Pints for Prostates Presents Denver Rare Beer Tasting

October 6, 2017 from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm (VIP begins at 12:00 pm)


More than 60 of America’s leading craft breweries have agreed to take part in the ninth annual Denver Rare Beer Tasting to raise funds for the Pints for Prostates campaign. Brewed Food and Good Bugs breweries will host a curated section within the grand tasting with food fermentations utilizing yeast profiles found in each collaboration beer. Taste beers from Great Divide, Fremont, Black Project, Rhinegeist, River North and Against the Grain. For more information,  please visit PintsforProstatesRareBeers.com

It’s common place to read all about hops and grains in the tasting notes of a beer. In fact, it’s celebrated as the primary contributors to a beer’s identity. As much as we agree that these are ingredients to be celebrated, we believe that there are a community of “Good Bugs” that deserve their dues as well.

We launched this fermentation series to spark a dialogue about yeast and bacteria as culinary ingredients. That they play a vital role in not only the fermentation of both beer and food, but that they bring such dynamic flavor expressions to everything they touch. It’s our hope to one day see tasting notes that bring attention to Baron, Conan, Brett Brux, Brevis, Delbrueckii, and the myriad of flavors they (and countless other yeast/bacteria strains) contribute to these brews. Not to mention the vast microverse of spontaneous and mix-culture fermentation.

Our co-conspirators and yeast gurus at Denver’s own Inland Island Yeast Laboratories are working hard to bring the very best strains of yeast, bacteria, and mix-culture therein to the craft brewing industry. These efforts are also building towards the development of strains specifically designed to be used by chefs in fermentations from kimchi to miso to sauerkraut. Brewed Food presents the GOOD BUGS FERMENTATION SERIES!

We look forward to enjoying the spirit of Brewed Food with you. You can get in touch with us through the form below.
