Crazy Mountain Brewing Company
Kevin and Marisa Selvy made the decision to leave San Francisco to start a Colorado brewery while kicking back with (of course) a couple of beers. The move might have seemed a little, well, crazy at the time, but it’s more than paid off. These days, Crazy Mountain Brewing Company distributes its beers to more than 10 states, plus international markets such as Hong Kong.
Said libations—including eight year-round varieties, plus seasonal and Brewers’ Reserve releases—also flow from 10 taps inside Crazy Mountain’s dog-friendly tasting room. Here, pints, pitchers, and tasting flights hold everything from the five-malted Horseshoes & Hand Grenades ESB to the wheaty Old Soul Strong Belgian Golden Ale. To complement pours, an outdoor food truck dubbed the Crazy Wagon serves a weekly rotating menu of global comfort food, including Korean-style short-rib tacos and gourmet grilled cheese. The brewery also hosts events such as live music and free yoga classes that allow students to sweat out all the hops they just drank.
