New Belgium’s known for its epic sour beer program, with 64 French oak foeders providing sour beer to create the likes of La Folie, Transatlantique Kriek, Le Terroir and Tart Lychee. But the origins of our program date back to 1997, well before it was common practice, and well before commercial yeast providers housed the wild critters needed to sour beer. Watch as Peter Bouckaert talks about how New Belgium took a chance on purchasing its first barrels, and how that grew into the program we know today.
