Brussels Beer City turns five, and celebrates with a small festival with some friends: BierCult. It has teamed up with five Brussels breweries and five people from Brussels’ beer community to brew five different collaboration beers.
La Source Beer Co. x Rich Soriano: Hill of Tears
An American IPA named for one of the oldest original Brussels settlements. It is, the brewery says, “a perfect cross-over between East Coast and West Coast” comprising a 100% barley malt bill and is fermented with fruity English yeast. In a nod to Rich’s roots near the US-Mexican border, Hill of Tears is generously hopped with Talus, a daughter of Neomexicanus hops found growing wild in the dry mountain regions of New Mexico.
