Former Future Brewing, open only since February 2014, has already drawn acclaim for its tasty beers and its historic brewing methods. That dedication to traditional pedigree can be witnessed in the brewery’s Black Project, which focuses on sours. But these aren’t just any sours: freshly made wort (the name for pre-fermented beer) is left open to the air to be inoculated with the wild yeasts and bacteria that surround Denver. Think of it as beer’s version of terroir.
