A month or so ago, Josh from Brewer’s Republic let us know he was able to secure the last keg in existence of New Belgium’s Beers Made By Walking beer. We decided the only fitting way to use it was for a fun tapping!
A little history:
A little more than a year ago, we invited New Belgium to be a part of our BMBW program. They went on a walk around their property and identified plants in the area. They decided to use lavender and plum in a bock. Not only that, they invited us to come up to Fort Collins and help brew it with them. The beer has only been on tap in their brewery taproom and it was also available during our 2nd Anniversary Party. It’s a 5.5% amber with subtle and delicate malt notes. The lavender is present but not overwhelming in any way and the plum contributes some nice residual sugars for an extra layer of complexity. This is your last opportunity to try this beer so we hope to see you there.
The cool part:
Proceeds from this final keg will go to Trails and Open Space Coalition in order to help keep our local trails healthy and happy!
