Flavors of wine, bourbon, and tart acidity melt together in one bottle. It starts with a custom blend of two beers, both fermented from coolship-caught microbes. Once fermented, the beer is transferred to oak barrels that first held bourbon before their second life aging cherry wine from Red Fox Cellars, in the Palisade region of Colorado. After being freshly emptied at the winery, the beer was transferred to cherry wine barrels and allowed to rest and soak up all the beautiful cherry wine, rich oak character from the wood, and some of the original bourbon notes.

 PEACEMAKER is part of our experimental series, which uses a blend of two spontaneous solera fermented beers. The blend is a combination of two base beers, one 100% wheat and the other, a golden ale, made with pilsner malt. Both beers were brewed on our 4 BBL system and then cooled in our coolship, a custom-built copper 12 BBL vessel designed to cool wort overnight while inoculating with wild yeast and other microbes from the air. In November, we expanded into the space next door to add 100 oak barrels and a new coolship, which sits under an open window with fans overhead to circulate the air. This allows the boiling wort to cool for 12 hours, which inoculates the wort with airborne microbes, including brettanomyces, lactobacillus, pediococcus, and saccharomyces. Once it is cooled, the wort is transferred to stainless-steel totes where it aged and fermented for 8-12 months.

This beer was created using a solera method, a process where unfermented wort is added to finished beer, which causes the active microbes in the beer to referment the new wort, creating an almost identical copy of the original spontaneously fermented beer. When the total volume has finished fermentation, a portion of the beer is then transferred to another container and the new, unfermented wort, is topped off to replace and referment on the existing beer. This is a continuous process that we have used for over three years to create one of a kind beers, as each beer changing slightly from the previous batch.

The base beer is funky and tart and pairs perfectly with the sharp flavors of the barrel, while still peeking through with a complex and unique character. This beer is the culmination of years of spontaneous fermentation, barrel aging, and a unique partnership with Red Fox Cellars. Bottles are extremely limited and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. This beer will continue and develop with age so drink fresh or save for later.

PEACEMAKER was named after the production of the Convair B-36 “Peacemaker”, originally created for the United States Air Force by Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation in 1946 as a piston-engine bomber capable of delivering nuclear weapons intercontinentally without refueling, with a range of 10,000 miles and a maximum payload of 87,200 lbs.

The B-36 set the standard for range and payload for subsequent U.S. intercontinental bombers.

Fiction Beer CO is excited to announce a collaboration with Erotic Romance writer Liz Crowe!

 The collaborative backstory:

Fiction beer was tagged on Facebook regarding an article on The Beer Necessities written by Aaron Goldfarb titled “Romance novels for Beer Geeks: Inside Craft Beer-Themed Literature.” (https://thebeernecessities.com/craft-beer-romance-novels/) Featured in the article was author Liz Crowe. She has written 42 total books since 2010—with many of them based in the craft beer world. (Liz doesn’t just write about the beer world, she works in it—as founder and marketing director of an Ann Arbor-based brewery, and now as marketing, distributor relations, and social media consultant for various breweries. She is also one of the founders of a Michigan-based women’s beer collective called Fermenta.) With titles such as, “Paradise Hops, “Tapped” and “Lightstruck” our interest was piqued! We immediately reached out to Liz to see if she would be interested in helping us name our Guava Kölsch. A lot of email exchanges later and we had our collaborative plan: a fantastic name for our Guava Kölsch and a novella written by Liz with our beer being brewed in the story!

The beer:
‘Adjunct Lovers’ is a Kölsch fermented with guava. The Kölsch beer style is known for being light, crisp and refreshing—a perfect canvas for fruit. We always try to make our fruit beers so that the fruit is noticeable but does not detract from the beer. This beer was fermented with .5 pounds of guava per gallon. The result is a solid classic Kölsch enhanced by the powerful and delicate flavor and aroma of guava.
Color: A hazy pale straw, tinted with a touch of pink and orange.
 Aroma: Burst of guava on the nose followed by a light bready pilsner malt character. Notes of other fruits including papaya, mango and ripe pear.
 Flavor: Soft pilsner malt sweetness followed by a delicate touch of guava fruit flavor mingled with a mellow fruity sweetness. Fruit character continues to increase as the beer warms.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied but dry and refreshingly drinkable.

Fiction Beer Company is located at: 7101 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO.
