Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project has announced its newest can release “Sour Rosé,” a 4.5% ABV wild ale fermented in oak barrels on second-use raspberries and blueberries. Sour Rosé will be available in the state of Colorado starting at the beginning of February.
Primary fermented with a mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria, Sour Rosé undergoes fermentation in large oak foeders on second-use raspberries and blueberries. Showcasing bright effervescent characteristics, Sour Rosé is the perfect sour beer for all seasons and occasions. Unfiltered and naturally wild, each can is packaged with a small amount of yeast to maintain maximum freshness for wherever life’s adventures take you.
“Releasing a traditional sour beer in a can that primary ferments in oak upwards of 4 months before being packaged, marks a new chapter for the brewery as a leader in the creation of wild and sour beers,” said Crooked Stave Owner and Brewmaster Chad Yakobson. “As the first brewery to release a 100% oak-aged sour beer in cans, we are continuing to grow upon our commitment of educating consumers about Brettanomyces by putting these beers into consumer-friendly packaging at a reasonable price point.”
Sour Rosé six-packs can be purchased in the Crooked Stave tasting room on Brighton Blvd starting Friday, February 2nd, 2018 and throughout the state of Colorado starting Monday, February 5th, 2018.
Founded in Denver, CO in late 2010 as an artisan beer project, Crooked Stave is the culmination of brewmaster and “Brettanomyces Guru” Chad Yakobson’s open source Master’s research, The Brettanomyces Project. Crooked Stave’s progressive approach to brewing blends science and art through creativity and passion. The resulting creations, most of which use Brettanomyces yeasts and mature in oak, are beers of extraordinary complexity.
