More Collaboration #2
Posted by Bull E. Vard
Deschutes and Boulevard Brewing-White IPA Collaboration from Ritch Marvin on Vimeo.
Not much new information in the video above, but it shows Larry Sidor of Deschutes and Steven Pauwels of Boulevard talking about Collaboration #2. They had an event at the Deschutes brewpub much like the one we attended at Boulevard early in May. In the video, Larry and Steven talk about the creation, formulation and collaboration between the two to come up with the collaboration White IPA. The new piece of information is the release date of 7/11. What I know about beer release dates, especially a month in advance, is that the 7/11 date is extremely tentative. But, in the interest of giving out information, I thought it might be important.
Between what The New School blog and Beervana are saying, they concur with my assessment that these early versions that we tried are a little light on the IPA side. But, it is a very good beer and will be well worth seeking out both companies' versions to give them a shot. It won't last long.
