Stomp Them Grapes moving north

Stomp Them Grapes, central Denver's only brew-at-home beer-and- wine store, is moving this week from 2563 15th Street to 4731 Lipan Street, near I-70. But the added driving distance will pay off in added inventory.

"We've outgrown the space. We're going from a miserable 860 square feet to 4,800 square feet," says Wally, a store employee. "It's a big jump. That's half the size of a Walgreen's."

The new location -- which used to house a Barack Obama bumpersticker-making operation -- will include a homebrewing classroom, more space for bulk items and a huge increase in beer- and wine-making supplies and ingredients.
