1. Gradualism - Wild Saison w/ Red & White Peppercorns and Dry Hopped w/ MI SummitThis is a staff favorite here at Speciation. It has been in bottles for months and we've drank a decent amount of it already... Sorry. 636 bottles produced. Available from the brewery or in West MI only. $15/bottle. Corked & Caged 750ml. Limit 3/person for Cultured Club. 1/person for the public (subject to change).

2. Pleiotropy - Barrel Aged Dark Sour w/ Madcap Hunapu Coffee. We teamed up with our favorite local coffee roaster for this one to match the base beer with the perfect coffee. After trying 4 different options from Madcap, we agreed on their Hunapu roast from Guatemala. The coffee has notes of chocolate and citrus which blend perfectly with our base dark sour beer. 778 bottles produced. Available from the brewery or through M4 distribution channels only (East Side, Lansing, Kalamazoo). $22/bottle. Corked & Caged 750ml. Limit 4/person to Cultured Club. 2/person for the public (subject to change).

3. Urbanization - Dry Hopped Wild Oat Pilsner - Collaboration w/ City Built Brewing Company. It is a little known fact that our good friends at City Built brew most of our wort. We all knew it had to be a non traditional hoppy pilsner. Brewed with a bunch of oats and heavily dry hopped with Saaz, EKG, and MI Heritage. We brewed two versions of this beer, CBBC's clean version is called Conurbanization is and on tap now at City Built (go grab some tacos and a pilsner!). Our version was open fermented with german lager yeast, and finished with our house cultures. 660 bottles produced. Available statewide. $10/bottle. Capped 750ml. Limit 1/person to Cultured Club. 1/person to public.
