Pour your own craft beer, wine, and cider at First Draft

[PRESS RELEASE] Denver, CO, March 3, 2015 – First Draft, a new taproom and kitchen concept, is coming to the River North (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver in late spring/early summer 2015. With 40 taps of craft beer, wine, and cider and the ability to “pour your own” by the ounce, First Draft will let customers taste and pour at their own pace in an inviting and fun environment. On tap will be an ever-rotating selection of high quality craft beer, wine, and cider from Colorado as well as the rest of the US. At First Draft, you can customize your own drinking experience.

First Draft is located at 1309 26th St. in RiNo, near the corner of 26th & Larimer. Part of the 2601 Larimer project, First Draft will feature a full kitchen, a mezzanine overlooking the main floor, and front patio complete with a fire pit. The kitchen will serve small plates and shareable items that pair with beverage offerings. Utilizing local and seasonal ingredients, First Draft will partner will local providers to create a menu that looks to put an upgraded twist on traditional taproom favorites.

“We're excited to bring a unique drinking experience to Denver, and even more excited to be a part of everything happening in RiNo,” said Mark Slattery, Owner and General Manager. Slattery, known in the Colorado beer world as the “Denver Beer Guy”, looks to curate a different set of tap offerings for Denver. “We plan to showcase the best craft beer we can get our hands on. Whether it’s being able to pour beer from some of the great small breweries on the other side of Denver, or bringing in a highly sought-after keg from across the country, we promise that our tap list will be as exciting as our draft system,” he said.

First Draft has partnered with iPourIt, the leader in self-service tap technology. iPourIt is a unique patented technology that allows customers to pour their own beer. A valve controls beer flowing through the tap while a meter measures the amount of beer a customer pours accurate to more than 1/10th of an ounce.

"We at iPourIt are thrilled to be providing the largest self-serve beer system in Colorado to First Draft,” said Joseph McCarthy, CEO of iPourIt. “With more than 30 breweries in Denver alone, First Draft will be the go-to location for enthusiasts to sample local fare as well as rare brews ‘By the Ounce’. iPourIt's patented self-serve beer and wine system is the perfect complement to First Draft's comprehensive business plan to provide a differentiated experience to its patrons," he said.

First Draft is a new taproom and kitchen concept from First Draft, LLC, a Colorado Limited Liability Company.
