Built around 1892 by Harry and Jennie Whitehead as the Arcade Hotel, which didn’t last long. In 1902 Jennie reopened the space as a boardinghouse and restaurant. Since then it has mainly remained a restaurant space, with the tradition continuing as Après Handcrafted Libations.

Join us all month long for our Giving Tap! We will be donating 10% of the proceeds from one tap line every month to a different local Colorado non-profit organization. This month, we're featuring Summit Advocates for Victims of Assault and 4 Noses Brewing Company!


Summit Advocates for Victims of Assault was founded in 1979, out of a need to support victims of domestic violence. As the community has grown they have expanded their services to include victims of sexual assault, stalking, and other trauma. Local law enforcement, the hospital, and community members continue to use the confidential 24-hour crisis hotline and advocacy services as a critical resource. In 1996, they opened thier first safe house, which has consistently been occupied by women and children seeking refuge from battering and abuse. They also provide safe housing to men in local hotels. Their advocacy services include assistance in navigating the legal system and referrals to community resources. In the effort to reduce violence in our community they provide outreach and education in our local schools, businesses, and to the general public. They also work closely with the criminal justice system to increase accountability for perpetrators, and to ensure that the rights of victims are respected.

Why They Exist:

Every day in our Country 700 women are abused and 4 are murdered by their intimate partners. Battering is the single major cause of injury to women – more frequent than auto accidents, muggings and rapes combined. 53% percent of battering husbands abuse their children too. Children in violent families learn from their experience. 30% of those children become violent adults. They often suffer from disrupted development, poor health and poor academic performance.
