It’s our 30th anniversary, and we’re brewing up all kinds of celebrations...and beers! To commemorate the long, strange trip it’s been, we handed our brewmaster, Christian Holbrook, the keys to the New Belgium kingdom and told him to make one helluva wild craft beer—and folks, he did not disappoint. This Wild Ale is a blend of five separate beers matured with wild yeast in white wine barrels and fresh oak barrels. It’s also spiced with orange peel, grains of paradise, and Indian coriander, and then dry-hopped. Finally, it’s conditioned in the bottle with wild yeast. Honestly, this beer was so complex, it took us a few tries to get it right. But there’s nothing we love more than a good craft beer challenge—and we couldn’t be more excited with the final outcome.
