I see fresh, green shoots in the beer industry almost everywhere I travel, and a visit to Belfast, Northern Ireland this past weekend proved no different. Boundary Brewing, a cooperative with just barely 1000 owner-members, celebrated its first year by inviting some of its best friends over to the brewery for a collaboration.
Folks from breweries like Otterbank, Yellowbelly, and The White Hag drove up from the south to produce a Double IPA. Of course, they also shared a fridge full of the most interesting beers they could find, including Tired Hands Ourison, Boon Black Label Oude Geuze, and a 2012 Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise. Boundary's story is a great one, and I look forward to telling it in full soon.
