I have had the pleasure of working with Escarpment Labs through two breweries, both with very different focuses, scale, and very different locations. Their commitment to research, innovation, and education has made it so their services always stay top of mind when I am developing a new recipe or chatting with other brewers.
Escarpment takes care of the yeast in my personal yeast bank and they propagate the yeast to pitchable quantity. They have outstanding customer service and their technical support is very focused on the reality of craft breweries.
It's always a pleasure to work with Escarpment. We've loved working with their various lager and saison strains, their kveiks, and they have been a tremendous resource for technical advice. I'm proud and pleased to have such a world class yeast lab here in Ontario.
We're stoked to say we've worked with Escarpment Labs right from the start. High-quality yeast and technical support in a timely manner, without the border hassles!
The collaboration between the van der Merwe research team and Escarpment Labs has led to innovations that improve the sustainability and economics of Canadian craft brewers who previously relied on imported yeast strains.
Whenever we have needed additional technical support to tackle a quality issue or asked for advice on a yeast strain, the folks at Escarpment have always been keen to help. Working with them has been like having a really good lab partner in Science Class!
Working with Escarpment Labs is awesome! Out of the many things that we love, what makes the difference is their innovative spirit, their willingness to share their vast knowledge and their reliability to get yeast on time to us. They help us keep our yeast happy, push boundaries and make really good beer!
Escarpment has advised me on techniques ranging from harvesting yeast from heavily hopped beers to best practices fermenting a clean lager, and consequently taken our beer to another level. The time and attention dedicated to technical support is second to none.
Learn. Innovate. Teach. Repeat.
