Happy Monday, everybody! This week, Ryan and Alex are trying Sour Rosé by Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project. Founded in Denver, CO in late 2010, Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project is the culmination of brewmaster and “Brettanomyces Guru,” Chad Yakobson’s, open source Master’s Degree research, The Brettanomyces Project. Crooked Stave takes a 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. From their humble beginnings, they embraced creativity while always striving to make quality their focus. Today they are proud to say they work closely with many of the farmers and skilled craftsmen who produce the ingredients they regularly use. They periodically brew with Colorado floor malted barley as their base malt, they feature Colorado grown hops in various recipes and work meticulously with whole fruit and only whole fruit, most of which is grown in Colorado. This attention to detail and stewardship for the land produces beers of extraordinary quality and is unmistakable in everything they produce. Sour Rose has raspberry sourness upfront with a very distinct tartness, with notable flavors of blueberry, oak, and light wheat. This week on FDB - we're educated in the new qualifications of nannies, discover an immigrant raccoon, learn of a kid VERY impressed by orchestras, and more!
