1401 Miner Street, Idaho Springs, CO, 80452

Tommyknocker Brewing’s name stems from the town’s mining background—after gold was discovered in 1859, the Argo mine supplied the Denver mint with half its gold needs. The Cornish miners who worked here were firm believers in pixies called Tommyknockers who lived in the mines and could bring good luck and protection.
