Latinicity, the Latin American food hall that opened nine months ago off State Street, will unveil an 80-seat beer hall on Friday. Cerveceria represents a collaboration with Denver-based Crazy Mountain Brewery, according to a news release. The space, located on the Block 37’s third floor, next to the main Latinicity space will capitalize on relaxed state happy hour laws and serve only in the afternoon and evening.
Denver is also the home base of Richard Sandoval Restaurants, which explains Latinicity’s relationship with Crazy Mountain. They’ll be open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily, offering bottled, canned and draft beer. There’s also a variety of appetizers like nachos, ceviche and a chorifrita slider (chorizo, black Angus beef, manchego/bacon mojo, crispy potatoes).
The beer includes a rotating, seasonal selection and a 10-percent ABV American-style barleywine called "Lawyers, Guns and Money." A six-percent extra special bitter called "Horseshoes & Handgrenades" is made with five malts, plus chinook and amarillo hops.
The announcement comes as another high-profile food court, Eataly Chicago, makes changes to their lineup, as they try to figure out the Chicago market. While Latinicity still draws a robust crowd during lunch on weekdays, the space hasn’t been nearly as busy in the evenings and on weekends.
