Itâ€™s like they always say, location, location, location. At Freshcraft on Blake St, we have been extremely lucky to be located so close to so many things. We are less than a block away from the vaunted 16th Street Mall and just a couple of blocks from both the Pepsi Center and Coors Field.Â The Denver Convention Center is also just a short stumble away, as many attendees of the Great American Beer Festival can attest. Since we have opened, a pretty cool little craft beer district has developed and has been established within walking distance.
When the plans were announced that Denverâ€™s Union Station was being revitalized myself and others at Freshcraft werenâ€™t sure what to expect, or how it would affect us.Â Now, a couple of years after the Â Â Â Â Â re-opening, I must say that Union Station is one of the best things that has happened in Lower Downtown in a long time!Â Weâ€™re extremely lucky to be just a short walk from what has become the crown jewel at the center of our city.
Itâ€™s also becoming easier and easier to get to Freshcraft.Â Public transportation, walkability, and bike-ability are important to us as owners and residents of the greater Denver Metro. The light rail and commuter trains terminate at Union Station, including the A-line from the airport and the G-line from western suburbs like Arvada and Wheat Ridge is (coming soon!).Â Thereâ€™s an RTD bus stop just a few yards away â€“ and the mall ride will now zip you from either Union Station or Broadway to less than a half of block from our front door. Things seem to be going in the right direction!
Whether youâ€™re in town for work or stop before hitting the mountains (or any other sort of Colorado recreation vacation) weâ€™re a convenient stop. Or if youâ€™re a resident hitting a show or a ballgame â€“ check us out before or after. I promise that weâ€™ll do our best to help you to enjoy your time at Freshcraft and make you want to come back.
