FORT COLLINS, CO— In the midst of CBC shenanigans and the second bomb cyclone, Peter Bouckaert of Purpose Brewing & Cellars has found a sixtel keg of pH1. This honey-colored soft sour was aged in the legendary pH1 barrel where it developed a beautiful complexity of its own. The last time the public was able to try this beer was for Purpose’s one-year anniversary last August.
The pH1 barrel itself has been on quite a journey. One of the original nine barrels from New Belgium’s sour beer program in 1998, Peter released these barrels, giving them homes at other breweries with each barrel providing a story to tell. pH1 traveled to Santa Rosa, CA., where it housed Russian River’s Beatification, was delivered back to New Belgium in 2014, and made its way to Rare Barrel in Berkeley, CA where the sour beer company blended a beer with New Belgium. In October 2017, pH1 returned to Purpose Brewing where it now rests. Get the full story on ph1 here.
pH1 will tap tomorrow starting at 12:30 p.m. Good to the last drop, this super rare, limited release is one for the books. Come in and try it at Purpose before it’s gone!
