At Spruce On Tap we love brewing, but we love trees too. We are adamant about making sure the trees are not over harvested and that the spruce tips are only harvested in areas where the spruce tree is thriving. We recognize that trees are the source of our fresh air and they are beautiful to boot, and we strive to protect them. All spruce tips are Wild Harvested primarily in the San Juan Mountain Range of southern Colorado, in the San Juan, Rio Grande and Uncompagre National Forests. We harvest both Colorado Blue Spruce tips and Engelmann Spruce tips. We harvest the spruce tips when they first begin to emerge from their brown, papery casings each spring. At this stage they are very tender and have the brightest flavor with slight mint, pine, melon and citrus notes.
Check out what some of our customers have to say!
* "Being proverbial cherubs in the woods when it comes to brewing with spruce tips, we needed some gentle guidance and sage advice prior to brew day. Randy was incredibly quick, detailed, and courteous with his responses back to us and helped immeasurably with formulating our approach. Spruce On Tap genuinely cares about the quality of their product and ensuring a top notch customer service experience. From our initial inquiry right through to the tips arriving in prime condition after a 2,200 mile journey – we honestly couldn’t have had a better experience." - Chuck Freeman, Ipswich Ale Brewery
* "Spruce on Tap has been supplying us with high quality spruce tips over the past several years and has always been great to work with. Fantastic spruce tips and great to work with!" Chad Collier - Dogfish Head Brewery
* "We've been sourcing spruce tips from Spruce On Tap for over five years now for some tap room specialties and I couldn't be happier. Great communication, great people, and most importantly the product has been great every time. Our customers love the fact that these are delicious hand-picked spruce tips instead of some random spruce extract, and the sales of the beer reflect that." - Andy Parker, Barrel Herder, Avery Brewing Company
