Situated directly on the Ralston Creek Trail in Arvada, Colorado, the Colorado Tap House aims to cater to both the casual beer drinker and outdoor recreation community alike with a natural Colorado themed aesthetic. Designed with a generous bicycle parking space, it invites users off the trail with a view of the spacious outdoor gaming and gathering area offering cornhole, bocce ball, natural boulder seating and a native grass play area as well as a variety of seating options for patrons.

Valerian worked closely with the design team and client to create this uniquely Colorado landscape. Due to the sites proximity to Ralston Creek, portions of the site are within the floodplain. Valerian developed creative ways to incorporate the outdoor gathering space while adhering to the requirements of the floodplain.  The Tap House will open early 2022.  For more information refer to the Colorado Tap House website:
