North Carolina-based brewpub Wicked Weed Brewing and New Belgium Brewing of Colorado have partnered to produce a new collaboration beer, Brettanomyces IPA or Brett IPA.

The beer, which will be produced in limited amounts, will be released on 8 March 2013.

Wicked Weed Brewing will also make the beer available on tap at its taproom at 91 Biltmore Avenue, featuring representatives from both breweries.

The move comes after Wicked Weed owners Luke Dickinson and Walt Dickinson visited New Belgium in September 2013 to brew the 15 barrel batch of Brettanomyces IPA for New Belgium.

During the process, Wicked Weed brought spelt from Riverbend Malt House, while New Belgium contributed their Brettanomyces strain and a developmental hop variety.

Luke said brewing at New Belgium was probably one of the best experiences he had making beer.

The Brett IPA beer was first released in Denver, Colorado in fall 2013.

New Belgium brewer Matty Gilliland was quoted by Mountain Xpress as saying that the complex beer had a host of various flavours simmering at threshold level.

"One can pick up notes of different fruits, herbs and even a black currant flavor. The bretta has a candied pineapple thing going on now, but will likely change over time," Gilliland added.

Walt said he is excited to taste the beer now, six months after the Brett has rested because it will be the funky beer they had envisioned when they brewed it.

"It was a big, chewy, hoppy brett when we tapped it in Denver and now it will be a softer, more developed brett complexity," Walt added.
