Crooked Stave launches Sour Rosé in cans
Six-packs now available in Colorado
Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project announced its newest can release: Sour Rosé, a 4.5 percent-alcohol by-volume wild ale fermented in oak barrels on second-use raspberries and blueberries. Unfiltered and naturally wild, each can of Sour Rosé is packaged with a small amount of yeast to maintain maximum freshness, the company says. “Releasing a traditional sour beer in a can that primarily ferments in oak upwards of four months before being packaged marks a new chapter for the brewery as a leader in the creation of wild and sour beers,” said Chad Yakobson, owner and brewmaster, in a statement. “As the first brewery to release a 100 percent oak-aged sour beer in cans, we are continuing to grow upon our commitment of educating consumers about Brettanomyces by putting these beers into consumer-friendly packaging at a reasonable price point.” Six-packs of 12-ounce cans of Sour Rosé now are available at the Crooked Stave tasting room and throughout Colorado.
