Share Post

Originally slated for Denver’s famed Collaboration Fest, Molly’s Spirits and Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project have released their 2020 collaboration beer, Molly’s Strawberry Shortcake Pastry Sour. The beer is available at Molly’s Spirits now for $16.99 for a six-pack. Crooked Stave released a limited amount of six-packs in its Denver taproom on Wednesday and will release a limited amount of six-packs at its Fort Collins taproom on Friday. 

Molly’s Strawberry Shortcake Pastry Sour, pink in color, is a delightful and decadent sour that is bursting with sweet fruit notes. It is packed with fresh strawberry notes, vanilla and a tiny hint of coconut on the finish. The tartness is balanced with some lactose that makes the beer reminiscent of this popular summer dessert.

“We love collaborating with our Colorado craft breweries, and we have admired and respected Crooked Stave for years. Our goal was to create a beer that reminds the drinker of the classic strawberry shortcake, and we absolutely nailed it,” said Tony Doria, Molly’s Spirits beer manager. “It is like enjoying a strawberry shortcake on a perfect Colorado spring day.

Molly’s Spirits has produced more than 30 beer collaborations with Colorado breweries over the years, many of which are available year-round at both the Lakeside and Greenwood Village, Colo. stores. 

Molly’s Strawberry Shortcake Pastry Sour is available to purchase at both Molly’s Spirits locations as well as through their new e-commerce website. Purchases from the online store are picked up via curbside. The beer will soon be able for delivery via Drizly.
