Less than six months after expanding into the previous World of Beer locations in Denver’s Belmar and Cherry Creek neighborhoods, Crazy Mountain Brewing Co. announced that it has closed its original location in Edwards.
The reason? Crazy Mountain plans to build a bigger, better brewhouse and taproom in Eagle County this summer.
Since opening in 2010, Crazy Mountain has called the Vail Valley its home and although the company has since expanded into the booming Denver market, Crazy Mountain has no plans to move its headquarters out of Eagle County.
“While it’s bittersweet to be leaving our first home in Edwards, where we made history by being the first production brewery in the county, we’re very excited about the opportunities that our growth has created,” said Kevin Selvy, founder and owner of Crazy Mountain. “Being able to stay in the Valley, while having space to continue that growth and expansion, is extremely important to us.”
With Crazy Mountain’s recent expansion, the company had been using its original Edwards brewhouse to produce only its Local’s Stash Reserve Series. The rest of Crazy Mountain’s beer is produced at its Denver location, 471 Kalamath St. The brewery aims to resume the Local’s Stash Reserve Series production in Eagle County, as soon as the new location gets up and running.
“We can’t wait to open our new home, and share it with everyone who has supported us throughout the years,” Selvy said. “It’s going to be that larger, more versatile space we desperately need, but equally as important – it will be a fantastic addition to our community.”
This leaves Crazy Mountain with three current Colorado locations and an additional two on the way. You can currently get Crazy at their Denver location, in Belmar at 720 W. Alaska Dr., or Cherry Creek at 660 S. Colorado Blvd. The company also has a soon-to-open taproom in the Village at Winter Park and hopes to have their new Eagle County location open sometime this summer.
