This beer is the symbolic result of years of collaboration between neighboring breweries, GoodLife and The Ale Apothecary. As two distinct versions of what an American craft brewery is and represents, we designed this Brett Lager to take elements from both breweries to create something new and unique. First, we brewed a Dortmunder style lager at GoodLife’s production facility. After 2 months of cold-conditioning, we transferred the beer into Sokol Blosser barrels and allowed the beer to warm up to ale temperatures, then added The Ale Apothecary’s wild house yeast culture to further evolve the beer during the 18-month barrel aging process.

The house culture from The Ale Apothecary provides intense aromas of tropical and stone fruits, benefitting from completely natural carbonation from bottle fermentation. Fresh cut hay, funky barnyard notes and figs are reminiscent of Belgian lambic while the initial lager characteristics of Mecca Grade Estate malt and yeast are still evident and intertwined. This beer was made with The Ale Apothecary’s finely tuned aging process and GoodLife’s adventurous style to create a truly wild beer experience!

Join us for the release of the most special beer we've been apart of, to date. We've been working on this project for two years so we are excited to be able to finally share it with you!
