Half Acre Beer Company (Chicago, IL) and New Belgium (Fort Collins, CO) have teamed up to create two different beers. Each of the releases is motivated by a trip to the other’s brewery. New Belgium has already been to Half Acre, and in August the crew will head to Colorado to create their own iteration.
Beer #1: 2023m2 Soft Sour Ale. Designed to highlight the “soft complexity” of New Belgium’s brews. 2023 was slightly soured in the kettle, with Maresh and Sumac spices. Half Acre hopes to brew it again in 2023 and send it to Mars. (Probably not a joke).
Those close to Chicago will be pleased to know it launches July 19th. 22oz bottles, and growlers will be available. We will update you on the brew day in Colorado in August.
