FATE Brewing will expand space, production next month — A major expansion is coming to Boulder's FATE Brewing Co., not yet two years old. The brew pub, known best for its kosch beers, bucked Colorado's recent trend of new breweries opening neighborhood taprooms, instead opting for a full-scale restaurant, with its beers sharing taps with drafts from other breweries.

House Dems to recruit Andrew Romanoff to run again — While Andrew Romanoff isn't saying much about his plans following his loss last week to Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, D.C. news outlet Roll Call reported Thursday that House Democrats will mount an effort to recruit him to run again in 2016.

Denver voters could get new whack at residency rule, for appointees — Posted: 11/12/2014 12:01:00 AM MST Updated: 11/12/2014 01:46:22 AM MST Denver voters long ago repealed a requirement that city workers live within city limits, but a group of residents is working to revive the rule for mayoral appointees. They're aiming to place a charter amendment on the ballot for next May's municipal election, when Mayor Michael Hancock is up for re-election.

Twice-beaten, Andrew Romanoff faces uncertain political future — Posted: 11/11/2014 12:01:00 AM MST Updated: 11/11/2014 12:03:07 AM MST After his last crushing defeat, Andrew Romanoff spent two years lying low before launching a bid for political resurrection. This time, after a second decisive loss in a high-profile race, the former Colorado House speaker's path forward may not be so simple.

Denver City Council set to vote on $1.7B operating budget for 2015 — Posted: 11/10/2014 03:31:22 PM MST Updated: 11/10/2014 03:31:39 PM MST The Denver City Council on Monday night is set to give final approval to a proposed $1.7 billion operating budget for 2015 that pays for three police recruit classes, Sheriff Department reforms and big public works projects.

Cory Gardner, Mike Coffman were top candidates — Now that the smoke has cleared from last Tuesday's election, D.C. media analysts are busy crowning the best candidates of the 2014 midterm elections. Colorado came out big Monday: Chris Cillizza, author of The Fix blog for The Washington Post, says Republican Sen.-elect Cory Gardner was the best candidate of the entire election, anywhere, after beating Democratic Sen.

Surge in older voters aided Cory Gardner's victory over Mark Udall — Posted: 11/06/2014 12:01:00 AM MST Updated: 11/06/2014 01:25:59 AM MST Some of Colorado's grassroots campaigners, especially Democrats, had hoped near-universal mail-in balloting might be their not-so-secret weapon in drumming up an avalanche of votes before this week's election.

U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman aims for 4th term; Andrew Romanoff seeks upset — Posted: 11/04/2014 02:50:40 PM MST Updated: 11/04/2014 02:59:00 PM MST This was supposed to be the election that booted U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman from office, the nail in the coffin after the conservative Republican barely won re-election two years ago in a drastically redrawn suburban Denver district.

When campaigns collide — On Monday morning, Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper's campaign was down in Centennial as the election nears the climax. So, it turns out, were campaigners for U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, a Republican locked in a tight re-election bid. It was only inevitable that they'd end up in the same Snooze restaurant at the same time.
