I do prefer the barrel cellar to the source, but the source has really grown on me the new servers are for the most part friendly and quick. every once in a while will see some of the older staff which is nice. Focusing on the beer it self a must visit when in denver

The Source is a large former hardware warehouse that has been transformed into a very hip indoor market of sorts with a few food options, an upscale liquor store and, of course, Crooked Stave in the very back of the building. Crooked Staveís space is open and fairly stark to keep in theme with its neighbors. Stray graffiti and exposed brick reminding visitors this used to be an abandoned warehouse along with thoughtful background music give this space character. I hear a lot of my peers complain about the arrogance of the wait staff here, but Iíve always had good to downright friendly service. The beers are top notch, appealing to beer elitists. Everything is wildly fermented and crafted absolutely excellently. Crooked Stave is, as a result, perhaps the most expensive brewery to visit, but the product is certainly worth it. $7 10 oz. pours are not cheap, but not exorbitant for the style and there is no other brewery offering this type of product on this scale. The beer list is usually brief, but always very high quality and normally something interesting is on. I stop in for a beer or two quite often.

Great beer! Crooked Stave does amazing sours, must try! Located in a very rundown part of town, yet once you go into the building (The Source), it is the most hip place that I have ever been. Itís a shared space with restaurants, cheese shops, wine shops, etc. Very cool place to visit. The brewery is a nice open spot, lots of taps- though most of them are empty. The extremely delicious quality of their beers makes up for the lack of quantity. This is a place that I will definitely return to!

Drove by the place originally not realizing it was located inside The Source. The Source is some type of hipster industrial farmers market built inside an old brick building. I really liked the style of the entire place and the brewery fit the style well with the stainless steel brewing equipment exposed matching the stainless throughout the building. Not many beers on tap, but they were all so fantastic. Great saisons and sours each with a good use of Brett and oak. Service was friendly and attentive. No food offered at the brewery, but there are good food choices elsewhere in the building. Overall a really cool place that Iíd like to visit again.

First visited the Source during GABF week with brokensail and t0rin0. During that week, it was hard to swing my 2" dick without hitting a dozen beer bros. While it still gets pretty busy, it has been a bit more calm since then. Housed in an old factory or building of some sort, this joint is a total yuppie magnet (which I guess is good and bad). Lots of tap offerings, albeit at pretty high prices (some glasses @ $10 a pour). Enjoy coming here but probably canít afford to get totally white boy wasted here too often. Definitely worth a visit if youíre in town.

Really in an out of the way place. Apparently all the Denver yuppies hang out at the source. High end coffee, high end food, and a high end wine shop there. Yeah I want some French wines. Not. Very clean tap room though. Not real big and a little on the cold side I though. No real ambiance. L shaped bar and some tables.
Service was very good and server was very knowledgeable. Quite attentive. Beers were excellent. had Origins, Brett díOr, and two of the saisonís. Good beers. Prices were good but on the higher end of the scale.
Liked it but not big on the metallic feel

Visited on a Wednesday evening. Looks like a haunted factory as you pull up to the dirt parking lot. Inside is a half done feeling renovation, with a large communal room that featured two restaurants, a small market, a butcher shop, a wine and liquor store and in the back right hand corner, the Crooked Stave tasting room (and brewery). The crowd in the tasting room (and The Source at large) was trendy folks for a night out. The layout of the tasting room is an L shaped bar with tables scattered throughout the spare room. 4 beers on draft, about the same number available via bottle. Expensive, though served in beautiful glassware. Service was a tad slow, and the design of the bar led to a crowded ordering spot, even though the place was less than half full. Certainly a nicer room versus the last location, though somehow the vibe and selection seemed far less. If you love Crooked Stave beer, worth hitting.

Visited: 10-12-13 (during GABF Week)
Ambiance: The new place is ....small? The bar can hold about 12-15 people and there are several tables spread throughout. Half of the space is for patrons, the other half is for several tanks.
Service: The bartenders were busy but prompt and took the time to explain the beers when needed.
Selection: They had 10 different beers on tap and bottles for sale. PLus, they still had leftover bottles from their Origins release and L Brett dOr release earlier in the week.
Value: Better quality beers definitely cost more, par for the course.
Overall, a nice place and will definitely return when back in town but still couldnít over how small it was.

The Source as a whole is a cool spot; very much a trendy spot right now. Bartenders were attentive but didnít know much about the beer (donít ask questions like what Brett strain). Beer is amazing though as is thefoid at the restaraunts in The Source.

Let me preface this by saying that this is certainly much better than the setup they had in the barrel cellar - the area is not any better, but the space is - let me break down for you the space called the source and the cs place within it - The Source is basically an indoor yuppie food court - want a 12 dollar jar of pickles? - theyíve got that - 5 dollar croissant? Inexplicably expensive coffee? - that too - there was a Bentley parked out front when I got there - yea, itís that kind of place - picture a bunch of crunchy 20-somethings with liberal arts degrees selling handmade food products to people with too much fucking money - within that, you have the new space for Crooked Stave - larger and much more homey than the barrel cellar was - their tap list seems to have settled in to the standard they set at the barrel cellar (mostly regulars - vielle, surette, a few variations of Hop Savant and/or St. Bretta - plus a special release of two) - prices seem to keep getting more expensive, especially for the special releases - 10 bucks for a 12 ounce is not uncommon for those - sorry, but that is becoming cost-prohibitive for me, especially considering the consistency of the products offered (sometimes quite good, sometimes pretty bad) - sorry, but I canít afford such an expensive roll of the dice too often - I think Iím getting too old and/or cheap to enjoy places like this - Iím done, but if youíve got the money, good for you - have fun here blowing your disposable income, upper-middle-class white people.
