A couple videos.  This is a very popular brewery in Denver, Colorado

Dry Dock Brewing Company was created in October 2005 when Kevin DeLange, owner of The Brew Hut homebrew shop, decided that his homebrew store would benefit from an attached brewery.[2] With the help of homebrewer Kevin Kellogg, the two opened Dry Dock Brewing Company. After almost 4 years in a small unit adjacent to The Brew Hut, Dry Dock expanded to the end unit in the same strip mall, both increasing the tasting room area from 30 seats to over 80 and upgrading to a 7 barrel steam jacketed brew system.[3] Dry Dock quickly outgrew its expansion, with another expansion planned.[1]

Five Colorado cities listed as "Best Places to Live in America"

Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Centennial, Boulder and Fort Collins made the list, which was released Monday.

In describing Castle Rock as the 16th- best place to live, the magazine noted that "a far cry from its Wild West beginnings, Castle Rock has set out to become a major magnet for business."

Highlands Ranch followed at 23rd for "some of the best outdoor stuff Colorado has to offer."

Centennial ranked 49th. "There's a lot to pack in: the pedestrian and bike-friendly Centennial Link Trail and brand new Centennial Center Park," the magazine noted.

Thank goodness.  Those bike lanes were very poorly designed and leaves no room for cars.   

http://www.ourcoloradonews.com/centennial/news/bike-lane-cover-up-priced-at/article_6284f558-e1b5-11e1-a2dc-001a4bcf887a.html

City planners learned a tough lesson last month as residents in two Centennial neighborhoods expressed disappointment with the decision to add bike lanes without checking with the locals first.

Public backlash over narrowed lanes along Telluride and Otero/Adams, forced city planners to admit they plopped the lanes in last year as part of a transportation master plan, but did so without garnering adequate input from the public.

Residents rejected three proposed alternatives proposed by the city and asked that the lanes simply be removed. At the time, public works officials estimated the cost of removing the existing lanes to be “ball parked” at around $50,000, but noted the final price tag would really depend on which solution was implemented.

An Aug. 3 email from Wayne Reed, Centennial’s director of community development, announced that in the course of the city’s ongoing effort to maintain street pavement surfaces, it recently applied a slurry seal treatment on more than 20 miles of streets, including Otero/Adams and Telluride. He added that the solution had “effectively covered all striping and as a result of community input, the City will not restripe the bike lanes.”
