We are thrilled to welcome Daniel Carey of New Glarus Brewing Company as our 11th annual partner in this series. A long-time student of classic Belgian ales and early practitioner of Belgian-style brewing among American brewers, Daniel brings a rich and diverse background to this collaboration.
In the true spirit of this 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.
Enjoy Abtsolution with roasted meats, rich cheese and of course, friends. Cheers!
