Just one month after Wild Bitter was released, New Glarus Brewing Co. has another beer in its R&D series ready to go.
The New Glarus, Wis.-based brewery will be releasing R&D Vintage 2014, a 6 percent ABV “sour blonde” gueuze composed of a blend of one-, two- and three year-old beers aged on oak and bottled in August 2014. The release of the new beer is meant to coincide with the 26th Annual Village Polka Fest and Beer, Bacon, & Cheese Event, which takes place in the town of New Glarus every year.
Vintage 2014 is the second of four different releases in the brewery’s R&D series this year, following R&D Wild Bitter IPA (10 percent ABV) last month. The third release will be on Aug. 6 and the final beer will be released on Oct. 8. New Glarus is not releasing any other information on the final two beers at this time.
According to the a press release, R&D Vintage will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($10) and will be available at the brewery starting on June 11, with a two bottle per person per day limit.
