In the truest form of collaboration, we came together with Arizona Wilderness to brew a lager with barley grown and malted in each of our home states. After a primary fermentation in stainless steel with our house blend of lager yeast, we then transferred the lager into freshly emptied red wine barrels and pitched mixed cultures harvested from our respective environments and allowed it to rest in oak for five months. While the beer slumbered, it went through a multitude of changes transforming into a well-articulated brett forward crispy lager with murmurings of oak tannins. A final lagering, cold, in stainless for another month to keep it true to style and present it to you in its most honest essence.
