At Archetype, we focus on yeast. Our exploration began in our brewer, Steven Anan's home, where he perfected his own strain of Belgian Saccharomyces that went on to become our own "house" strain at Archetype. We know this yeast inside and out, and we've used it to create a wide variety of inspired beers to show it's scope and range. Below is a list of our beers made with our house Saccharomyces strains.

BELGIAN WITBIER | 5.6% ABV

Our interpretation of a Belgian Wit. We use the traditional bitter orange peel and coriander, then pair it with an additional spice blend. Notes of bread crust, ginger, and citrus make for a bright and refreshing summer beer.
