Englewood inclusive restaurant Brewability chosen as grant finalist, needs public to vote


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (KDVR) — An Englewood restaurant that hires adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities is calling on the community for help keeping its doors open.  

Morgan Forsyth, director of innovation for Brewability, said the restaurant’s sales are down from this time last year, but a new opportunity could help change everything.

“I like to say Brewability is more than just an employer of people with disabilities,” Forsyth said. “We really pride ourselves on being an accessible space.”  

For longtime employee Alex Randall, it’s more than just a job.

“I love to pour the beers,” Randall said. “I love hanging with the customers, love chatting sports with the customers.”

Each staff member pours their heart into the work. 

“I love talking to people and talking to them about Brewability and helping them when they need help,” Stephanie Silvestain said. 

Now chosen as a finalist for the Barclays Small Business Big Wins grant, Brewability could win $60,000. 

“I think this $60,000 would really be a game-changer for us in being able to keep our mission going and keep employing adults with disabilities as well as being an accessible space for anyone that needs it,” Forsyth said. 

The winner is selected by the public and Forsyth said every vote counts.  

“Please vote for Brewability and I hope everyone will come back and visit us,” Silvestain said.  

Supporters can vote once every day until the voting period closes on April 19. Winners will be announced on May 1.
