Speakers – Matthew Schniper – Side Dish with Schniper food and drink journalist and Jeff Zearfoss of Local Relic and Carter Payne About - 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.
