Denver, CO — Crooked Stave has announced expanded distribution plans, partnering with Cavalier Distributing as their distributor for Ohio. Beginning the week of February 13, Cavalier will distribute draught versions of Crooked Stave’s beers including Von Pilsner, Rotational American IPA, Trellis Buster American Double IPA, Colorado Wildsage Saison, St. Bretta Saison, Hop Savant, barrel-aged provisions, barrel-aged blends, and wild ales, and cellar reserve releases.

“Cavalier has been a dedicated partner of our good friends and collaborators at Jackie O’s Brewery and is celebrating their 25th Anniversary of bringing great beer to Ohio. We believe our craft progressive beers are a perfect fit in their portfolio, says Crooked Stave’s Founder/Brewmaster Chad Yakobson.

Crooked Stave has developed a cult following since opening in Colorado in 2011, first in Fort Collins, and then in Denver. Wooden barrels are the focal point of the brewery and the beers they brew. They set their own path, by releasing specialty Brettanomyces-only, wild, sour, and barrel-aged beers.

About Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project
Founded in Denver, CO in late 2010 as an artisan beer project, Crooked Stave is the culmination of brewmaster and “Brettanomyces Guru” Chad Yakobson’s open source master’s research project, The Brettanomyces Project. Crooked Stave’s progressive approach to brewing 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. The brewery’s name is a commitment to how closely we work with each barrel, and embodies the love they put into each beer.
