Crooked Stave Petite Sour


Brewed by Crooked Stave
Denver, Colorado USA
Style: Sour/Wild Ale | Ratings: 80 | Alcohol: 4.5%
This beer is my current project with countless hours spent conceptualizing the process and design behind Petite Sour. While this is the "table version" of our Farmhouse ale "Surette", the process is a blend of brewing techniques from farmhouse breweries which use to span from Northern Germany to Northern France. Drawing inspiration from Berliner-weisse, Gose, Farmhouse Wit and Saison, Petite Sour is a true farmhouse beer. For this rendition I used a mixed culture of lacto and Brett to ferment a portion of the beer giving a cleaner acidity compared to the previous spontaneous batch. This batch of Petite Sour was again fermented and aged in our oak foeder as a blend of two beers. I’ll continue to tweak the recipe and process until this beer gets to…well, wherever our travels lead us
