer and pizza is what Denver is turning into...sad

Denver has New Haven-style pizza, New York-style pizza, Chicago-style pizza, California-style pizza and now St. Louis-style pizza. And if you're willing to go to Telluride, you can even get Detroit-style pizza. But isn't there more to this dining scene than pizza? And imported pizza at that?

Says John Paul Rojas:

Beer and pizza is what this town is turning into. Sad. College kids must be happy. What about us grownups? What's the next trend? Microwave dinners.
Yes, Denver has more on its plate than pizza -- but does this city's booming craft-beer industry make you sad? Or glad? What trend would you like to see hit town?
