About CSA Distributing

CSA Distributing formed as a full state distributor for Crooked Stave Brewing Co. as the demand for the highest quality craft beer grew rapidly in Colorado. Founded in 2013, CSA has evolved into a craft beverage distributor with the purpose of developing honest relationships and representing the highest quality of International and American breweries, cideries, wineries, distilleries, and food producers. With a deep understanding of an evolving craft market and a close connection with the artisans themselves, CSA provides unrivaled distribution through sustainable business practices, genuine customer service, knowledge, and education-driven culture.

History of CSA Distributing


From the moment Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project materialized in 2011, we were both brewer and distributor. Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project is the culmination of Founder and Brewmaster Chad Yakobson’s open source Master’s research, The Brettanomyces Project – a dissertation on wild yeast fermentations – conducted at the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Yakobson, a Colorado native, set out to make a splash with wild and sour barrel-aged beers. The best way he knew how to get the brands into the Colorado beer scene was to go around and educate while hand selling every case, after every new release. Chad was responsible for every step of the process including opening new accounts and connecting with the craft brewing community. Through the same dedication to artisan products, we formed CSA Distributing knowing that there was an entire community of artisans, some we had already connected with and others we are still meeting, to whom we could give this same dedication and treatment.
