The Denver Post has breaking news about a 2-alarm fire at the New Belgium Brewery “in what appears to be a grain silo.” Apparently some of the employees have been evacuated and hopefully no one has been injured. More details will be posted here as they emerge.
UPDATE: Dave Butler, a.k.a. Chipper Dave, is reporting that the “fire is put out” and that it was “empty grain silo caught fire as worker was dismantling it. No affect to other brewing operations.”
UPDATE #2: ABC Channel 7 has an update on the story, and posted the photo below on their website, taken by Major King.
Didn’t a worker get crushed to death at New Belgium a few years ago also?

Hmm, I don’t remember that. Anybody else?
