Collective Arts Brewing Brewmaster Ryan Morrow Talks Jam Up The Mash

Collective Arts Brewing Brewmaster Ryan Morrow Talks Jam Up The Mash

We spoke with Collective Arts Brewing Brewmaster Ryan Morrow about Jam Up The Mash.

BC: Who came up with this beer’s recipe?
I came up with this concept for a recipe 3 years ago. We initially launched it as a limited release, but there was high demand to bring back and to make it available year round.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
There is a bright, peachy fruitiness on the nose and juicy peach flavor reminiscent of sour fuzzy peaches!

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
There is a small team that works together to name beers at Collective Arts, we collect inspiration from various places and keep adding to a long list of name ideas, we then work together on a short list when we have a beer to name. Three or so months after we initially released this beer as ‘Mash Up The Jam’ we were contacted by a brewery that had a mix pack in the market called ‘Mash Up. Threatened with the idea of restarting this naming process we flipped it around, thus, Jam Up The Mash was born.

BC: Is this your “desert island beer?”
Tough call, but I might have to stick to lagers if I were to survive!

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Gotta say sour fuzzy peaches again, but far more refreshing!

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
The name change and legal challenge we faced was really the main story around this beer. But we didn’t really make a lot of noise when we had to, just a quiet flip that worked in our favor!

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
Something that is a little salty and a little sweet like Kung Pao chicken!
