Crooked Stave – Nightmare on Brett

Crooked Stave  (Denver, CO) will hold a special limited release of Nightmare on Brett aged in Leopold Brothers Apple Whiskey Barrels at its taproom (3350 Brighton Blvd) on Wednesday, July 8th at 6:00 p.m. MST. The release will be taproom-only and bottles will not hit distribution.

Crooked Stave has previously only conditioned one other beer in Leopold Brothers Apple Whiskey Barrels.

“Nightmare is brewed to stand up to extended barrel aging and intense flavors that come along with many months in oak,” said Chad Yakobson, Crooked Stave Owner / Head Brewer.  “The Apple Whiskey barrels are special in that they deliver a slight red apple sweetness to back up the robust cacao and sour notes. Leopold Brothers is one of the most talented distilleries in the country, and we are lucky to be able to showcase the great work they do in combination with our passion for barrel aging.”

 

Nightmare on Brett aged in Apple Whiskey Barrels (9.666% ABV) marks another specialty batch release of the brewery’s barrel aged Dark Sour Ale. Crooked Stave aged its Dark base beer in Apple Whiskey Barrels from Leopold Brothers for nearly 22 months with the brewery’s mixed culture of Brettanomyces yeast and bacteria.

About Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

Crooked Stave is the culmination of “Founder and Brettanomyces Guru” Chad Yakobson’s open source Master’s research, The Brettanomyces Project. Crooked Stave’s progressive approach to brewing blends science and art through creativity and passion. The artistic creations, all of which use Brettanomyces yeast and mature in oak, result in beers of extraordinary complexity.
