“The legendary friendship between Washington and Lafayette, American and Frenchman, helped forge our country’s independence in the 18th century. That camaraderie is replayed in 2014.” So begins the narrative written by Mother Earth Co-Founder and General Manager Daniel Love regarding this historic collaboration.
Or as Brasserie du Pays Flamand Co-Founders Mathieu Lesenne and Olivier Duthoit put it; “Ont fait de leur devise ┬½ pensez global — consommez local ┬╗, une vraie politique d’entreprise. Associés autour d’une bi├¿re collaborative qui se veut ├¬tre la fusion parfaite de deux cultures bi├¿res, les brasseurs sont heureux de vous proposer leur Printemps Houblon’ale. “
Loosely translated and paraphrased to; “Local artisans, thinking globally to bring the best of both cultures together.” In this case, “Printemps Houblon‘ale” — a hoppy beer for spring.
In planning since mid-2013, this collaboration has Mathieu and Olivier joining the Mother Earth team at their Vista brewing facility to create a special interpretation of the classic Tripel. Brewing will occur on February 9th.
In addition, Mother Earth has selected “Printemps Houblon’ale” to be the first offering of their soon to be announced, “Four Seasons of Mother Earth” specialty release program. This initiative, tied to the change of the seasons, will feature a changing pallet of four specialty and barrel-aged beers, released in limited draft and bottles each and every year. Additional information on “four seasons” will be available in early March.
Mathieu and Olivier will not be returning to France empty handed either. Three Hundred cases of “Printemps” will be heading to France to solidify the friendship forged together in this collaboration.
To celebrate the happening and to feature beers from both breweries for all to enjoy, Come meet the entire collaboration team at a very special Master Brewers dinner to be held on Monday, February 10th at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA. Reservations are available now by contacting the pub directly at 760/471-8773. Menu information is available via the link below and seating is extremely limited.
