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.

On tap at Lost Abbey. Golden-yellow in color with a one-finger white head. The aroma has cucumber, carrot, and greens. This is weird. Cucumber and carrot. The flavor is a lot like a garden salad. Cucumber dominates along with carrot and herbs. Some salad greens, maybe romaine lettuce. Not much else. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. Oddly refreshing actually. Unique at least.

Draft at GABF. This was an odd beer. Pours a nice looking gold with a fluffy head, fine bubbles. Nose is peculiar. Odd mix of floral, licorice & mint with a malty backbone. On tasting, it’s more of this mishmash. Earthy and dry, but the spices really clash with one another. Not my bag.

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.

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.

On tap at Avery - poured a golden yellow with a minimal head. Nose is like a vegetable garden. Taste of yeasts, cabbage, lemongrass. cucumber and wood. Slightly drying finish. A bit strange, but still okay..
