New Belgium/Lost Abbey 'Brett Beer' (Thursday) Release Party @ Jake's Lincoln

LINCOLN JAKE'S: This Thursday (6/21) Jake's Lincoln will be hosting a rockin' release party for 'Brett Beer', a collaboration beer between two heavyweight breweries, New Belgium and Lost Abbey.

Commercial description: "New Belgium Brewing and The Lost Abbey brewery from San Marcos, California have a shared passion for a variety of things, not the least of which is the wild Belgian yeast brettanomyces. So they decided to join forces and collaborate. Lost Abbey Collaboration is brewed simply with pale malts accompanied by Target, Centennial and Sorachi hops for a hint of citrus. Focusing on their mutual respect for the ingredient, the spotlight shines on the brettanomyces, where a full brett fermentation offers bold pineapple overtones and funky, sour edge. The beer is a shining, golden shade and is warming and dry."

The version we will be sampling was brewed at New Belgium with the help of Tomme Arthur from Lost Abbey.  Be sure to watch the video below about the other version 'Mo’ Betta Bretta' that was made at Lost Abbey!

Also, stop in early for a chance to score a New Belgium shirt, and enjoy the Brett love!

5:00 pm Jake's Lincoln (14th & P St.)
