It’s been awhile since we crowd sourced a beer name for one of our exclusives so we thought this one was the perfect opportunity. As we’ve done in the past, if your name is selected, you’ll win a 6 month, 2-bottle membership to The Rare Beer Club®. I mean, really, how can you resist? This is a no-brainer. So head down to the beer fridge, pick out something that will inspire your creativity and bust out your legal pad and pencil baby!
Each year, for over 10 years now, we’ve teamed up with Rick Lyke over at Pints for Prostates and a US craft brewery to create a super cool Rare Beer Club exclusive beer to help promote the importance of prostate cancer screening in the beer community. We’re super pumped to be working with Jeff and Chris at Atom Brewing Company. They’re small and they’re good. A true farmhouse operation, from their custom oak fermenters to the cedar lined ceiling that allows wild microflora to flourish, Atom is creating exceptional small-batch, hand-crafted beers. I love that they’re packaging their beers still (uncarbonated). Not a lot of breweries doing that these days.
So when Jeff pitched an open-fermented, Imperial Farmhouse Stout incorporating sunflower seeds and cacao, aged in his custom oak fermenters using a house blend of wild yeast, I was like… “Hang on a sec Jeff. I need to consult my team on this one. Actually, I really don’t. This one’s going to go over just peachy man.”
Wait. Don’t power down just yet. Are you still there? There’s some stuff you gotta know first.
