CityROCK’s inviting eatery/bar, The Ute & Yeti recently reopened after a five-week closure to expand its kitchen; a new menu’s on the horizon soon-ish, though manager Matthew Barritt’s not ready to give a date. He’s our outwardly friendly server one Saturday after bouldering. From a great selection of nearly 100 beers, we fall into the juicy, citrus hops of Michigan-based New Holland Brewing’s Tangerine Space Machine IPA and Centennial-based Resolute Brewing Company’s Dragon Chaser Green Tea IPA (a cheap $3.70 and $2.77, respectively, at happy hour), which finishes with a faint, tea-tannins note, that bitterness folding seamlessly into the hops. Eschewing the traditional for a health-food spin, U&Y’s menu leads fresh and veg-heavy. A sambal-chile-spiked spicy veggie broth fortifies the ramen ($10.50/$2 extra for pulled pork), stinging the throat as punctuation for the tenderized pork, delightfully meaty shiitake mushrooms, plus egg, kale, broccoli and standard noodles. Two of us can’t finish it.
