Colorado is not only a hub for craft breweries but the materials providers themselves. There is hardy barley & hop farming around the state, and more than one local yeast propagator laboratory. Inland Island Yeast Laboratories is the premier business for ordering and growing yeast for brewing. Trusted by dozens of breweries around the United States, including 4 Noses Brewing Company, Odd13 Brewing, Ratio Beerworks & Upslope Brewing Company, Inland Island is highly regarded throughout the brewing community — their yeast helped brewers win 12 medals at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival.
Inland Island streaked & grew a number of yeast plates that Fermentable Sugar photographed to use as an engaging visual content on their homepage. We also worked closely with Inland Island to build a site that makes it easy to view all the dozens of strains they have available, and to make the ordering process as easy as possible. The “Yeast for Professional Brewers” page has a dynamic order form that changes depending on how a brewery answers a few critical questions. Of note, one of the coolest parts is a customized delivery calendar. Depending on what the brewery selects (courier delivery, local pickup, or overnight shipping), the available dates for delivery change based on what was selected. This gives the customer an idea of when they can realistically expect their order to be ready.
