Chipotle Co-Brewing Beers for Cultivate Festivals

Festival-specific beers are all the rage, we see


Chipotle is really getting into the booze business these days. Along with launching their craft beer program and a house-made margarita, the fast-casual Mexican food company is collaborating with three breweries to create special brews for the Chipotle Cultivate Festivals in San Francisco, Denver, and Chicago.

The three beers will be brewed specifically for each festival, although all will be saison-styled. In San Francisco, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers has created a hazy, fruit saison that has notes of elderflower, using Belgian Pilsner, Pale, and Canadian Honey malts. The festival takes place June 8, with musical guest Mayer Hawthorne and chef Michael Chiarello.

For Denver, the Great Divide Brewing Company created a saison with black peppercorn and sweet orange peel. In Chicago, Five Rabbit Cerveceria brewed a deep golden saison with flaked rye and Mexican honey.

Sadly, a representative notes that these are exclusively available at Cultivate festivals, which means even Chipotles with craft beer menus won't be pouring them.
