Restaurateur Chuck Schafer has announced a new eatery and bar. It’s to be called the Purple Toad Social Tap and Grill (11870 Stapleton Drive, Peyton, facebook.com/purpletoadsocialtap), and it’s due to open as soon as September. Local diners know Schafer from Powers Boulevard spot The Cow Pub & Grill, as well as Prime 25, which he co-owns with Sam and Kathy Guadagnoli.

“I wanted to do something with me and my brother [Heath],” Chuck says. The brothers Schafer are teaming up with Chef Wayne Cooper, formerly of Prime 25.

“We want to be the place that’s not a typical sports bar,” Chuck says. He plans to build the menu from 100 percent Colorado-made ingredients. Expect pizzas, steak burgers from house-cut beef and, as mandated by the name, frog legs. Expect also 24 taps of Colorado beer, with craft brews taking center stage, as well as craft cocktails built from Colorado-distilled spirits.
