Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project is a gift to the world.
Our good friends, Nate and Christine, were in town over a long weekend and as any good Denver local will do, we had to show them The Source. We walked in, looked around at a few shops, gawked at the pastries, smelled the flowers, and sampled some cheese. We were nearly finished with our little tour when Christine wanted to find out what was going on in the back room. So, we ventured a little further and found Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project.
Before walking in, I knew all about Crooked Stave. As a massive Saison fan, it’s one of my favorite breweries in Denver. Every single beer they make is worth the (sometimes) hefty (yet albeit worth it) price tag. Christine, a fellow sour fan, had to walk in and give the place a try.
Let’s just say Christine enjoyed herself. Crooked Stave was a big hit and if you haven’t been, go immediately.
- Colorado Wild Sage
- Autumn Surette
- St. Bretta Pomelo
- Pure Guava Petite Sour
- It’s hard to keep up with their Limited Release schedule so be sure to stop in often but, if they have it, order the Nightmare on Brett.
- This beer is aged in Leopold Brothers Apple Whiskey Barrels and is nothing short of incredible.
- Vielle – If you can’t get your hands on a Limited Release, like the Nightmare on Brett, the Vielle is a great Crooked Stave staple. This is a barrel-aged Saison that’s lightly dry hopped and has lemon skin, pear, and dusty apple notes. Give it a try!
- Luckily, Crooked Stave is surrounded by great options. Walk over to Comida for some Stella’s pork carnitas tacos.
- For your D.D. friends, they have Happy Leaf on tap!
