The Bold & Beautiful In the Pocket

Crux Fermentation Project is best known for their balanced and delicious IPAs and pilsners, and rightfully so! In a crowded market that is drowning in examples of these styles, the beers from Crux stand out from the pack. We're always happy to find a fresh Pilz or Half Hitch in our glass.

With their "[Banished]" series, Crux dabbles in the world of barrel aged beers, pushing aside "clean and crushable" in favor of "funky," "strong," and "boldly creative." The series offers evidence that Crux is, in fact, good at everything they do.

Their latest [Banished] release, In the Pocket, is a big imperial saison, weighing in at 9.9% ABV. It has been aged in red wine barrels with two strains of Brettanomyces (Lambicus & Bruxellensis), resulting in a tart, fruity force of a beer that will challenge your concept of "barrel aged saison." It's rustic, vinous, and rich, with surprisingly drinkability despite its heft. It's fantastic stuff, and it's available now!

Now available in 750ml bottles.
