Someone succeeded in turning an old pub near downtown Colorado Springs into a trendy open bar scene. A friend took me there -- he knows everyone in town, apparently -- and we enjoyed some local brew and an amazing congregational architecture. This place would be first-class for a date.
While we sat there, they were bringing in new large tables to create a more communal atmo. Inviting and trendy, this place was just cool. The beer was high quality but, that day, they didn't have any full amber selections, which is my beer. They apparently never brew the same beer twice, so there's always something new behind the bar, and they recently had added a taco bar-esque setup.
