Join us this week for Part One as we get a bit strange with Tim Myers of Strange Craft Beer Company. A veteran in the Denver craft beer scene, Tim was one of the first to open a taproom only brewery and definitely one of the few to share his taproom with another brewery. Originally started as Strange Brewing, Strange Craft has grown into one of Denver’s best loved, off-the-beaten-path breweries. Disclaimer: No mice were harmed in the filming of this video. Here’s to keeping it strange.
