WeldWerks Is Dropping a Triple Collab with Other Half and The Veil, plus two other beers

WeldWerks Brewing Company has gained a lot of recognition and respect since their 2015 inception. Juicy Bits Hazy IPA is a regional household name in the craft beer community, now 5 years down the road. In light of this ongoing success, WeldWerks seems determined as ever to continue to push the envelope as to what flavors can successfully be put into a beer.

This week, the week of Friday June 12th, the flavor-packed brewery continues on their weekly beer mission with three new can/draft releases: Extra Shipper NEIPA, Cereal Keller Kellerbier, and ¡SPONCH! Sour Wheat Ale brewed with ¡SPONCH! cookies.

This week’s releases may be a strange collection to the lay beer drinker, but for the intrepid craft beer enthusiast, they are an adventure in themselves.

The Cereal Keller is an unfiltered Pilsner-style lager, a style which has been making a comeback in popularity as of late. As with most trends, beer styles come in and out of fashion on a seemingly constant basis. Standard lighter lagers were kicked to the wayside when craft beer really started to boom in the United States to make room for the experimental and flavor-packed, but recently, they’ve begun to regain the attention of beer drinkers across the nation.

The ¡SPONCH! Sour description touts an ingredient bill of strawberry puree, toasted coconut, marshmallow, lactose, and ¡SPONCH! Cookies. This type of beer has become a staple for WeldWerks- packing as much flavor into a beer as possible, like a mad scientist mixing vials of liquid by color.

While the Cereal Keller and Sponch Sour are both unique beers, it should be noted that the Extra Shipper IPA is a triple collaboration with The Veil Brewing of Richmond, VA and Other Half Brewing Company out of Brooklyn, NY. Both of these breweries are garnering massive regional respect as well as national attention, and the distance between these three breweries makes for a wide-cast net of exposure for all three. Triple collabs like this one so beautifully illustrate the unique sense of “co-opetition” in the US craft beer industry, setting an example for other industries across the nation.
