Colorado’s Best—All tied up in a bow.

It started out as a simple blog, but now Two Tarts, written by Longmont residents Sarah Welle and Dulcie Wilcox, has a business offshoot: gift boxes brimming with local products. Colorado Crafted, as the venture has been dubbed, isn’t your average wicker basket packed with flavored jams. Instead, Welle and Wilcox (both avid cooks) fill the boxes with their favorite ingredients—which means high-end, small-batch goods such as Novo Monda’s decadent, single-origin chocolate ganache, Oh Honey! Buzzed Reserve barbecue sauce (spiked with booze from Breckenridge Distillery), and mango-chipotle spiced Olomomo nuts. The most ingenious ensemble? The Brunch Box with honey, preserves, and coffee. Treat a loved one—or yourself.

Special Delivery

It’s been 95 years since the streets of Denver have seen horse-drawn beer deliveries to local watering holes, but to the delight of LoDo’s Friday happy hour crowd, history is repeating itself this summer. Every second and fourth Friday through August, Wynkoop Brewing Company, Colorado’s first brewpub—and Mayor John Hickenlooper’s first business success—is transporting its flagship Rail Yard Ale and other microbrews via vintage horsepower. The keg-laden wagon, pulled by the iconic Clydesdale horses, departs Wynkoop to make old-school delivery stops at downtown clients such as Wazee Supper Club, Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret, and Scruffy Murphy’s Irish Pub. Next time beer-thirty rolls around on a Friday and you find yourself on a downtown patio, raise your glass to the wagon—those horses are working a lot harder than you. Huzzah!
