Purpose, reimagined.

Opened in 1897 as the Payne Chapel AME Church on land donated by General Palmer, our building was the first African American church in Colorado Springs. As such, it served not just as a place of worship, but as a gathering space for the community. 

The intention of the building lives on: a place to gather, to celebrate, to meet your neighbors and make friends. Not just a drink or a meal, but an experience, curated by our expert staff. You’ll find 200 beers handcrafted beers per year from Local Relic Artisan Ales, a plethora of intentionally sourced wines, each available by the glass from Crusade, and masterfully crafted cocktails-as-art from Araucana Bespoke Cocktails. Paired with exceptional, seasonal and creative cuisine from our kitchen, helmed by Chef Brent Beavers, make every day an occasion.

The Drinks Seasonal. Intentional. Inviting. Exploratory.

Most brewers are engineers, if not by trade or training, at least by philosophy. This, however, is beer as art – where each creation is but a snapshot, a fleeting moment of inspiration to be enjoyed with purpose.

Book Your Event Memories await.

We believe that every event is as unique as the people gathering together to celebrate.
