Video: 6 key differences between stainless and wood cellar souring


Our next Hop Kitchen beer Hop Tart hits taps on Monday, so we thought it would be a good time to revisit some of the differences between stainless souring (which we use in releases like Hop Tart and Snapshot) and the souring process that goes down in our wood cellar (La Folie, Le Terroir, etc). We asked New Belgium's microbiologist Kelly Tretter and wood cellar blender Lauren Salazar to break it down for us, in a point-for-point we're calling "science vs. magic."

Fun fact: Our stainless process uses just one organism we isolated from inside our own brewhouse, while our wood cellar contains roughly 250 different organisms. Hit play for more.

Don't forget to set your beer finder alerts to Hop Tart, so you'll know when the new release hits a tap near you.

Cheers — Chris
