Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project is a Denver brewery that has made quite the name for itself brewing wild and unique beers.
Head brewer, Chad Yakobson, is a particular fan of using Brettanomyces yeast strains to craft an eclectic range of wild ales with a distinctive new world twist.
Until now, kegs of Crooked Stave beers haven't been available in Australia, but that looks set to change. On July 28 and 29, Sydney's Bitter Phew will have the brewery's beers pouring across its taps, giving drinkers a taste of what's causing them to make such a stir Stateside.
