After three years in business, Crooked Run is proud to announce a second location, featuring a 10 BBL brewhouse and tasting room!

My name is Jake Endres, co-owner and brewer at Crooked Run. I’ve been brewing beer since I turned 21. Over the years, I got more and more into homebrewing, and when I turned 25, I decided that I wanted to open a small brewery. I worked for the next year researching and developing the concept for Crooked Run.
To raise money, I made a project on Kickstarter, a crowd-sourcing website that allows people to donate money to ideas that they support. Thanks to a great group of people who donated, we succeeded in meeting and surpassing our goal.
We opened in July of 2013 with two beers, a Belgian single and an English pale ale. Since then, we’ve messed around with a lot of recipes, and had a chance to try pretty much everything, from barrel-aged beers to cask to spontaneous fermentation. In August, we announced our expansion, a second 10 BBL location opening in early 2017.
When it comes to brewing, I like to offer a nice mix of interesting beers like sour IPA and black tripel, along with classic styles. My personal goal is to be a good regional brewery and offer a friendly place to have a beer.
