Colette is our homage to the saisons that Belgian farm workers have enjoyed for centuries. Brewed with barley, wheat and rice and fermented at high temperatures with a special blend of four different yeast strains, Colette is fruity and slightly tart, with a dry finish that makes it that rarest of treats — a beer as refreshing as it is complex.
Brewed in celebration of Lent and Easter season, Carnevale is light bodied Saison, using Brettanomyces along with Amarillo and Simcoe hops to generate flavor and depth. Carnevale’s complexity grows with time. The citrus notes tend to wane and the wild yeast rears its wonderfully tasting head.

Artisan ale brewed with fresh white sage and lemongrass Brewed with the backcountry in mind, Colorado WildSage displays a bright floral aroma, soft herbal notes, and a crisp Brettanomyces bite from primary fermentation and further conditioning with our mixed-yeast culture. Brewed with all Colorado ingredients in order to deliver a little bit of the high country to everyone who decides to share in this beer with us.
Paying homage to our favorite yeast, St. Bretta is fermented with our house mixed-culture of Brettanomyces. From its historic significance in old-world beers to this, the new age of Brett, we embrace this yeast as a focal point in our artisan brewery. A re-imagination of early farmhouse saisons brewed in Europe, St. Bretta combines fresh citrus characteristics with yeast-driven tropical fruit flavors and aromas. Unfiltered and naturally wild, we package each can with a small amount of yeast to maintain maximum freshness for wherever life's adventures take you.
This 2018 Ontario peach WPF variant is the reason that we had to bring in extra employees this past summer, and the culprit for our staff-wide carpal tunnel epidemic (we were dumb enough to de-pit and crush 3000ish lbs of fruit by hand). The good news is, the beers you suffer most through often turn out the best -- and this one is the bestest. Incredibly strong aromatics and flavours of fresh peach compliment an already delicious base beer. The carbonation remains front and centre, holding up the massive stonefruit notes with ease while allowing subtler brett notes to play in the background.
Prairie-vous Français is a celebration of simple elegance. This farmhouse ale is brewed to be refreshing. We use barley, oats, and wheat to build a foundation for Saaz hops and Brettanomyces bruxellensis to play. You'll find this beer to be slightly tart and a touch hoppy.
This barrel-aged wild ale is named for our San Francisco neighborhood and pays tribute to the Flanders Red style of beer. Aged in wine barrels, this lightly tart ale is brewed with California Rainier cherries using a house blend of wild yeasts, bacteria and SF sourdough yeast. Pair this complex ale with ripe figs & blue cheese or seafood bouillabaisse.
For this release in the Wood Werks series, we brewed up a base saison that is meant to tend towards the spicier side of the style. The addition of spelt and rye further accentuate this earthy/spicy component. We then laid the beer down in a mix of merlot and cabernet sauvignon barrels for ten months, which will round out the overall character of the beer. The final product will be bready, earthy, and spicy with a luxurious mouthfeel with a hint of vinous character and a splash of color from the wine.
A feeling overcomes, deriving of a most curious perplexity. A rich desire awakens to explore the contents of such delicate loveliness. Upon a deep connection with rounded lips, a bitter sweet complexity enters the soul…and so begins an amorous affair.
Heightened awareness envelopes the senses as the grandeur of such bold character develops. Caramel beauty exhibits itself, sprawling its full body widely upward, bubbling with excitement. Tantalizing effects of peppery bitterness grasps the tongue. Enchantment takes hold as a blanket of citrus slowly unfolds. As in any noteworthy love story, a subtle fruity sweetness of a rose emerges to the finish. A warm contentment grazes over, signifying a united marriage of balance and pleasure.
Fortitude has revealed itself to those who have encountered such an enriching experience. An experience so delectable, so defining, so unequivocal. An experience that is Love's Buzz.
