Westbound & Down Brewing opens pop-up taproom in downtown Denver

Denverites now have a new bar where they can find Westbound & Down Brewing Co.’s beers on tap and in cans to-go without ever leaving the city limits.

The brewery, which boasts locations in Idaho Springs and Lafayette, recently opened a pop-up taproom in the Free Market (1801 Blake St.) at the Dairy Block near Union Station. The quaint space features a counter where drinkers can walk up and order a beer to enjoy at patio tables set up in the alley or seating inside Free Market.

Eric Schmidt, Westbound & Down spokesperson, said the brewery was invited for a residency in the space by BRUTØ restaurant, which operates in the same building but in a separate area. The taproom debuted Thursday, just in time for Stanley Cup parade revelry.

“We will be there for the remainder of 2022 with hopes and intention to make it a permanent location in 2023,” he said.
