COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A distinct 5.5% ABV session-lager brewed with elemental, native terroir from the following collective of brewers: Sierra Nevada (wild rice, beets, cucumber, mint and carrots), Avery (Colorado alfalfa honey), Allagash (Maine purple potatoes), Dogfish Head (free-range Atlantic Ocean “beach” wood), and Lost Abbey (cage-free Pacific Ocean “beach” wood). Born out of a backroom conversation in a Boulder restaurant and blooming into a full-blown cornucopia of a collaboration, Repoterroir is a coming together of like-minded craft beer compatriots. Brewed at Sierra Nevada’s brewery in Chico, CA this sessionable lager beer reclaims the earthbound mantle of terroir from the grape-soaked, buttoned-down world of wine and re-purposes it in a new sudsy sense. Featuring natural ingredients contributed by each of the five breweries, this unique and earthy beer is complex and layered but ultimately drinkable. Using the full repertoire of skills from more than 86 combined years of brewing knowledge and skill, this lager combines traditional (and not so traditional) ingredients into an ideal summertime brew.

Tasted at Lost Abbey on tap. Clear golden in color with a thin white head. Stick your nose in this beer and you feel like you are at the beach on a windy day. Pronounced beach wood aromas flow. Smells more like Atlantic wood to me. Light bodied brew but flavors were quite complex that melded well together. Flavors were of honey, mint, earthiness, and grass. The finish is not sweet and some what dry. Very tasty unique beer.

Pours very slightly hazy straw yellow with white head on tap at Avery. Very interesting aroma with some herbal notes of mint, dill, rosemary, sage, some ginger, touch of other vegetal and very slight honey notes. Weird, and the taste isn’t much better, with a weird herbal minty quality, some slight ginger, some biscuit notes, maybe a touch of honey, but really dominated by a very odd herbal and ginger combination.

Tap @ Avery. Clear golden yellow appearance with a white head. Ginger, herbal, minty aroma. Pretty herbal, ginger, minty, light honey, light malty flavor. Easy drinking but nothing too exciting. Meh.

On tap at Avery Tasting Room poured a clear cold with a smal lingering white head. Aromas of straw, dill weed and light citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, dill weed, light citrus and a hint of earthiness with a crisp dry lingering dill finish.

At lost abbey. Pale gold pour. Aroma is cucumber salad which is insane. Taste is crisp and clean and heavily cucumber with slight vinegar to it. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Draft at the Lost Abbey tasting room. Clear pale yellow pour with a small white head, very pissy looking. Grain, carrot, beet, vegetable garden, definite mint bouncing around in the background, and earthy. Unique for sure, but a taster glass of it is enough for me.
