Denver's masters of
wild and sour ales
Crooked Stave @ The Source0
Why locals love it
The mantra of Crooked Stave and its cultish following is simple: "Brettanomyces!" If this is new vocabulary for you, and you're a fan of unusual beers, be prepared to have your world shaken. If this is already your personal mantra also, welcome to your home away from home in Denver.
Why you should visit it
Crooked Stave's new taproom is one of the main attractions of the stylish urban-industrial Source Market. The new digs offer mastermind Chad Yakobson opportunites to expand CS's repetoire, which includes wild, funky and sour ales flavored with kumquats, blueberries, rhubarb and a slew of other experimental ingredients.
Choose tasters over full pours- that way you can sample more of the exceptional brews. Besides, some are so pungent more than a few sips is overkill.
