RateBeer.com -- Correct Wynkoop Brewjolais NouveauWynkoop Brewjolais Nouveau


Description:
This was a very special collaboration for us, we brewed it with one of our heroes, Peter Bouckaert of the mighty New Belgium Brewing. Our head brewer Andy Brown developed the concept for the beer, and then he and Peter brainstormed the beer with Ben Parsons at Infinite Monkey Theorem....Brewed last September, Brewjolais Nouveau is arguably the most outside-the-lines beer weíve ever brewed here. Itís a unique beer-meets-wine mashup, a hybrid sour brown ale fermented with 1200 pounds of cabernet grapes, then aged in wine barrels for several months. "I wanted to create," Brown says, "a hybrid beer that blended a Belgian, Flanders-style brown ale with a wine from the Burgundy region of France." What style does that make the beer? We donít know. A "Flanders/Denver-Style Purple" perhaps. You tell us....It was fermented with a wine yeast (sacchromyces byanus, to be exact), a Belgian beer yeast strain, and then aged in wine barrels for about three months before being blended to completion.
