The first R&D Series for 2016 will be released by New Glarus Brewing Co. in two weeks.
The New Glarus, Wis.-based brewery’s newest beer is Vintage 2015, a 5 percent ABV “American gauze” that is a blend of beers brewed in 2012 and 2014 and includes Wisconsin wheat and aged hallertau blanc hops. The beer was soured naturally in the brewery’s coolship before being oak barrels and was bottled in July 2015.
Vintage 2015 is the first of three different beers in the brewery’s R&D Series this year, with the final two beers scheduled to be released on Aug. 12 and Sept. 23.
According to a post on New Glarus’ Facebook page, R&D Vintage 2015 will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($10) and will be available at the brewery starting on June 10, with a two bottle per person per day limit.
