A Note on This Beer
If you ever want to taste some of the country’s juiciest and sweetest peaches fresh off the farm, go to Colorado.
Yes, Colorado: the state that hosts the largest peach festival west of the Mississippi. Folks from all over gather to walk through peach orchards, compete in peach-eating contests, and take part in the “Just Peachy” 5K. It’s really quite something.
Or, you could skip all that and grab a bottle of today’s massive 4.37 UT rated STARGATE: Glo Haven Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sour Ale.
It’s loaded with over 4lbs of whole, farm-fresh Colorado peaches in every barrel, so you don’t even have to trek to Colorado for a taste! That’s precious time you can spend drinking today’s beer and getting acquainted with the masters at Black Project!
These guys are brand-spankin’ new to Tavour, and if they’re not already on your bucket list, it’s because their small-batch brews rarely leave Denver. They’ve spent the last 5 years perfecting their craft and winning fans with their unique blend of funky Colorado terroir and palate-busting fruit flavors.
The result? A pantry full of GABF medals; a spot as one of Craft Beer & Brewing’s Top Breweries of 2017; a higher brewery rating than their Texas counterparts at Jester King; and beers that are so in-demand, they regularly sell out within 2 hours of release.
And all of that hype, acclaim, and expertise can be experienced in every sip of STARGATE.
Pop the top, and the aroma is like walking through miles of Colorado peach orchards at the peak of harvest. Layers of apricot, nectarine, and tart peach dance on the palate, giving way to hints of earthy funk. 6 months of Bourbon Barrel-Aging injects STARGATE with hints of vanilla and woody depth that mingle around the 6.9% ABV.
Wild-caught Colorado cultures build upon the fruity backbone, releasing notes of tangy peach skin onto the tastebuds and finishing crisp and dry.
Grab an extra bottle of STARGATE and introduce your friends to these Denver Sour masters. But make sure to grab ‘em fast — Black Project is already making waves in the Sour scene, and I’ll bet once our members get a taste, they’ll blow up bigger than a stick o’ dynamite in a 4lb barrel of peaches.
