Photos: Our mega collab with Charlotte breweries

Today, we're brewing up a mega collaboration beer in our pilot brewery for the next Beers with Vrienden release, called Yours and Mine. The collaboration features some of our closest friends in Charlotte's North Davidson neighborhood: Heist, Bird Song, Free Range and NoDa Brewing. As for the beer, it was inspired by the Beers Made By Walking program, where brewers find inspiration for new beers by looking for ingredients during nature walks. This particular golden ale will feature beet sugar (a nod to the beet sugar plant that once occupied our property), lavender from New Belgium's grounds, Colorado sunflowers and North Carolina's state fruit the Scuppernong grape. That's quite the collection of ingredients. Here's what the brew day has looked like so far:

Adding bittering hops to the mix.

Where the magic happens inside the pilot brewery.

Cleaning out spent grain is tough business.

All that spent grain becomes cattle feed.

New Belgium brewmaster Peter Bouckaert meets the crew.

Here's the artwork for the upcoming release.

Cheers — Chris
