Lips of Faith

Ever tried a “bier de garde”? Here’s a great example of the style brewed by New Belgium Brewing. Full of spicy flavor, it really leaves a bite. The yeast creates a “horse blanket” quality called brettanomyces- giving the beer an earthy and hay-like flavor.

It sounds strange, but it’s really pretty delicious. Kudos to New Belgium! Cheers!
