This is located in one of those warehouses converted to artisinal food court kind of places that are growing more popular everywhere. It seemed like a pretty good place to go for some food and a beer. The coolest thing about this place is they have a giant steam punk looking regulator on display that allows them to serve every beer w/’ the exact correct pressure. This is important because how would you ever know the beer is perfectly carbonated if they didn’t have some enormous and obvious contraption sitting on the corner of the bar exuding love and passion for beer? I appreciate the ease w/ which this allowed me to determine that there beer was pertly carbonated. In any case, the beer here is good and prices are reasonable for drafts, esp. considering what they cost in bottles. There’s over a dozen beers on tap, a feat they achieve by making half the beers just the same thing mixed w/ some other kind of fruit juice or sambucha. If you are going in for ticks, be prepared to do a whole bunch of copy and pasting because there is a lot the differences between these beers can be subtle to say the least. I thought these guys brewed a couple duds for sure but they had a couple single hop IPAs that were good enough to make this a must visit for anyone into beer on their own--and there were other really good beers as well. The service was pretty good though our bartender did get confused as far as what was what on our tasting trays. Overall, this place was a good experience and I think that I would most definitely come back if I was in the area again.

Stopped by here with Andrew after GABF 2014. The source is a renovated warehouse with a few trendy restaurants and Crooked Stave’s tasting room. They had a ton of taps of really cool offerings as well as a decent bottle selection. You can get tasters as well.

The Source is a very cool space. Sort of like an indoor farmer’s market with a butcher, spice shop, bar and brewery, among other things. I wish I liked Crooked Stave as much as the place where it is located. You have to go up to the bar to order everything; no server will come to you table even though the place is tiny. The servers were too cool for school, they see that you want to order a beer but still finish their conversations before taking your order. This is from memory, but I’m remembering they had about 10 taps of beer that was very similar in style. The beer I had was not very good. They specialize in Brett/funk/sour type of ales and that is admittedly not my thing, but I thought maybe they could change my mind. After all, there was a time when I didn’t like hoppy beers all that much. Not that any servers could be bothered to tell me anything about their beers. I was very disappointed in Crooked Stave.

The source is a large re-used warehouse or industrial space with several restaurants, a liquor store, a hipster market and a bunch of bars scattered about. A small crowded parking lot our front, and a larger less crowded one to your right as you pull in. Crooked Stave is in the back left hand corner of The Source. And it really is just a corner - corner bar and some bar tables, nothing fancy. But the beer and the choices are amazing. Over a dozen taps plus bottles, including a small but very well chosen selection of Other People’s Beers. They’ll do flights in any number or combo, and they also have some recommended flight combos. Service was friendly and they knew their stuff. No food at Crooked Stave, but you can bring stuff in from the hipster market or elsewhere.

Brewhouse / Tasting room in The Source - a market with restaurants, coffee shop, etc. Very industrial feel. Lots of CS offerings on tap, a bit pricey, bottles for sale, can get crowded. I liked their old location better.

Located in a neat building in the river north district of Denver. Great coffee shop in here, and a good bottle shop right next to the tasting room. The setting is very industrial, a bit too "sanitary" feeling for me. Character, but not warm. Beers are all great, and there are lots on tap. Prices are expensive, even for tasters. Great to do once in a while, not an everyday hangout.

L’apothéose de la rusticité et de la fermentation sauvage réuni dans la même salle. The Source est un complexe pour jeune faune urbaine réunissant resto, commerces et bureaux. Juste à côté se trouve le Proper Pour, toute une valeur ajoutée.

Visited during GABF week, VERY crowded but the staff pulled through fine. This place looks great and the beers are awesome. Had a sandwich in one of the restaurants next to the brewpub and it was very tasty.

The Source itself is pretty cool. It’s an old brick warehouse with a butcer, a baker (no candlestick maker), a liquor store, an artisan cheese shop and a couple others as well as two restaurants and the brewery. I recommend the street taco place (it’s a little overpriced, but the food is delicious). The taproom is nicely laid out. It’s a little on the small side, but that wasn’t an issue when we were there because it was not overcrowded. The selection of beers was good. About 16 or so beers on tap and a handful of Croked Stave beers in bottles as well as 12 or so bottles from other breweries around the world. The quality of the beers was amazing as well. Ordering tasters can add up quickly since their sours are priced at $4 per taster, but the beers are worth it and they are not stingy on the taster pours. A very enjoyable visit!
