Yikes: A pickup truck crashed into Comrade Brewing and they’ll have to stop brewing for a while

Some drove a pickup truck into Comrade Brewing on Thursday during business hours, but no one was hurt.

Someone drove a pickup truck into Comrade Brewing on Thursday during business hours, but no one was hurt.

The crash at the southeast Denver brewery broke the garage doors, ruptured gas and water lines and damaged beer tanks, according to Westword. As a result, they’ll have to get rid of a batch of Superpower IPA.

Owner David Lin told Westword that they’ll also have to stop brewing for a few weeks while repairs are made.

“We have a good amount of beer in the cellar right now, but we might have to cut back” on distributing kegs to bars and restaurants,” he said. “We can’t wash kegs, either, because the water line was damaged.”

It’s currently unclear what led to the crash.

Comrade Brewing’s taproom reopened yesterday.
