This Week- Crooked Stave!

Brewery of the Month- Save $1 on 6pk

Founded in Denver, Colorado in late 2010, Crooked Stave is the product of “Brettanomyces Guru” Chad Yakobson’s open source Master’s research, The Brettanomyces Project. Crooked Stave’s progressive brewing approach 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.

Crooked Stave is a play on the word Stave – one of many strong wooden slats collectively bound together by metal hoops to shape a wooden barrel. Our name is a commitment to how closely we work with each barrel and embodies the love we put into each beer.

Wooden barrels are the focal point of our brewery and the beers we brew. We are Crooked Stave by way of origin: unique in our beginnings and set apart from our peers. We set our own path, releasing specialty Brettanomyces-only, wild, sour, and barrel-aged beers.

1. Sour Rosé Wild Ale Fermented in Oak with Raspberries and Blueberries

Primary fermented with our mixed culture of wild yeast, 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, we package each can with a small amount of yeast to maintain maximum freshness for wherever life’s adventures take you.

2. New Zealand Pilsner

5.4% ABV. A twist on the classic German style, this Pilsner is brewed and lightly dry hopped with the more fruity and tropical hops from New Zealand. Clean and crisp, yet expressive and unique.

3. Juicy East Coast IPA

This New England IPA pours a hazy yellow orange color with a medium foamy off white head. The nose is very citrusy with aromas of tangerine and lemon backed by dank resinous hops. The body and carbonation both sit at a medium level which is ideal for the style. The fruit notes on the palate turn a little sweeter more like a juicy orange. Citrusy and slightly grassy hops run throughout backed by some light grainy notes and there is a slight bitterness to the beer that off sets some of the sweetness nicely. Review by Dan Chacon

4. Juicy West Coast IPA

Built to showcase hop aroma and flavor, this juicy unfiltered American IPA is all about the hops. Dominated by citrus and tropical flavors from Amarillo, Azzaca, Mosaic and Motueka hops, this IPA remain smooth and easy drinking, making it a great beer for every day.
