CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, we took the basic model of a farm CSA and applied it to the way we offer exciting new limited-release, speciality craft beer styles to members.
Typically, members pay up front for a portion (share) of the harvested produce, eggs, meat, etc. Risk and reward is shared equally among members and growers. Benefits include high-quality fresh food and a direct relationship with farm.
We incorporated the CSA concept to provide true craft beer enthusiasts an opportunity to experience unique, limited-release beers in a wide range of styles. The breadth of styles can range from Imperial Stouts, to a variety of Pale Ales, or Saison styles that feature seasonal produce. The CSA is a great way to be involved with the craft beer community and have a close, working relationship with the brewery and other craft beer aficionados.
Shares are sold in 6-month increments: January - June and July - December. A full share includes 12 bombers each month; a half share includes 6 bombers each month, and a quarter share includes 3 bombers per month. The program is favorably priced at less than $7 per bomber for premium craft beers that often would be sold at a retail cost of as much as $20 per bomber. Click here for pricing info.
Members receive updates about the beer and notifications as to when to pick up their share at the brewery on the farm, or at Craft Beer Cellar in Old Town, Fort Collins.
CSA BEERS FOR JULY - DECEMBER 2018 INCLUDE:
JULY : CREAM ALE - Our cream ale is light, refreshing and perfect for the heat of summer. A true American original, cream ales once ruled the U.S. beerscape before the macros took over. We're going old school with this one.
AUGUST: NOT-SO-TRAPPIST ALE* - *Noosa Yoghurt Collaboration* This collaboration with Noosa Yoghurt uses active cultures to produce this unique, mildly sour ale. Expect a tart and refreshing light ale.
SEPTEMBER: HARVEST WITBIER - Unfiltered and cloudy, our Belgian-style wheat beer is crisp, slightly sweet and yeasty with light citrus and coriander notes that compliment the transition from Summer to Fall.
OCTOBER: FRESH HOP IPA - We celebrate the fall harvest by using freshly-picked hops to produce an IPA that comes around only once a year. This is our third version, and it's always a winner!
NOVEMBER: DARK CHILI ALE – This ale is a dark turn and departure from the more typical light chili beer. It has soft coffee and roasted malt notes with a generous helping of fresh roasted peppers. A perfect warmer for cold Colorado evenings.
DECEMBER: STEEL-CUT OATMEAL STOUT – We welcome the holiday season with a medium-bodied stout that's great on it's own or with a special meal. A large helping of oats add body and depth that make a velvety, smooth stout.
