New Belgium & Brewery Vivant Collaborate On New Lips Of Faith

New Belgium Lips Of Faith Biere De Garde

A second collaboration is in the works between Brewery Vivant and New BelgiumBiere De Garde. New Belgium  started distributing to the state of Michigan in late August. Brewery Vivant & New Belgium created Eschoffier Bretta Ale to celebrate the occasion. Born our of the same friendship is the cocky offering above.

Famous in Michigan for farmhouse ales, our friends at Brewery Viviant introduced us to their biere de garde ale yeast strain. From there, we imagined a slightly tart, intentionally dry beer with hints of bergamot citrus that pairs perfectly with French cheeses. 

Style: Biere De Garde (w/ Orange Peel)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft. Distribution through NB’s channels.

Brewery Vivant & New Belgium Collaborate on “Bretta”

Brewery Vivant Bretta Ale

New Belgium enters the state of Michigan on August 27, 2012. To celebrate the occasion, NB has worked up a collaboration with Brewery Vivant in Grand Rapids. Escoffier Bretta Ale is a celebration of food & beer.

When you put two Lion Fish in a bowl, they fight. When you put to brewers at the same table, the drink beer and become friends. This is how the collaboration came together between our two breweries. With our love of Belgian inspired beer, great food, and running our companies in a sustainable manner, we had a lot to talk about. Next thing you know, we were making plans to brew a beer together. 

Style: American Wild Ale
