Boulevard Collaboration 7, created with Creature Comforts & Arizona Wilderness

Boulevard Collaboration 7

Boulevard Collaboration 7 debuts in August, a collaboration with Athens, Georgia based Creature Comforts and Gilbert, Arizona’s Arizona Wilderness.

This collaborator series has paired seen the likes of Deschutes Brewery, Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, Firestone Walker, Cigar City, Ommegang, and Orval. Boulevard Collaboration 7 is the first time a two breweries have been a part of the project at the same time.

The trio is creating a “juicy” lager for this seventh iteration, aged briefly on virgin oak. Juicy is an understating term, thanks to peach puree, lemon zest and riesling chosen to compliment carefully selected Nelson Sauvin, Lemondrop and Hallertau Blanc hops. The malt bill is quite complex too, brewed with pale malt, Sonoran White Wheat, Missouri wheat, honey malt and corn grits.

The finished beer will be bottle conditioned with champagne yeast, producing an effervescent golden lager perfect for the late summer heat. Last year, Arizona Wilderness and Creature Comforts partnered on “Transmission“, a citrus saison.

Boulevard Collaboration 7 will be available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.

This weekend, Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. debuted a new beer collaboration – a dream for breakfast food lovers and brunchers alike. Pour another cup of coffee and read on.

Arizona Wilderness Leggo my Ego, a collaboration with Tired Hands, is brewed with waffles. Despite what the name suggests, the brewing team used waffles from Phoenix, Arizona local Welcome Chicken & Donuts. Note in the pic above, the a hop back full of said waffles. The wort was run through the stacks of waffles on the way to the fermenter.

Leggo my Ego, an Imperial IPA,  is brewed with maple syrup, lactose milk sugar, and biscuit malt. Hops for the interested – Belma and Simcoe.

Arizona Wilderness packaged Leggo My Ego in 32 ounce crowlers, available starting Saturday.

Add this to a list of epic, or soon to be epic breakfast themed foods, like Founders Breakfast Stout, and upcoming Dogfish Head Beer for Breakfast.

Is there any limit to what we can do with breakfast food? Let’s hope not.

Jester King Buford's Roadside Wares

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares, a new collaboration with Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. debuts this month.

The creation of Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares started back in January of 2015 when Jonathan Buford and Patrick Ware of Arizona Wilderness traveled to Jester King on a cold Texas day. In hand, the duo had Arizona pecans and Sonora white wheat. Jester King’s additions included Texas pecans and local white wheat.

The result is a new American wild ale inoculated with Jester King’s coolship’s mixed culture, aged in brandy barrels that once contained Jester King Repose.

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares was  “momentum batch” for the brewery – a batch of beer designed to wake up airborne yeast and bacteria in the air for more spontaneously fermented beers to come that season.

Available at Jester King starting March 18th, at 4 pm.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Pecans. Barrel Aged. Brandy.)
Hops: Fuggle

Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft
Debut: 3/18/16

6.4% ABV
