Crabtree Brewing Company is a regional brewery located in Greeley, Colorado. Jeff and Stephanie Crabtree, the founders, started brewing in 2006 after they decided to turn their homebrewing hobby into a commercial endeavor. In 2009, the brewery produced over 900 barrels of its various labels. As of 2011, it was still Greeley's only brewery.
Crabtree has certain "classic" beers available year round:
- Jeff's Pale Ale, a pale ale
- Twisted Creek Wheat, an unfiltered wheat beer styled after German hefeweizen.
- Boxcar Brown, a brown ale
- Ginger Bee, a blonde ale flavored with ginger
- Head Turner Blonde Ale, a floral blonde ale
- Serenity Amber Ale, an unfiltered amber ale
- Oatmeal Stout, a stout beer
They also brew various seasonal beers:
- Braggot, a braggot
- Golden 8, a Belgian strong pale ale
- Dearfield Ale, an ale commemorating Dearfield, Colorado
- Others, including those flavored with seasonal fruit
- "5", a special Belgian abbey made with coriander, orange peel and fresh raisins and aged in wine barrels, to celebrate the brewery's fifth anniversary
The company logo is a play on words. Rather than feature a crabapple tree (also referred to as a crab tree), it depicts a crab in a tree. An animated version of the logo plays automatically on the front page of the company website, and appears as an Easter egg on all subsequent pages.
