Southern Tier Live
Judges Ratings 

Beer is made by creating a liquid rich with fermentable material. This ‘wort’ is moved to a fermentation vessel where yeast, a living organism, is added. Yeast swims around the fermenter gobbling up the soluble sugar and converting that energy into alcohol. Imagine the feeding frenzy of millions of tiny yeast cells eating their way around a big fermenter. It’s a volatile and active environment. During this time, the beer is literally alive. Just prior to packaging, we add a little yeast to the clear beer for a secondary fermentation. This helps to add carbonation, remove oxygen, and prolong shelf life.

ABOUT THE LABEL: When Southern Tier named the beer “Live” they wanted the label to have the feeling of live music. Their art department came up with the idea of using ticket stubs. Those shown here are from the brewery staff and friends from around the country. Look closely – you may have rocked out at some of the same shows!
