Not one, but two noteworthy beers to try at Crooked Tooth Brewing Company right now. Something tried and true, and something brand new. This is your sign to make a plan to visit the taproom on Sixth Street and enjoy a couple sudsy pours. Treat yo’self!
Budding Moon is the very first beers to be brewed by Crooked Tooth Brewing as part of their long-standing Full Moon brew series. Brewed monthly, under the full moon, these beers are incredibly special and utilize unique ingredients rarely seen on tap.
The first sensory impression of Budding Moon is that of a gentle clove aroma courtesy of the saison yeast. This is immediately followed by juicy, bubblegum-like voluptuousness in each mouthful. A kiss of sweetness from the honey and a floral, earthy finish from the rose and damiana consummates the experience. Budding Moon is swoon-worthy at 9.7% ABV.

Southwest meets West Coast with Crooked Tooth Brewing’s brand-new IPA, Single Entendre. True to the style, Single Entendre is golden and haze-free, with a beautiful dank nose of resin rising from the foam. Each sip provides nice hoppiness reminiscent of grapefruit and lemon pith, and those sugar-powdered citrus hard candies that come in a metal tin. Where my grandmas at?
Single Entendre is hopped generously with Citra, Strata, and Idaho 7 hops, including a double dry hopping which balances the bitter with fruity, floral hop flavors. ABV is 7.6% — you get what you came here for. Enjoy in the Crooked Tooth Brewing taproom and at your favorite local pubs.
