New Glarus, WI (November 7th 2009) Deborah (President) and Daniel (Diploma Master Brewer) Carey of New Glarus Brewing Company have always taken their love of Wisconsin to new heights by creating beers inspired by all that this great state has to offer. Their latest Unplugged release, 'Wisconsin Cran-bic' continues this tradition by honoring the 'wilds' of Wisconsin with a marriage of wine and beer, adding a lively little fruit to make it uniquely Wisconsin. Nowhere in the world (except Wisconsin) will you find a brew like this!

Created using spontaneous fermentation true to the original lambic style, 'Wisconsin Cran-bic' is aged in oak barrels. As a nod to all that is Wisconsin, Daniel has updated this 500 year old brewing style with the state fruit, cranberries. Wisconsin provides more than half of the world's total supply of cranberries, and is the number one cranberry producing state in the nation. To further update this authentic style, Daniel has embraced the use of wild Wisconsin yeast. The combination of these novel adaptations to one of the most unique and well established beer styles results in a brew that is truly authentically Wisconsin.

Sparkling and bright this is a Wisconsin original created for you in the traditional method employed by the Lambic Brewers of Belgium including five months of outdoor resting in oak barrels. Indigenous yeast and cranberries from the "wilds" of Wisconsin flawlessly pair to dance on your palette. Raise your glass, and toast to all the rare and delightful treasures that are to be found in your local Wisconsin 'wilderness' by embracing your wild side with this truly 'Wisconsin Wild Brew"! Cheers!
