Crooked Stave Brewery
Founded in Denver, Colorado in late 2010, Crooked Stave is the product of “Brettanomyces Guru” Chad Yakobson’s open source Master’s research, The Brettanomyces Project. Crooked Stave’s progressive brewing approach blends science and art through creativity and passion. The resulting creations, most of which use Brettanomyces yeasts and mature in oak, are beers of extraordinary complexity.
Crooked Stave is a play on the word Stave – one of many strong wooden slats collectively bound together by metal hoops to shape a wooden barrel. Our name is a commitment to how closely we work with each barrel and embodies the love we put into each beer. Wooden barrels are the focal point of our brewery and the beers we brew. We are Crooked Stave by way of origin: unique in our beginnings and set apart from our peers. We set our own path, releasing specialty Brettanomyces-only, wild, sour, and barrel-aged beers.
