In the summer of 2008, we decided to build a coolship at our brewery. A coolship is a large shallow pan used to cool wort overnight using outside air temperature. During the cooling process, naturally occurring yeast from the air inoculates the wort. In the morning, the cooled wort is transferred into barrels where the fermentation process begins. The beer is then aged for an undetermined amount of time, until we deem it "ready".

We started selling these beers from our retail store, here at the brewery, in 2011. These beers are being released gradually, in very small amounts, unannounced. Our hope is that this will give a wider variety of our visitors the opportunity to try them.
