Collab Chronicle: Follow the breweries competing in the 2016 In Cahoots!

Surly Brewing Company & Bent Paddle Brewing Co.

Mother of the Gut Ale is “going to smell like it can heal you,” according to Bent Paddle Brewing Company brewer Bjorn Erickson. That’s because the Belgian-style pale ale is infused with chamomile.

Ben Smith, a lead brewer at Surly Brewing, said each brewery was thinking of a botanical vibe when their collaboration was discussed. Even though both breweries were on the same page from the start, multiple iterations were explored before the chamomile concept was developed.

“It’s a fun ingredient and readily available,” Erickson says. “It’s going to be a great summer drinking beer. This beer is going to be bright, fresh, and popping; fruity with a nice herbal twist.”
