Our Team

Brewing award winning craft beer since 1994

Using pure Rocky Mountain snow melt, the finest malted barley, high quality hops and our exclusive strains of yeast, our beers have consistently won awards from around the globe.  Now being sold in 10 states, one taste and you'll know why our growth continues to be sure and steady.

TKB is dedicated to our community and the environment. We partner with local organizations to raise money for great causes and promote local industry.  We're also a "green" brewery employing a comprehensive recycling program and utilizing renewable energy.

We just might be the most awarded brewery you've never heard of.  But that's okay with us because we've never been about the fads.  Instead, we focus on making great, drinkable ales and lagers that stand the test of time.

Our Mission



For more than 20 years, Tommyknocker Brewery has been passionately crafting award winning ales and lagers.  TKB has been awarded over 100 medals from a multitude of local, national and international competitions, including 17 GABF medals.
