Penitente Canyon Sours
Penitente Canyon, the inspiration for this series of sour ales, is located in the San Luis Valley near Del Norte, CO, and was once a sanctuary for Los Hermanos Penitente. The canyon is named for this deeply religious brotherhood of Spanish and Native American men who sought refuge there in the late 1800s. In the foothills of the San Juan Mountains, the canyon provided solitude that allowed the brotherhood to freely practice their religion. Penitente Canyon is now one of Colorado's premier rock climbing areas, although it still remains secluded, and the bonds of the brotherhood can still be seen in murals that are found on the rocks.
