Handlebar Tap House Happy Customers

Shout out to the Handlebar Tap House at Independence Center on Monument & Broadway where it looks like bikers are enjoying the convenience of having a bike-themed brewpub along the Colorado River Front trail. Yay! Now all we need is a bike shop in there.

Building the Independence Center was one of our favorite commercial multi-use construction projects!
