American wild ale is a very wide-ranged category. This can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing. I like the idea of knowing exactly what I’m getting when I purchase a beer, but I love being blown away by a beer that I wasn’t expecting. This is why these open-ended categories can cause headaches. That and the fact that I’m a finnicky little girl. But I digress. I’m here to talk about a collaboration between two of my favorite breweries: The Lost Abbey and New Belgium.
