Tue., Feb. 14, 5-11 pm: Loveless Sour Raspberry Dark Saison Bottle Release Party at Ratio Beerworks (2920 Larimer St, Denver)

Our greatest achievements are often those that require the greatest toil. Blend one part passion, one part craftsmanship, a touch of good fortune, and great determination. This is the beauty that exists only through lonely dedication in the creative dark.
Meet Loveless, our Dark Sour Saison, barrel-fermented with saison yeast and our house sour culture for 12 months, then re-fermented in red wine barrels with fresh raspberries for another three months.
With each barrel yielding varying characteristics, Loveless was carefully blended to impart balanced tartness, tied together by a vibrant raspberry finish. As with any labor of love, this endeavor involved both radiant highs and loveless lows, but the end result yielded a most brilliant triumph.
Brewed to celebrate Ratio’s 2nd Anniversary, Loveless will be released on Tuesday, February 14th at 5pm in the 750ML champagne bottle format. Bottles are limited, so get here early.
