I loved my trip to Crooked Stave. I was only in Denver for a short time and it was close to unanimous from local BAs that Crooked Stave was the place to go if you could only go to one of the many great breweries in the Denver area. After trying their beers and thinking most of them were great, I was surprised at how slow it was in the tasting room on a Saturday night. From my tourist perspective, it did not seem like the brewery was in the best Denver neighborhood, but like a lot of small breweries it was located in an industrial park with plenty of parking, which is great for someone new to the area. The tasting room had a typical set up with a small L-shaped bar and about three or four tables. I would think it would get pretty crowded, when they get busy. Both of the guys working the bar when we were there were great! They were very friendly and when we told them we were from Austin, we started sharing stories about the Austin beer and live music scenes. My only complaint was they didn't offer more variety. They had six beers on tap and three beers for sale in bottles. I wished I could have tried more of their stuff, because everything I had was good to great. I highly recommend stopping in here for any BAs visiting the Denver area. (1,254 characters)

Only complaint is that only 1 guy was working with over 20-25 patrons. Great selection and lots of bottles to go. Over 20 taps and good prices in my opinion. A must visit for the denver are (189 characters)

Interesting setup with the taproom in the back of a shared commercial space, in an adaptive reused warehouse; pretty damn progressive but it fits the brewery. Servers were knowledgable, friendly and fast. Great selection of the usual, renowned suspects as well as limited (or infused and/or barrel aged) brews. Great to have choice to buy smaller individual pours. Batch 50, Hop Savant and red wine barrel Nightmare were outstanding. Lots of seating, but no patio, and the non-high-top chairs are pretty small. Also saw a schwasty guy in a Packers jacket fall over (he was fine), so lovely entertainment to boot. Very diverse crowd - good to see! (646 characters)

Wasn't sure walking into this building that I was going to like the taproom. Taproom is at the far corner of the building so I walked around looking a little lost at first.

The servers were super friendly and helpful. The selection was a good mix of their mainstays and limited stuff.

Beers were awesome and as a bonus I saw a guy in a Jack Daniels jean jacket fall off his bar stool, so great all around. (409 characters)
