Notes / Commercial Description:
Dr. George Junne, Professor of Africana Studies at the University of Northern Colorado, approached Jeff Crabtree mid summer of 2009 with a unique idea. He proposed if Jeff was interested in the idea to develop a beer that would give fair representation of Dearfield Colorado. The design of the beer was inspired by the style of crops that were produced for the community. After several revisions, the Dearfield Ale was born. A blonde ale brewed with strawberries available shortly in a 22oz limited edition bottle. A majority of the profitable proceeds will be donated to the Dearfield preservation fund to assist the Black American West Museum in stabilizing this great piece of history.

Pours a clear 18 karat gold with a good head of foam that is long lasting.

Fruity smell to it; I get strawberries and some wheat.

Tastes like it smells. Light strawberry notes with a wheat character. Not much more to it but simple can be enjoyable.

Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Not a go to beer but it is an interesting diversion.
