Wild Leap Brew Co. Chief Brewing Officer Chris Elliott Talks Alpha Abstraction Vol. 5

We spoke with Wild Leap Brew Co. Chief Brewing Officer Chris Elliott about Alpha Abstraction Vol. 5.

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
Within a few days of canning our first batch of this beer, I saw a post online from the top of Germany’s highest peak, Zugspitze. The person in the picture was holding a can of Alpha Abstraction Vol. 5! It meant a lot to all of us that a fan would go to such great heights to enjoy our beer. Pun intended.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
I really enjoy the aroma on this beer. We use a large amount of Nelson Sauvin, and the white grape really comes through on the nose. It is such a unique and enjoyable hop.

BC: Is this your “desert island beer?”
For sure, This is one beer I never get tired of.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
Grilled fish or chicken with lemon and herb butter complement this beer perfectly.
