A new can coming from Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project next month should sound familiar to long time fans.
The Denver-based brewery will be packaging its Sour Rosé in cans. Sour Rosé is a 4.5 percent ABV wild ale that has been fermented in oak and conditioned on second-use blueberries and raspberries. Crooked Stave has previously released the same beer in 375ml bottles under the name of Petite Sour Rosé.
“Releasing a traditional sour beer in a can that primary ferments in oak upwards of four months before being packaged, marks a new chapter for the brewery as a leader in the creation of wild and sour beers,” said Chad Yakobson, owner and brewmaster at Crooked Stave, in a press release. “As the first brewery to release a 100 percent 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.”
According to a press release, the newest version of Sour Rosé will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce cans that are scheduled to be released at Crooked Stave’s tasting room on Feb. 2.
In addition, the cans will be shipped to retailers throughout the state of Colorado starting on Feb. 5.
