"For the 11th annual collaboration we are very proud to present New Glarus Brewing Company!
Well known in the Midwest and a legend elsewhere, New Glarus has dedicated itself to it’s home market of Wisconsin. They have resisted the pressure to sell out of state and, thus, are one of the most sought-after craft beer brands in the the world.
In the true spirit of the project, we have created a beer based on the classic Belgian Abt style, with unique Wisconsin contributions including Santiam and Chinook hops. To further highlight the Dairy State we've added lactose for extra mouthfeel and richness. The result is a dark ale with fruity esters, a velvety smooth palate and balancing wood notes from our use of French and American oak along with spicy hop notes. This ale is designed to drink now, but we believe will evolve beautifully over the next 1-2 years."
