Depart Crux Fermentation Project for an awe-inspiring journey to experience nature’s handiwork at Smith Rock through a brewer’s lens.
As we begin our descent into the Crooked River canyon we’ll examine the wildlife, geology, agriculture, water and rock which, when coalesced, give birth to wild yeasts, microflora, and bacteria that provide for the complexities of Crux’s latest Gypsy Coolship release. This sweet fusion is the inspiration behind the brewery’s name! Our hike along the spectacular riparian habitat lends itself to inspiration and understanding of nature’s magic, atmospheric secrets and its brewing compatibility. At some point we will sip the goodness and taste the result of Crux’ open-air, wort-cooled, brewing ingenuity!
Head back to the Crux tasting room for pizza, charcuterie, and a variety of delicious Crux beers where elite staff, handpicked for their knowledge, answer your brewing questions as you drink and dine.
