Editor’s Note: This in the first rendition of Tenemu’s beer-centric photo essays. As the bio below shows, Brooks Whittington has been shooting professionally for over two decades. Over time, we hope to capture the people, places and processes that are behind the craft beer we know and love.

The Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project first opened its doors in 2011 in Denver, Colo. Originally, it has a tap room at the brewery, but it quickly outgrew that location and opted to move the tap room into its own separate space. Unfortunately, Crooked Stave no longer offers tours at its brewing facility, but, the staff at the tap room was more than happy to show me around.

While there’s plenty that can be purchased, sadly growler fills are not available.
