Barrel Culture Drinkware / Cyber Monday Yeast Launch

It’s that time of year again. This week Americans will overindulge in food, family and fabulous sales. Of course, we’d be jerks if we didn’t heap amazing deals on the world’s yeast wranglers and microbe geeks.

That’s why beginning now through Cyber Monday (November 30) everything in the Bootleg Biology Shop is 20% off! Just use coupon code “BFCM” at checkout. (Sale doesn’t apply to homebrew cultures. But read on for exciting news on the next homebrew culture release.)

That’s 20% off Backyard Yeast Wrangling Tool Kits, Official Kit Refills, T-Shirtsand Drinkware

Did I forget to mention we now have Bootleg Biology Barrel Culture Glassware and Coasters?!?

Barrel Culture Pint Glass Set

Barrel Culture Pint Glass Set

Four (4) handsome pint glasses featuring the Bootleg Biology Logo, and four different reverse sides featuring the Barrel Culture Four Horsemen: Sacch, Brett, Lacto & Pedio!

This ain’t your daddy’s pint glass: These 16 oz glasses have the durability and stackability of the traditional shaker pint glass, but with sleeker curves that taper inward at the top to better handle frothy heads and fussy aromas, and a weighted bottom to ensure reliable stability and comfortable gripability.

We’re actually so excited about this glassware that we decided to bring another gratuitous animated GIF into the world:

Barrel Culture Coaster Set

This is where the rubber meets the road…or where your favorite glass meets the table. Our set of 4 Barrel Culture coasters are thick and sturdy, reusable, and made in the USA out of 100% recycled tires.

They feature the Barrel Culture Four Horsemen of Mixed Culture Fermentation on one side (Sacch, Brett, Lacto & Pedio) and the Bootleg Biology Logo on the opposite side.

Of course, we also have discounts when ordering more than one item together:

Barrel Culture Glassware & Coaster Set – Includes 4 Pint Glasses and 4 Coasters. Creates awesome barrel culture synergies, from head to table, when drinking your favorite whalez.

Everything Barrel Culture Combo Pack – Includes 4 Pint Glasses, 4 Coasters, and 1 amazingly soft ultra-geeky Barrel Culture T-Shirt. The ultimate gift for beer geeks, homebrewers and amazing-deal-obsessed-microbe-afficionados.

All Barrel Culture Pint Glass and Coaster Sets will ship out the week of December 7 if ordered by November 30.


Yeah, but what about the homebrew cultures?!?

Culture sales will start up again on Monday, November 30 at Noon (12pm) Central Time and will be available until each culture sells out.

We are re-releasing a limited stock of The Magi, Funk Weapon #1, and Sour Solera Blend (Fall 2015 Edition). As well as two new cultures:

Dusty Bottoms Collection (logo)


Funk Weapon #2 – Perfect for 100% Brettanomyces fermentations, especially Brett IPAs. Amplifies citrus and tropical fruit-forward hop flavors and aromas into a punchy ripeness. Great for maintaining the nuance of hops in beer with greater keeping qualities than a brewer’s yeast fermentation. Cultured from a West Flanders gueuze.


Local Yeast Project (logo)


Chardonnay – Isolated from Chardonnay grapes harvested from Kamiak Vineyards/Gordon Estate Winery in Pasco, WA using Bootleg Biology’s Capture Method #2. This culture is a clean fermenter but produces mild phenolics and a touch of citrusy aroma at normal ale temperatures. Able to handle the high alcohol environment of a white wine fermentation (13%+).


As with the glassware and coasters, all homebrew culture orders placed by November 30 will ship the week of December 7. Definitely check out our Homebrew Culture Ordering & Shipping Policy before purchasing.

Hope you all enjoy this special time with your friends and families.

To fermentation!
