Master Brewer Stephan Danckers and his partner Stuart Sheridan began nurturing the idea of The Crooked River Brewing Company in 1992. They wasted no time finding investors, forming the company and designing bottle labels. The real challenge was finding a home for the brewery. By 1993, arrangements were made to convert the old Scottish Tool and Die building at 1101 Center Street into the new 6000 barrel Crooked River microbrewery. If anyone was up for the challenge it was Brewmaster Stephan Danckers. His brewing credentials include a Masters degree in Brewing Science and technology from the University of California-Davis. Further, Danckers received a Fulbright Scholarship to Brewing Faculty at the University of Munich at Weihenstephan, Germany. In June 1994, Danckers began brewing the first test batches of beer in Crooked River's new 30-barrel brew kettle. He brewed 12 test batches of pale ale before finally settling on a suitable formula for the brewery's first brand, Crooked River ESB.
Today, Crooked River offers 6 year-round styles and five seasonal brands under the Crooked River name. The company also brews special house brands for Cleveland's Jacobs Field and Browns Stadium. Both of the Crooked River beers featured this month have won numerous awards including Silver Medals at both the 2000 Great American Beer Festival and Nittany Valley Brewer's Cup for the Porter and a rating of "Highly Recommended" for the Lager by the Beverage Testing Institute in both 1999 and 2000. We know you're going to enjoy them!
