The Wynkoop Brewing Company celebrated its 25th anniversary Saturday night. For a decade, Westword's offices were right across the street from the Wynkoop, and we spent many an afternoon, and evening, and night, um, "working" in the bar. If the Wynkoop hadn't been there, we would have saved a lot of money. But we would have missed a lot of memories, too -- and that got us thinking about what Denver would like like if the Wynkoop, Colorado's first brewpub, had never been born. With apologies to Stewart, here's our version of "It's a Wynderful Life."
