Denver Beer Creates New Brew for Union Station

The Denver Beer Co. has created a new beer to commemorate the renovation of historic Denver Union Station.

Union Kolsch will be sold exclusively at Union Station’s Terminal Bar and Denver Beer’s Platte Street location just across the tracks. Located on the east side of the station’s Great Hall, the Terminal bar features Union Station’s original ticket windows and an outdoor patio overlooking Wynkoop Street. Union Kolsch joins more than 30 varieties of Colorado craft beers offered at the bar, as well as its extensive wine list.

The brew, inspired by Denver’s rich brewing history, is a bright, straw-colored ale with a white head. Malty and lightly hopped, it has a touch of fruit and a clean, refreshing finish.

Various bars, restaurants and retailers call Union Station home. The redevelopment of the building also established The Crawford Hotel, a 112-room boutique hotel named for urban preservationist Dana Crawford. The station and hotel feature more than 600 pieces of eclectic Western art curated by NINE dot ARTS. Pieces include vintage family pictures and travel postcards, inherited objects and a “found objects” collage collected from under the station’s benches during construction, including 1940s celebrity trading cards.
