STARGATE: Peach Rye Whiskey begins as a custom blend of 8-10 month old golden sour base. 100% wild-caught microbes are used to referment Cresthaven peaches from Palisade, Colorado. Refermentation and subsequent aging took place in fresh A.D. Laws Secale straight rye whiskey barrels. I find that the delicious, fresh peach plays wonderfully with the delicate apricot notes produced by our native yeast. Moderate acidity is backed by subtle hints of deep, fruit-forward rye whiskey and oak vanillin. This beer will develop in the bottle for years, however much of the fruit flavor will diminish or change, so we recommend enjoying at least one bottle fresh if you do intend to cellar. 

STARGATE: Italian Plum Rum begins as a custom blend of 8-10 month old golden sour base. 100% wild-caught microbes are used to referment Italian plums from Palisade, Colorado. Refermentation and subsequent aging took place in a fresh A.D. Laws Rum barrel. A bright red color is the visual backdrop for lively plum and berry flavors and aromas. These combine with subtle sweetness, and tropical fruit notes from the barrel to create a beer that equal parts complex and drinkable. The base beer lends a complementary acidity and mild brettanomyces funk. This beer will develop in the bottle for years, however much of the fruit flavor will diminish or change, so we recommend enjoying at least one bottle fresh if you do intend to cellar. 

STARGATE: Elephant Heart Plums and Pluots
begins as a custom blend of 8-10 month old golden sour base. 100% wild-caught microbes are used to referment a mix of Elephant Heart Plums and Pluots from Palisade, Colorado. Refermentation and subsequent aging took place in a fresh A.D. Laws Rum barrel. This intense pink-purple beer has notes of cherry, berry, plum, and stone fruit. The extremely juicy beer accentuates the tropical fruit notes and vanillin from the barrel. The base beer lends a complementary acidity for balance as well as a hint of traditional funk from our wild-caught yeast. This beer will develop in the bottle for years, however much of the fruit flavor will diminish or change, so we recommend enjoying at least one bottle fresh if you do intend to cellar. 

STARGATE ² (squared): Peach Rye Whiskey is our base STARGATE with more age, more peaches, and higher alcohol. During the release, we discovered a significant issue with some bottles of Stargate over carbonating. To solve the problem, we opened all over carbonated bottles, then added more peaches to referment, and then re-bottled each bottle. 

It is our take on the Oude Gueuze Tilquin à L'Ancienne process and is a tribute to Pierre Tilquin and his dedication to perfection. In 2014, Tilquin experienced a similar issue with Oude Gueuze Tilquin à L'Ancienne, a gueuze that was blended with wort from Boon, Lindemans, Girardin, and Cantillon. Their solution was to open all 10,000 bottles into oak barrels and referment the beer. The final product became a higher alcohol 7.6% Lambic with a more subtle, softer, and complex character than the original. It is from their experience that we decided to do the same with STARGATE.
