02 May From the Brewer: Why We Sign Our Sour Bottles
As some of you may have noticed, Luke and I sign every sour bottle we release. Why, you ask?
First and foremost, signing the bottles is the final quality check to ensure each label is on correctly, the bottle isn’t chipped, the cap is sealed, the cork isn’t pushed out, etc.
Secondarily — but just as important — we see the signing of our names as a thank you note to the customers who purchase the bottles. As much as we would like to, we don’t get to meet every person who buys our beer, but by putting our signatures on each bottle, we are telling people that this is our best effort and the best product we could offer.
We put our all into every beer, but our barrel aged program gets just a little bit extra. Since there is so much sweat equity, time and thought put into each one of those bottles, it just feels right to sign them as a way to say, “Thank you. We appreciate you. We hope you enjoy this.”
