The scoop: Cannonball Creek was founded in January 2013 by Jason Stengl and Brian Hutchinson. The brewery got it’s name from the original name of Golden’s Clear Creek: Cannonball Creek. The brewmasters offer several creative beers, including one called “Fruit of the Quail” and another named “Trump Hands IPA”.
