PLATTE ST.— Denver Beer Co.'s Clown Question, Bro, a Canadian lager coined by the viral video of Bryce Harper (19-year-old Washington Nationals rookie) shunning a journalist's "clown question" about his beer preference, hits taps today. A portion of proceeds from tonight's sales at Denver Beer Co. will be donated to a memorial fund for officer Celena Hollis, who was shot and killed at last night's City Park Jazz concert.

E. COLFAX— Denver on a Spit visited newly opened Las Tortas at 1818 E. Colfax: "Where does Las Tortas stand among the torta greats of Denver? It is early still, but I was most definitely impressed with what I had, and unless something changes (I'll let you know if it does), it will be on the top of my torta rotation from here on out. Do yourself a favor and get there." [DOAS]
