A Note on This Beer
Sour-style enthusiasts across the nation pine for Crooked Stave. The beer pros at Westword Magazine regularly call out their tart and tangy creations as some of the best Colorado has to offer. While Paste Mag named the brewery one of the Top 50 in America of the past decade!
Of course, owner Chad Yakobson has been honing his Sour mastery since the early days. He even wrote his Masters thesis on brettanomyces while at Scotland’s acclaimed Institute of Brewing & Distilling.
His expertise shines brilliantly in today’s Stay the Funk In. Chad and his team brewed this delectable Lambic in the “Méthode Traditionnelle,” a time intensive technique from Belgium that took over two years to achieve!
Without adding any fruit or flavorings, the brewers aged the spontaneously fermented beer in oak barrels, then transferred it to bottles in 2018 for a second fermentation and conditioning.
The exquisite results contain whispers of tart nectarine and grapefruit, with more heavy-handed notes of earthy funk. Oaky spice with a faint sense of vanilla rounds out every complex sip!
The brew is both refreshing and relaxing, and at 6.3% ABV you can pop your feet up and sit back with it at home all day. It is called Stay the Funk In, after all.
*Crooked Stave only made 336 cases total of this funky beauty!
