Colorado’s beloved beer brand, Coors, is hopping on the trendy CBD beverage train

The brand that brought brews like Blue Moon and Miller Lite is now gettin’ onboard the CBD train to America. In January, Molson Coors announced that they would be releasing their CBD-infused beverage line in the United States, according to Westword, and Coloradoans have reason to be excited.

Verywell, a line of...

A socially distanced brunch at Hermosa Grill Cafe

There’s almost nothing better than sitting down for a good Sunday brunch with friends. Catching up over a meal full of carbs, fats, and booze is exactly what I need to help close out the weekend.

That love of brunch first ignited during my messy twenties at a place called La Strada in Houston, which was famous for its...

Suck at mixing drinks? Here’s how to become a real DIY bartender

There’s nothing quite like being stuck at home with bars and restaurants closed for business. Many of the bars and restaurants in Durango and the surrounding areas were, early on into the pandemic, offering takeout and to-go cocktails to keep the doors open. Now that we’re more than 9 months into the pandemic, the number has...

Bored? Turn these dusty old board games into drinking games

If you’re trying to come up with ways to occupy your time right now, you know it can be a tough feat to pull off. There’s almost nothing to do outside of your home at the moment — except for maybe shoveling the sidewalk or something when we get a few inches of snow — and we’re all starting to feel the pain of socially...

It may be the holidays, but with much of Colorado under Level Red COVID-19 restrictions, partying in person really isn’t the best idea right now. That notwithstanding, Ska Brewing Co. is hoping people will be in the mood to imbibe a new collection of hard seltzers with party-themed flavors.

The brewery’s new Ska Brewing...

The craft beverage industry, mental health, and a charity intersect in coloring book Durango-based communications collective releases adult coloring book

The Venn diagram of fans of adult coloring books and devotees of Colorado’s craft beverage industry has to have a high degree of overlap. Drinking beer and whiskey, and coloring both — at the very least — feels therapeutic.

And now there’s a coloring book aimed right at that overlap.

RadCraft, a Durango-based...

Checking for signs of Durango at Boulder’s Ska Street Brewstillery

One of the biggest disappointments of 2020 was all the restaurants, breweries, and events we missed out on. At the top of our list this year has been Ska Brewery Co.’s new Boulder location, Ska Street Brewstillery.

The new brewstillery, which opened in March 2020, is a hybrid company that offers Ska beers and Peach...

On the hunt for the best winter beers

Winter is officially here, and much like the denizens of the fictional Winterfell, Durangoans love their beer — especially when it’s frosty outside.

What makes for a great winter beer? It’s hard to pin it down to any one thing. It’s really in the eye of the beholder, er … palate of the beerholder. If we had to boil it...

Cantera’s fine dining transforms into Taco Libre, a taqueria

When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down Durango’s restaurants in the spring, Cantera was one of its casualties, never to open its doors again. The restaurant wasn’t dead, however. It was simply entering a period of metamorphosis.

Like a cecropia moth caterpillar (look it up, they start rather fancy) becoming its final...

How do the pizza and wings at Happy Pappy’s stand up to scrutiny?

The COVID-19 pandemic has been absolutely detrimental to restaurants, both locally and across the country — which is why we’re pleasantly surprised by ones that not only opened but also seemed to thrive during the year from hell.

Happy Pappy’s Pizza-N-Wings, on Durango’s North Main Avenue, is one such restaurant. It...
