Date/ Time: Saturday, February 1, from 12:00- 11:00 p.m..

This beer was quick soured with our house lactobacillus culture and fermented in stainless with a mixed culture of yeast and bacteria. It was aged on emergent green englemann spruce tips foraged from Southern Colorado.

This limited-release table sour celebrates the rebirth of a rare Colorado native, the Greenback Cutthroat Trout. Until recently, the true Greenback could only be found in Bear Creek, but aggressive recovery efforts are underway to put our state fish back into its native waters within the headwaters of the South Platte. Proceeds from each bottle will be put towards Greenback Cutthroat Trout projects by the Colorado-based non-profit Running Rivers. Learn more about the work they do at, lift your glass, and toast the hard work being done to Bring the Greenback!

$14 / 750 mL bottle. No limits.
