Beer Calendar: Chocolate Beers, a Rumpus and New Cerebral Cans – Westword

Oskar Blues has set a date in late November for the opening of its third new Colorado location — this one is the two-story former Croc’s space at 1630 Market Street in LoDo. The 10,636 square-foot Oskar Blues Grill & Brew will offer traditional restaurant and bar service upstairs, along with the brewery’s full lineup of beers. Downstairs, meanwhile, there will be a 5,500-square-foot music venue called Black Buzzard; patrons can expect a lineup of local and national Americana, bluegrass, rock, blues, reggae and folk musicians.

The brewery signed a ten-year lease on the space and plans to hire 120 people there. “We’ve been working diligently over the past twenty years to evolve and perfect our concept – and now we’re ready to bring the Grill and Brew’s signature blend of Southern-inspired Creole & Cajun dishes and entertainment to Denver,” says Jason Rogers of Oskar Blues Fooderies. “It mirrors the Lyons and Colorado Springs locations, while adding a signature Denver flair. We wanted to deliver something special that LoDo could call its own.”

Platt Park Brewing taps a collaboration Kaladi Coffee Brothers as part of its 11th Tap Project. The beers is Platt Park’s Vanilla Cream Ale with dark roast coffee extract. “It’s sweet, creamy and has a bitter pop to it,” the brewery notes.
