Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau (2π) releases July 15th. A special collaboration with Hawkshead Brewery based in the United Kingdom.
Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau (2π) is part of the Tran-Atlantic Rainbow Project, a series that challenges brewers to brew a beer inspired by a color. To create Key Lime Tau, the brewery created a mixed culture fermentation wild ale, aged in oak with lactose, fresh lime peel, and lemongrass.
“Key Lime Tau is a riff on a friend of ours’ beer Limoncello. We decided to put our own spin on a Limoncello and it came out very much like a Key Lime Pie,” said Yakobson. “We chose to call this beer Key Lime Tau as ‘tau’ is mathematically 2π and since the collaboration was brewed at both Hawkshead and Crooked Stave, two versions exist making it two Pies.”
Crooked Stave Key Lime Tau (2π) will be available in their taproom at 3350 Brighton Blvd at 6 pm on July 15th.
Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Lemongrass, Lime Peel, Lactose. Oak Aged)
