Crooked Stave Returns to Fort Collins with New Taproom
Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project the Denver-based Sour and Brett brewery has returned to where it all started and opened a new 3,000 square ft. taproom in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Founded in 2010 by Chad Yakobson, a Colorado State University graduate, Crooked Stave began in Fort Collins as a contract operation. In 2012 Yakobson relocated to Denver where he was able to open his own brewing facility.
But according to the Coloradoan Yakobson, who has several family members in the Fort Collins area, and sits on the CSU fermentation science program board, never gave up on the idea of returning someday…
“We had a very fascinating beginning up here, but we never had a place to call our own…Now we have a place where we can connect with the community.”
Located in Fort Collins’ vibrant The Exchange development, Crooked Stave’s new taproom features 20 taps, most of them full of barrel-aged wild and sour beers and seating for 80.
And while Crooked Stave will continue to do the bulk of its brewing in Denver, Yakobson will reportedly “begin fermenting in wooden barrels and adding a pilot brewery system to his Fort Collins operation in the coming months.
