A Farmhouse Pale Ale, brewed in collaboration with Crooked Stave.

After long years of the beer community discussing hops to exhaustion, yeast is finally getting a glimpse of the spotlight following what seemed to be a lengthy Batman-like existence: outcast, living in the shadows, not getting enough credit for his work. However, the importance of fermentation is no news to Chad from Crooked Stave, a.k.a. the king of Hipsters, who has been fondling with various fermenting agents for longer than most people have been drinking. So it was that on a beautiful – yet excruciatingly hungover – Wednesday Mr Yakobsen came to Amager to bombard us simpletons with his knowledge on all things yeasty, and especially, bretty. Due to stubbornness from our end, we still insisted the brew carried a motherf#&@ of hops, despite intents of a brett forward beer. The answer to what ingredient won the battle lies within this bottle. But in our opinion, we are all winners.

Silly Sour is a unique brew that is 87% soured ale blended with 13% fresh saison. The delicate malt notes manage to break through the striking green apple sourness upfront and then give way to a finishing jolt of lactic sourness!

So, what did happen after two flamingos walked into a bar? A take on a modern Gose, Lemon-Lime Flamingo Fruit Fight is kettle soured with Lactobacillus (lacto for short) brewed with traditional (coriander, salt and wheat malt) and non-traditional (lemon and lime zest) ingredients. The addition of fruit compliments the spiciness and tartness.
