Isn’t it great to be local?
Jake’s Brew Bar … is a “brew” bar serving brewed coffee and brewed beer! Clever, eh? They have been open about 12 months, and today have tons of business walking through the doors in the revitalized Main Street of Downtown Littleton, Colorado.
Barista Matt was gracious from the moment I walked in the door, offering a friendly smile with a kind demeanor. He made me feel at home for the afternoon I spent in the front window writing and blogging.
They have chosen two different local roasters as their coffee vendors: Novo Coffee and Corvus Coffee; both are well respected roasters in Colorado.
Some coffeehouses are heavy on one type of customer or the other; you may see mostly students or a lot of artists. This place seemed to draw a nice blend of the community with folks chatting with each other comparing qualities of local craft beer and a few folks sitting at their computers sending last minute emails on a Friday afternoon.
Jake’s was named after the owner’s father, Jacob Barth. He is from Albuquerque, NM and served in the Army during of WWII. Owners, Janie and her daughter, Vanessa, also own a wine bar around the corner off of Main St. called Katie’s ~ named after her mother.
It is a family affair! Step in during the Western Welcome Week coming up this summer.
