OLD CHICAGO PIZZA & TAPROOM OPENING MAY 8

Brighton, CO (May 8, 2017) – Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, a traditional casual dining restaurant known for its delicious, hand crafted pizza and world class craft beer list, will open its new location in the Brighton Prairie Center in front of Target, at 2155 Prairie Center Pkwy, Brighton, CO 80601 on May 8th.  This store opening will be the 25th Old Chicago in Colorado, and the 109th location nationwide.

To celebrate the upcoming opening, they will be offering free pizza for a year to the first 100 guests on opening day.  Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom partnered with the Brighton School District 27j to donate proceeds from its pre-opening dinners to the local nonprofit. 

The hand-crafted dough options include Chicago Thick, a Tavern Thin and an Ale-Infused dough that highlight the eleven specialty pizzas on the menu.  Famous taproom starters such as the Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls, and the one-of-a-kind Italian Nachos will also be sure to delight Brighton visitors. 

With over 40 draft beers available, more than 90 craft beers available on the menu and a beer expert always on staff, The Craft Beer Authority has something for everyone! All menu items will be available daily until 1:00a.m., and the restaurant will be open daily until 2:00a.m.

“We are excited to bring our new location to Brighton.  Being the Craft Beer Authority is allowing us to bring in some of the most unique beers available from some of the best national and local breweries.  Since 1976 we’ve been serving handcrafted pizzas every day. That is expertise you can taste!” states General Manager Anna Wells of the restaurant opening.

More importantly, one restaurant staple that will not be on the menu is their strong commitment to giving back to its community. Not only will Old Chicago be joining the restaurant scene in Brighton, but it will also be joining the city’s commitment to offer its residents a better and brighter future by partnering with the Brighton School District 27j.  Representatives from the Brighton School District 27j will be on-site during all three of Old Chicago’s pre-opening dinners to spread the word and help raise charitable contributions.  In addition, Old Chicago will donate $1 from every Chicago 7 pizza sold plus 10% off all online to-go orders (using promo code Brighton27j) from 5/8/17-6/4/17 will be added to the Brighton School District 27j donation.  “Come visit our new location and help us achieve our goal of raising over $10k for the Brighton School District!” states Wells.
