Kettle Sour with Peaches and Plums

4.5% ABV // IBUs 7 // SRM 2.3

Available: December 18th until it runs out


Space for Everyone is a long awaited collaboration between two space lovers, Empirical and The Adler Planetarium.  We both love the science behind yeast and how it turns liquids into alcohol, so we decided to brew something with multiple strains of yeast and bacteria, a kettle sour. 

We plan to switch up the ingredients every time we brew a new batch of "SPACE" for further exploration of flavor. This batch is light and easy drinking; tart, fruity and floral with a malty finish!

Space is also available at these locations:
