Into the Wild — Diversity & Variation with Brewery Bhavana

Join us as one of only 40 guests to help New Belgium and Brewery Bhavana create our very first collaboration beer. Taste through four unblended sours, pulled directly from four separate New Belgium foeders and Brewery Bhavana’s wood cellar, to help us decide on the final blend, which will be released in cans later this year. Build a wildflower bouquet, eat your fill of dim sum, and savor some of our favorite past releases (including New Belgium’s L’amour en Cage, a golden sour refermented on golden gooseberries) while listening to music from Andrew Thiboldeaux and wandering through Bhavana’s wood cellar.

Music by Andrew Thiboldeaux.

Dinner from Brewery Bhavana.

Each guest will receive a custom tasting glass, t-shirt, and pin.
