New Belgium brews at Trinity

Posted By on Fri, Jan 11, 2013 at 3:17 PM

Legendary New Belgium Brewing Company brewmaster Peter Bouckaert is in Colorado Springs today working on a collaborative beer with highly regarded brewmaster Jason Yester of Trinity Brewing Company.

Trinity Brewing New Belgium Brewing

That's ahead of a special wild game and beer dinner slated for Feb. 24 at Trinity.

The bad news is that dinner sold out in 35 minutes this past Wednesday.

The good news is the collaborative Berliner Wiesse will make a very limited and one-time appearance at the brewery sometime around March so more folks can line up for a sample.

Yester and Bouckaert graciously took a small break from the brewing today to quickly discuss their project with me.

There's some nitty-gritty details for the beer nerds among us and some basic overview stuff for those somehow unfamiliar with these guys and their beers.

Take a listen to all 11 minutes of the chat here (and forgive the horrid noise of my recording device wobbling on an unsteady table a handful of times — there's a reason I'm not on the radio):

In that interview, you'll hear mention of Le Capitaine, a beer Yester brewed in tribute to Bouckaert. That's why you'll see it in a couple of the photographs in this slideshow.
