Crooked Stave and Upslope unveil product of collaboration
Denver-based Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project and Boulder-based Upslope Brewing Company have unveiled the first instalment of Crooked Stave’s Ferus Fluxus series – Wild Belgian Pale Ale.
Batches of the Wild Belgian Pale Ale have been aging separately at both Upslope’s North Boulder brewery at Lee Hill and Crooked Stave’s Barrel Cellar for the last nine months, and will be available in two different package options. Crooked Stave’s version will be packaged in its standard 375ml bottle, while Upslope’s version of Ferus Fluxus will be packaged in Ball Corporation’s 19.2 ounce Royal Pint can.
“This collaboration was a great opportunity to reunite with my friends at Upslope and make a unique beer,” says Crooked Stave’s Head of Sales and former Upslope employee Kyle Krebsbach. “I have always thought our yeast would pair well with Upslope’s Belgian Style Pale Ale. Tasting the beer yesterday, I loved the crisp floral and citrus flavors followed with a nice tart and earthy finish.”
