Crooked Stave W.W.B.B. 7.3% A.B.V.
As fast as I watched W.W.B.B. hit the shelves, it was gone. The secret is out, and the beers produced by Crooked Stave have become some of the most coveted brews around town. Brett Blue pours pitch black with a delicate beige head. The nose is complex with brilliant earthyness, notes of blue spruce, citrus, cocoa, and just a touch of brett. The mouth feel really blew me away. It has a subtle hoppyness at first that gives way to blue spruce, subtle notes of pepper, coffee, and a pleasantly dry finish. Grab what you can now, drink one fresh, and let a few sit. This bad boy is only going to get better with age!
