Crooked Stave has a tiny tasting room in a warehouse complex which should be very easy to get to when Pecos St. is open, unlike when I visited and discovered the road to be closed due to construction. Anyway, they have made good use of the small space putting in wooden furnishings, a small bar and interesting framed beer articles on the walls. I’d say maybe 25 people maximum could fit in here. The bartender was friendly and efficient. Being that Crooked Stave only makes barrel aged, wildly fermented beers the price, availability and selection suffer. But, the major plus is that the beers are absolutely phenomenal. I don’t care that there are only six beers on tap when all six of them are absolutely amazing. Things seem to rotate out at a reasonable pace so the opportunity to try new things will present itself fairly often. I wasn’t sure how to rate selection. It doesn’t cover a lot of ground, but everything is awesome.

Fun to finally visit Chad’s own place. Full of beer geeks and beer geek beers. A bit of a trek from down town, in an industrial lot (right next to a cooperage it seems). Very tasty beers across the board (quite improved from Fall 2011). No real flights, but that wasn’t an issue. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff that were very willing to converse about brewing. The near 60bbl foudres are quite impressive. Reasonable pricing and good beers. i hope to be back soon.

Nice small well lit tasting room with 4 or 5 beers on tap. Service is quick and friendly. Beer is well pricedfor brett and sour beers. Well worth seeking out!

One of the best places to hit in Denver for a beer tourist or even for locals. Not the best neighborhood but it is super convenient to access right off of I-70 and I-25. They seem to rotate new and interesting blends and dry-hopped versions of their standard brews quite often. It’s a bit on the pricey side ($8 for a glass of some blends and just a buck or two off for "tasters"), but for the most part, the quality is really there. They also sell some pretty sweet bottles on premise that you can’t find around town making it a great stop for visitors to Colorado. The staff is incredibly friendly and personable. This definitely shouldn’t be excluded from a Denver/Colorado beer tour.

This place is a must-visit for any sour head stopping in Denver. The tap room is located in an industrial area of town not far from the highway. When you visit this place, you realize how small of an operation Crooked Stave still is. The tap room’s small, with no frills. There’s room for about 12 people to sit down, with only 1 bathroom to serve all the punters. Still, the ambiance is reasonably pleasant. The service is quite good. I overheard one of the bartenders discussing Crooked Stave’s brewing process in great deal with one of the punters, so clearly the staff is knowledgeable. The selection’s not massive - there were 5 beers on tap available on my visit. There beers were very tasty indeed. Overall, I’d come to this place often if I lived in Denver. These guys are legit.

A bit small and in an out-of-way location but it is a neat place for beer geeks. Their beer is especially delicious and at good prices too.

Tiny taproom in an industrial part of town. Six Crooked Stave options to choose from, and all of them delicious. Great tunes, service and pours are generous and reasonable.

Visited November 2012.

Small tasting room in the back of an industrial park across the street from a school. Inside is a long wooden bar and some tables separated from the brewery side which is full of barrels. I enjoyed talking to the bartenders about how their beer is made by Prost (the German brewery down the street) and trucked over to be soured in the barrels. They had a pretty interesting set of taps going that they sell small glasses of (albeit for a lot of money). They also have bottles for sale either to go or to drink on premise. I had a set of tasters that I hadn’t tried (six of them) and a bottle of the bourbon Sentience sour quad. The white wine saison and white wine saison with citra hops were my favorites. Looking forward to seeing what they do in the future.
