The ViewHouse is now open with its Colorado Springs location, the fourth currently in parent company Lotus Concepts' portfolio of eateries. The first location opened eight years ago in Denver, with Centennial and Littleton locations following; a Thornton store's planned for 2021 as well.

We took a tour on Tuesday, Feb. 11 and were treated to a limited menu and drink sampling. Read the captions of the below photos for more info on the outfit.

Look for 35 local taps and bottles total plus 15 area distilleries on display. ViewHouse has its own beers as well, currently being brewed for them by Denver Beer Company. I sampled a flight: the 1858 IPA (mosaic and citra hop, bitter and easy drinking), Ballpark Pale Ale, Rockpile Red Ale, Que Pasa Mexican-style Lager (made with cucumber purée- yum), and Peach Buzz Blonde. - MATTHEW SCHNIPER
