Wynkoop Brewing Company Releases Brewjolais Noveau

Last week, Wynkoop Brewing released Brewjolais Nouveau, a collaborative effort with New Belgium’s brewmaster Peter Bouckaert.

The creative ‘beer-meets-wine’ concept is a riff on Beaujolais Nouveau, a red wine made from grapes in the Beaujolais region of France and typically released on the third Thursday of November.

Brewjolais Noveau is a hybrid sour brown ale fermented with 1200 pounds of cabernet grapes. It was aged in wine barrels for 10 months and checks in at 9.6 percent ABV.
