Crooked Stave's New Fouder

A "foeder" the king of all barrels arrived this week! For all of you that have not yet heard Funkwerks has a sister brewery, Crooked Stave, that will be serving beers from our tap room.  Chad Yakobson is the founder of the new brewery and he has been brewing at Funkwerks for a couple of months.  Chad is focusing primarily on sours, and brettanomyces beers.  Funkwerks is planning on serving two of his beers in our taproom as soon as they are ready.  Yakobson has a MSc. degree in Brewing and Distilling from the International Centre for Brewing and Distilling, located at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh, Scotland. "I am a Hophead with a serious Sour ale addiction. This has led to my interest in all things Brettanomyces."   Check out Chad's brewery website with up to date information on how his beers are doing.
