Meow Wolf Denver Unveils Craft Beer Options for Convergence Station Opening
This Friday, Meow Wolf, the innovative immersive arts and entertainment company will open its doors to its third location in Denver, CO. Collaborating with 200 in-house artists as well as 110 local artists including muralists, sculptors, fiber artists and technologists, Denver’s outpost dubbed the Convergence Station tells the narrative of a freak cosmic event that merged four worlds from different universes, erasing the memories of all residents and spawning the mystifying disappearances of four women in the form of a massive immersive art experience.
Located in Denver’s Sun Valley neighborhood, Convergence Station follows the wildly successful path of its predecessors housing a labyrinth-like facility replete with secret doors leading to hidden rooms, interactive art and music elements as well as, and eye-popping art installations. Also taking a page from Meow Wolf’s Santa Fe and Las Vegas outposts, Convergence Station will feature craft beverage and food partners that honor both its host state and neighborhood.
At Meow Wolf’s Santa Fe home base, attendees can enjoy draft pours at the Float Cafe & Bar from a rotation of local breweries like Bow and Arrow Brewing, Santa Fe Brewing and Marble Brewing to name a few. When the Denver outpost opens Friday, the HELLOFOOD fusion cafe will similarly launch by serving up beer from Raíces Brewing, Denver’s Latino-owned brewery located just a stone throw away. In addition to a draft and three canned options from Raíces, the fusion cafe will also have beer and seltzer from Upslope Brewing, an exclusive collaborative beer from Santa Fe’s Marble Brewery called Day Ghost, a Japanese Rice Lager, and wine from Odell Wine Project.
“The theme of Convergence Station as an interplanetary melting pot is inspired by the beautifully diverse melding of cultures of Sun Valley, where we’re located,” said Brian Loo, Senior Director of Operations Development. “We started right here in the community as we wanted our cafe to reflect its rich diversity. We called upon local restaurateurs, craft breweries, coffee roasters, and bakeries to collaborate on our menu. The results are exponentially tasty with the vast majority of our offerings made right here in Colorado.”
