About:

Black Shirt Brewing Co. was founded in 1999 and opened to the public in 2012. As the old adage goes, “good things take time.” Since our opening, we’ve collected many awards and accolades for the quality of our beer, our ambiance, and our customer service (you can check those out here). Many years ago, we became fascinated with the art and science of fermentation and the social aspect of sharing what we made with our community. None of us had never operated a commercial brewery before but we jumped into our journey with both feet—we read every book we could get our hands on, studied every article, and got to work. It’s been said that you can do anything you put your mind to, and we set out to prove that to ourselves.

11 Highlands homes for sale from $350K-$1.2m

The Highlands area (Highland and West Highland) is one of the most coveted areas of central Denver. Its close proximity to Lower Highlands (LoHi) restaurants and bars like Avanti, Linger, Recess Beer Garden, and Root Down make it a fantastic area for socializing. Highlands is also extremely convenient for those who work in downtown Denver, as it is typically a 10 minute commute by car at most or a 25-35 minute walk.

Rebecca A. Hunt, Ph.D, Senior Instructor at University of Colorado Denver and resident of Highlands, shares a bit of history of how Highlands was established:

In December of 1858, William Larimer and D.C. Collier waded the partly frozen Platte to examine the land on the west bank. They staked out Highland across from the infant communities of Denver City and Auraria. At first not many people showed an interest in Highland. In fact, land values were so low that lots owners could not give land away. In 1859, A.C. Wright tried to trade 136 lots in Highland to Jose Merival for a horse, saddle, and bridle. Merival declined because the horse was worth more than the land. Through 1859 Highland existed only on paper although hopeful developers gave the streets names like Byers, Wootton, Wing, Wallingford, and Murphy after their peers. None of those names made it onto the official North Denver maps.

On December 3, 1859, the Jefferson legislature consolidated Auraria, Denver, and Highland into the City of Denver, Auraria, and Highland. Later that month they dropped “Auraria and Highland” from the name. The area called Highland in the early plats eventually became North Denver.

The May 1864 flood wiped out parts of Denver so people began to move up the hill. The Fifteenth Street Bridge and then streetcars made North Denver accessible. In 1875 Owen Le Fevre, and other developers petitioned the Arapahoe County Commissioners to establish a village government. After annexing Potter Highlands and then Highland Park they formed the Town of Highlands which became a city in 1885. The 1889 town ordinances restricted livestock in the streets, children’s games, rude language, and the number of saloons.

Le Fevre’s artesian well provided clean drinking water and the breezes from the west provided clean air by blowing away any smog. People supported bond issues for schools, a library, and other civic improvements because those services were what a town needed. Eventually, though the town fathers found it hard to maintain city services so in 1896, the residents voted to be annexed to Denver.

5 things you should know before building a new house

1) Builder’s Contract

A builder contract to build a new house is designed to protect the builder. This is different from most contracts to buy an existing home as it is designed to protect the buyer.

2) Negotiations

While a builder is not typically willing to negotiate on a house that has not been built yet, they can be willing to on a spec or inventory home, especially if it has been sitting for a while.

If you find a spec home you like, find out how long it has been sitting. The longer it has been sitting, the more likely the builder is to negotiate with you.

3) Add-ons and make goods

Since the builder contract does not leave room for much negotiation, keep in mind that building a new house can come with delays. Though not guaranteed, this may be an opportunity to leverage delays to negotiate in “make-goods”.

4) Get everything in writing

If there’s one thing real estate agents learn in this business it is to get everything in writing. This avoid confusion and prevents a he said, she said situation, especially when it comes to things the builder agrees to do for you that are outside of the original contract.

5) Hire a real estate agent

The biggest reason to hire an agent is that it doesn’t cost you anything to get an expert in the industry to have an extra set of eyes on the situation.

Not only is it helpful to have an extra set of eyes beyond your own, a real estate agent is going to help you do the heavy lifting on the negotiating side. This comes in handy when you need to negotiate those make-goods.
