CRAFT URBANISM: BEER GARDENS IN THE CITY FABRIC presented by Westword in partnership with the Biennial of the Americas 2013 On the afternoon of July 20 a pocket of downtown Denver will be activated by series of pop-up beer gardens. Drawn from the city’s urban fabric, four locations within a single block radius—14th Street, 15th Street, Wynkoop Street and Wazee Street—will be transformed into distinct spaces for people to gather and enjoy locally crafted beer. Scattered along the Cherry Creek River, above the river and between buildings, the sites will engage a pedestrian bridge, sidewalk and an alley. The experience of each garden will offer a unique view of the city and draw attention to different aspects of Denver’s urban design. Socially activating spaces not normally used for gathering, each garden will showcase beer from one of four local breweries—Denver Beer Co. (the official beer sponsor of the Biennial of the Americas 2013), Wynkoop Brewing Company, Great Divide Brewing Co., and Strange Brewing Company. Food from Mikes Kitchen will also be available. A sampling of urban spaces and beer, each garden, like the beer that will be served, will offer something distinct and different from the next. As a temporary redrafting of urban environments, Craft Urbanism invites a new way of experiencing the city of Denver. This special, one-day event is apart of Biennial’s 2013 exhibition, Draft Urbanism and culminates a series of Biennial cultural celebrations starting July 16- 20. Created by Paul Andersen and Adam Lerner with Mardee Goff. Designed by Paul Andersen.

Biennial of the Americas 2013
THE BIENNIAL OF THE AMERICAS is an international festival of ideas, art, and culture hosted in Denver, Colorado, that provides a nonpartisan platform for leaders in business, government, civil society, and the arts to examine the significant issues impacting life in the Americas.
Beginning on July 16, the Biennial will bring together leaders from throughout the Americas for four days of thought-provoking symposia and peer-to-peer workshops (called clínicas) to explore the theme – Unleashing Human Potential: Reinventing Communities, Business, and Education. The Biennial will also present a public exhibition of art and architectural installations, titled Draft Urbanism, and will work with local institutions to highlight the innovation and creativity of the region. Craft Urbanism: Beer Gardens in the City Fabric is a special, one-day event apart of Draft Urbanism taking place on the afternoon of July 20 and culminating a series of Biennial cultural celebrations starting July 16- 20.
