Denver Beer Co. is slated to break ground on its fourth taproom in April with an opening planned for later this year. Located within the Exchange at Boulevard One development in Denver’s Lowry neighborhood, it will include a brewery, taproom, an outdoor patio and garden, as well as an in-house restaurant concept.
The 4,200-square-foot taproom and brewhouse, plus 5,400-square-foot patio, will connect to an open space and park area within the development. Denver Beer Co. will install a 7-bbl brewing system from DME and brew fresh, location-specific brews on-premises, as well as existing Denver Beer Co. recipes. The taproom will have the capacity to hold 125 guests in the interior space as well as an additional 360 guests on two outdoor patio areas.
The Lowry Denver Beer Co. location will feature counter-service food, from an in-house restaurant, with a menu featuring elevated humble foods, chicken wings, kid-friendly fare and vegetarian options. In addition, the new space will feature fire pits, patio heaters and misters, bike parking, and outdoor game spaces. Denver Beer Co.’s Lowry taproom will be built with a focus on sustainability too. Note the solar panels, EV charging stations and dedicated bike parking in the rendering below.
“This fourth taproom will be really special due to its location on the park within the Exchange at Boulevard One,” shared Patrick Crawford, co-founder of Denver Beer Co. “Folks will be able to grab a beer and bite to eat and sit on the patio overlooking the green space. You’ll be able to toss a frisbee around in between beers or let your kids run and play while you hang out on the patio. Ever since traveling to Germany, I’ve always dreamt of having a taproom adjacent to open space where you can sip beers in between yard games. I think this location will have a great dynamic in that regard.”
Denver Beer Co. has selected Gensler as the architect to design the space and i2 Construction to manage construction. Denver Beer Co. estimates the new brewery will create 30 jobs, including a brewer, bartending staff and food service staff.
Confluent Development and Kelmore Development serve as co-owners and co-developers for the Exchange at Boulevard One. The Exchange at Boulevard One project is the only commercial development at Boulevard One, the mixed-use community which will include retail, apartments, single-family homes and public spaces in Lowry’s newest neighborhood, serving 25,000 residents in 15,000 households.
