Denver-based Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project is working on another edition of the Petite Sour Series, this time featuring peaches from the western slopes of Colorado.
Petite Peach will come in at 4.5 percent ABV and like other beers in this series, packaged in 375ml bottles. In an email, Chad Jakobson, owner and brewmaster for Crooked Stave, told Tenemu, “Petite Sour Colorado Peach will be a seasonal release available from March thru August in 2017.”
According to Jakobson, Petite Peach is primary fermented with a mixed culture then undergoes secondary fermentation with whole fruits in oak foeders, and the malt is sourced from Leopold Brothers distillery in Denver. Petite Sours are then conditioned for months until they are ready for release.
“We have three other versions of Petite Sour that are available throughout the year, Petite Sour Raspberry, Petite Sour Blueberry and Petite Sour Rosè,” added Jakobson.
No less than 10 beers in the Petite Sour Series have been released thus far, including:
- Petite Sour Blueberry
- Petite Sour Boysenberry
- Petite Sour Grapefruit Radler
- Petite Sour Hibiscus & Cinnamon
- Petite Sour Passion Fruit
- Petite Sour Pure Guava
- Petite Sour Raspberry
- Petite Sour Rosé
- Petite Sour Sweet Cherry
- Petite Sour Tart Cherry
The petite sours are distributed to all of Crooked Stave’s distribution network, and are also available at the brewery for $8 each when they are released.
