New Belgium Transatlantique Kriek!!!

new_belgium_transatlantique_kriek

For the first time in over 3 years, we have in stock the New Belgium Transatlantique Kriek.

Just in time for our featured event with New Belgium’s Lauren Limbach tomorrow, we will be releasing the beer during the event FIRST to ticket holders. After the event is over, it will make its way to the shelves. We will also have bottles of Le Terroir and La Folie available during the event.

For tickets, click here and we will see you tomorrow!

From New Belgium’s website:

“Winner of a gold medal at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival, Transatlantique Kriek begins its life in oaken vessels of Gert Christiaens’ Oud Beersel, a 130-year-old lambic brewery in the Zenne valley of Belgium – home of authentic Lambic beer. After time spent aging in wood, Oud Beersel’s lambic is blended with tart Polish cherries and shipped across the Atlantic to New Belgium. In concert with Oud Beersel’s cherry lambic, or Kriek, we blend an equal portion of golden sour ale matured for 1 – 3 years in our oak vessels called foeders. 50% Sour Golden Ale blended with 50% Traditional Cherry Lambic Ale leads to an intense cherry nose, a sour flash across the palate and a refreshing, mouthwatering finish.”
