Inside look: New Belgium’s sour beer collab with The Rare Barrel

 

Did you hear we’re doing a Beers with Vrienden collaboration sour beer with our friends The Rare Barrel? It’s true, and we’re pumped to share the details. Above is a video we pulled from our live Periscope broadcast, featuring New Belgium blender Lauren Salazar and The Rare Barrel’s Jay Goodwin and Alex Wallash (note: we normally don’t film vertically, but those are the limitations of Periscope). In it, they spill all the details about the beer, called Err on the Side of Awesome, including:

  • What kind of blend they’re gunning for?
  • How one of the barrels being used (called pH1) once accidently became a Russian River barrel
  • Alex’s interesting connection to New Belgium
  • Where you’ll be able to taste the beer
  • When it comes out (spoiler: September 18)

We’re really excited to have these guys here, tasting just about every wooden barrel of beer we have stashed inside our foeder forest. We're even more excited to taste the final blend. If you’re not familiar with the brewery, head on over to their website to check out all the amazing sour beers they make. For more on our Beers with Vrienden series, check this out.

Happy Friday — Chris
