Denver Business Owner To Join the Ranks of Honorary Members - Knighthood of... by Upper Colfax Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Denver, CO & Brussels, BEL (Sep 2011) - On Friday, September 2, 2011, Denver small business owner James Pachorek will be inducted into the Knighthood of the Brewers’ Mash Staff during a traditional ceremony in Brussels, Belgium. James and his wife Tina are owners of the three Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Cafes and the Royal Hilltop Tap Room located in Denver and the metro area.

The Belgian brewers' guild bestows the honorary title on retailers, restaurateurs and importers who do missionary work for Belgium's breweries, most of which are far too small to compete on their own with the Heinekens and Coronas of the world. James is being recognized for the efforts he and his wife have exerted over the last four years to bring the hard to get Belgium beers to Colorado. Their efforts have paved the way for other local restaurants to have the opportunity to offer these imports.

The new knights are inducted or "enthroned" during a ceremony that takes place during the Belgian Beer Weekend held each September honoring St. Arnoldus.
