Leave well enough alone, right? We love our Free Verse. But we thought that it would be interesting to try out a new spin on our flagship India Pale Ale.

So one day we diverted regular Free Verse wort to a different fermentation vessel, where it was fermented solely with a strain of Brettanomyces isolated from a respected Belgian Lambic producer. As opposed to the ale yeast used to ferment traditional Free Verse, this Brett fermentation showcases distinct pineapple and overripe mango flavors with a touch of tropical funk.

The beer received the standard Free Verse dry-hopping treatment in order to maximize hop aroma. Bottle conditioning provides Brett Free Verse with a soft, natural carbonation and deeply nuanced flavors.

Join us starting at Noon on Saturday, June 9th to enjoy this wild take on our flagship India Pale Ale. Draft will be available to enjoy in the taproom and 500 ml bottles will be available for takeaway purchase.
