While City Star slings craft beer in downtown Berthoud, Ursa Major slings innovative propulsion systems for space launch, hypersonics, and national security. Ursa asked City Star to come together to craft an employee appreciation beer. The two wanted to create a palatable and approachable beer to all, choosing to brew a pale ale. The hops for this brew were chosen based on their “space” names. This brew features Comet, Strata and Galaxy hops. The beer was dry hopped twice early during fermentation to achieve bio transformation of the hop compounds. City Star chose to use local Root Shoot Malting’s award winning English Pale Ale Malt. Ursa visited City Star on the day of brewing to learn about the brewing process and tour the local Berthoud brewery.
1000 cans of Full Duration Juicy Pale Ale will be sent over to Ursa for their employees to enjoy while a few kegs will be available on tap at City Star. The public can come enjoy this juicy pale ale starting Friday, May 19th at the downtown Berthoud City Star taproom.
