This has been a busy summer for me and life does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon! Besides being a full-time mom, Realtor, wife and entrepreneur, I am also working hard to help bring something special to the city of Brighton. Many of you may know that I am working on project with in Downtown Brighton which involves the renovation of the old Buddhist church found on the outskirts of Brighton right off of the highway 85 coming in from Denver. The project is currently in the renovation process as we strive to keep the historic feel of the church while adding modern day touches and go-green amenities.
The church is something special and that is what we felt when we first toured the space. It had been left abandoned and unused for ten years and we felt this was a space that needed to be restored and re-loved by the community. This space was once a gathering area for young and old alike and we hope that once the project is finished, it can be a place once again where friends and families gather to enjoy one another’s company and good food and drink.
Currently, we are looking for a Craft brewery user to move into the space but we are also interested in a whiskey distillery/tasting room or cider distillery/tasting room. With the amount of space and the great location, this is sure to be a spot perfect for any distillery. It is not like Colorado is a stranger to good distilleries; we have quite a few in the area and are hoping to add to the already great collection.
If you are curious to check out distilleries around Denver and the surrounding area, check a few of these out: Vapor Distillery in Boulder, Stranahan’s in Denver, First Draft in Rino, and the Colorado Cider Company. What better way to spend an evening with friends or a weekend adventure with a loved one then sitting down to taste a few cold brews? Denver already has a great love for our breweries and distilleries and we hope to continue that love in Brighton that is just a short ride from downtown Denver.
With all that being said, we are looking for someone to set up shop at this beautiful church. If you or anyone you know is looking to have a space to run a brewery or a distillery, give me a call today and I would love to take you around the space and show you our current plans for everything. Let’s bring a new taste to Brighton, one of the cold brew kind!
