Twenty years ago today, the bloom was on full in lower downtown Denver.  Maybe that was even before they called it "LoDo."  Brothers Chris and Steve Black dared to open a tap house a half-block from Coors Field.  And despite its ominous moniker, the Falling Rock Tap House is still standing at 1919 Blake Street.  Chris Black joined Steve and Rodney on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

Five Points' celebrated brewery Spangalang (named for the classic jazz cymbal ride pattern) celebrates one year in business this weekend.  Co-founders Taylor Rees and Darren Boyd visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis" with stories and tastes.

Even though Rees, Boyd and Austin Wiley are experienced brewers, they're on feeling a bit giddy with the first year's success.  Their popular Belgian table beer "Sugarfoot" won a gold medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival.  "I think we brewed that beer a whopping month and a half after we opened," said Rees.
