Earlier this year, the Big Red F took possession of the space that had been Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place since 2011. After a quick turn-around to rebrand and redecorate, the Post will begin serving an expanded menu and the Post's craft beers. The building has a long history of brewing: Query points out that six other operations have brewed here, dating back to 1996. "Eight GABF gold medals have been won by brewers on this system," he points out. Those include Oskar Blues, Redfish and Shine.
The new version of the Post will serve all of the company's standard lineup on tap, and Tedeschi is adding a new one: a hoppy red lager called Ski Tan. And like the original Post in Lafayette, this one will have a full bar for those looking beyond beer.
On the food side, expect the same great fried chicken and accompaniments, along with a longer list of sandwiches and salads and new blue-plate specials like prime rib and lamb-shank pot pie from Brett Smith, who's the chef over the Post brand.
This is the fourth Post location in the lineup, including the Post Chicken & Beer outposts in Longmont and Denver's Rosedale neighborhood. Shine, owned by sisters Jill, Jessica and Jennifer Emich, is expected to reopen at 2480 Canyon Boulevard (without a brewery) later this fall.
The Post Brewing Company will be open for dinner nightly from 4 p.m., with brunch served Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
