Black Sky Brewing - Former Breckenridge brewer moves a block East with metal and Newhaven pizza

Harry Smith and Lila Mackey are opening up a heavy metal themed brewery at 490 Santa Fe.

Their coming soon sign promises a brewery, taproom, and New Haven style pizza.

There are no plans for Black Sky to produce beer for off-site consumption - no cans or bottles - but maybe you'll be able to get a growler or keg if you ask really nicely?

Congratulations to Harry and Lila on the new venture.
