Some breweries might be winding down for the holidays, but Crooked Stave is not done with 2014 yet.
The Denver, Colo.-based brewery has announced it will be releasing seven beers in bottles at the Crooked Stave Taproom starting tomorrow and ending on Dec. 17.
“We’ve been busy at Crooked Stave, brewing capacity has been steady and we’ve been brewing a lot of beers destined for barrels,” said Chad Yakobson, Crooked Stave founder, in a press release. “We are excited to release a collection of barrel-aged sour beers we’ve been working on over the past year. This is just the beginning of many specialty barrel-aged sour beers we plan to continue releasing on a regular basis.”
Crooked Stave has only announced the names, brief descriptions and release dates of the beer so far. All seven beers have previously been released before.
