2022 Great American Beer Festival silver medalist! Our friend Mark from The Brew Crew in Denver, CO came up with this unique beer recipe.  It’s a classic Saison, fruited with Sauvignon Blanc grapes, hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Huell Melon and Saaz hops, and fermented with a traditional Saison yeast.  We naturally carbonated this beer, for a rustic, spicy finish, and dense white foam.  Thanks a ton to Mark for sharing his award-winning recipe with us. Enjoy!
Name:  Named after Mark’s daughter’s grape-eating technique:  She would smoosh the whole grapes in her hand, and eat the delicious grape goo that would appear between her fingers.  Her fingers became very sticky, hence the name
