Funky Blender: Nectarine
Casey Brewing & Blending
A Note on This Beer
“This beer was worth the entire trip. Literally buckled my knees,” says Sour super-fan @Brent D. about visiting Colorado’s Casey Brewing & Blending. “Nectarine is the perfect fruit for what Casey does.”
If you haven’t been to Casey, you really should! This scenic haven for Sours and Wild Ales rests right in the mountain valley town of Glenwood Springs, nestled nicely along the crystal clear Roaring Fork River. The only thing more gorgeous are the rivers of tart, funky Ale that flow from Casey’s taproom!
But, until you’re ready to take a trip to the massive 4.36 UT-rated brewery with hundreds of delicious, fruity brews to its name, we’ve got the next best thing — Casey delivered right to your door!
Today’s beer is an extraordinary example of this Farmhouse expert’s finesse!
The crew at Casey started by fermenting the Ale in oak with a custom mix of cultures for a funky base. Then, they aged it in vintage oak wine barrels for a tart, dry Wild Ale. Next, they aged the Ale with whole, ripe Colorado nectarines before finally bottle conditioning with some sugar and yeast for natural carbonation.
The result is a mouth-puckering swig of subtle funk and enormous mouthfuls of nectarine juice, all flowing into an invigorating, snappy finish.
It’s not just Brent — Glenwood locals are glowing about this luscious brew!

Blast of tart nectarine at first, followed by sweet, farmhouse notes, then the nectarine returns, chewy and subtle, like the whole fruit would be. Finality fades dry and funky, lingering with nectarine.
Tang! Nectarines abound in this puckerfest. Has a really pleasant dry coat on the finish.
