IMG_7120 (2).JPG


Brewed in collaboration with students from the Fermentation Science and Technology department at Colorado State University, this sour was an experiment with the students to determine the preferred method of pitching microbes: staggered or co-pitched. This beer was co-pitched with four different microbes, left to sour, then rested on peaches, leaving an intensely sour, slightly peachy reprieve from school.
