We are proud to present the eighth in our series of Meet the Brewer events! On October 4th we are bringing Eric Salazar down from New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins. Eric Salazar is one of the most known and respected names in the US Brewing industry. He is renowned as the brewer for the wood aged and sour program at New Belgium, which is one of the largest (possibly the largest) and most innovative sour programs in the United States.
We are changing the format of Meet the Brewer quite a bit for this event. Eric Salazar will give a 60-minute Keynote Presentation called "From Grain to Glass" while we eat and drink. The presentation has received accolades from other beer geeks. Not only that but New Belgium is bringing out a lineup of terrific beers for our event! We will see some rare, limited, and special beers from the NB Lips of Faith line. This event will promise to be the most unique and educational of our series so far, and I recommend coming early to grab a seat.
A list of the beers:
Biere de Mars - A celestial orange colored beer with notes that are sweet, tart, citrusy, fruity, and honey-like.
Eric's Ale - A Wild Ale that's fermented with peaches. A rare treat from Eric Salazar himself!
Fall Wild Ale - Mahogany Dubbel Ale spiced with Schisandra berries, with a touch of Brettanomyces.
La Folie - The signature Lips of Faith beer. A very sour Flemish Red that inspires many brewery's barrel programs.
Super IPA - A collaborative 2IPA with Alpine Brewery in California. Massive citrus and floral hop profile.
Trippel Firkin Dry Hopped - New Belgium's famous Trippel, this one is a cask version and dry-hopped with Cascade hops.
