Brass Tap, Loyal Coffee and Cerberus Brewing — all ready for you

Posted By on Mon, Sep 12, 2016 at 11:29 AM

Some folks believe in the law of threes — something to the effect of either good or bad things happening in a sequence of threes, or humor being most potent in a trio (e.g. a standup comedy refrain). 

Whether the law of threes has any bearing here, I know not, but Colorado Springs is enjoying the rare occurrence of three new outfits officially opening today: Loyal Coffee, Cerberus Brewing Co. and The Brass Tap

Between a few Indy staffers, we attended soft openings of Cerberus and Brass Tap over the weekend, and dropped into Loyal this morning for some fantastic vanilla and chocolate lattes. 

The report from our publisher and beer aficionado Carrie Simison is that Cerberus was off to a beautiful start all round, with on-point brews and excellent eats (at a great price point considering the quality). They will be open Sundays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays 11 a.m. until midnight.

Loyal will serve from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and will host grand opening celebrations at month's end — details to follow. 

And Brass Tap — somewhat of a sports bar with giant TV's galore and 60 taps — is open from 11 am. to 1 a.m., daily, and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Catch daily happy hours to include military appreciation nights, which earns 50 percent off select drafts.  

Here's a batch of photos that gives a little taste of each establishment, staring with Cerberus:
