Left Hand Brewing Company to Open Taphouse in RiNo
Left Hand Brewing Company announced today it will open a 7,500-square-foot taphouse next-door to Mission Ballroom in early 2022. The new venue will be part of Westfield Company’s North Wynkoop development, a 14-acre mixed use project at the north end of Brighton Boulevard.
“We’ve been eager to open an outpost in Denver, and it’s no secret we’ve been searching for the right location for some time,” said Eric Wallace, president and co-founder of Left Hand Brewing. “After being introduced to the Westfield team, we were inspired by their long-term vision for North Wynkoop and the creative, culinary and entertainment community they’re building in River North. We’re excited to help bring that vision to life as we have in Longmont through our brewery and tap room for the past 27 years.”
Left Hand’s new venue will feature its year-round and seasonal beers, a full dining menu with pre- and post-show favorites, live music and a stage, an outdoor patio, and private dining and event spaces.
North Wynkoop is being delivered in phases. The first phase included Mission Ballroom, a 4,000 person music/entertainment venue, a 240 car garage, and a 90,000 square foot office/retail building. The second phase will include a hotel, residential, additional office and retail.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Left Hand Brewing to the community of entertainment destinations within our North Wynkoop project. Our shared enthusiasm for creating exciting gathering places made this an ideal partnership,” said Kevin McClintock, senior partner for Westfield. “Left Hand is a pioneer in the craft brewing industry, so it’s no surprise that they’re also a pioneer at North Wynkoop. We expect they’ll soon be joined by other like-minded restaurants, bars and entertainment concepts as North Wynkoop continues to evolve into a premier entertainment destination in Colorado.”
North Wynkoop encompasses three city blocks from 40th to 43rd streets along Brighton Boulevard, is a five-minute walk to the 38th and Blake A Line Station (one train stop to Union Station and 30 minutes to Denver International Airport). In addition to its incredible access to rail, parking options for the site will include an underground garage as well as nearby parking options. Left Hand’s new location will offer a shared-ride pick-up and drop-off area and an abundance of bike parking.
