Denver Westword Article

Denver Westword covered our move from Denver to Steamboat Springs.

Mythology Distillery, a concept that was inspired by a ski trip in Alaska, debuted in LoHi in 2018. “It was a crazy trip — unbelievable skiing and meeting a lot of interesting people,” recalls co-owner Scott Yeates. Every night, he and friends Scott Burg and Mike Zakhem bonded as they shared stories over whiskey, and they wanted to bring that experience home to Colorado.

After five years in business, the team decided to leave the Mile High (for now) and have made the move to Steamboat Springs, where they recently opened a new campus on 1.5 acres of land. “We reached a point that we had multiple production facilities in Denver, and we wanted to consolidate,” says Yeates, who, along with Burg, already lived in the mountain town.

The space, located at 2875 Elk River Road, was formerly Butcherknife Brewery. It has been converted into a 5,000-square-foot distillery as well as a restaurant and full bar serving cocktails, craft beer and boutique wines. A large outdoor space called the Whiskey Garden has a large central fire pit that was designed to be reminiscent of a campfire, Yeates notes.The outdoor area also has an additional bar that serves local craft beer, wine and batched cocktails on tap along with cornhole, plenty of seating, an area for live music and even a pair of slides.
