Here at The Full Pint, we are like flies on doo doo when it comes to picking up on trends in the craft beer industry. Whether it be an influx in styles to hit the market, or any other gimmick that helps a brewery sell more beer, we notice it and analyze it immediately.
We just released the news that New Belgium Brewing would be the third collaboration 3 Floyds Brewing has done with a brewer to the West. Collaborations have been all the rage for many years now. What makes this particular fact extra interesting, is two things: Firstly, 3 Floyds Brewing might be the single most popular brewery in the country due to their legend/mystique. Secondly, it’s well known within the midwest craft enthusiast community that 3 Floyds has been challenged to keep up with demand for locals in their own back yard.
Within the last year, 3 Floyds has brewed collaborations with The Bruery, Firestone Walker and now New Belgium. So we have to ask you a few leading questions on your feelings on this.
