HOW did I stumble on this only now? (Busy, traveling, and not getting out enough anyway, to be honest.) A couple “guys from Brussels” according to one blog, designed four recipes with different characters, got ‘em contract brewed and set them loose on patrons in a group of Brussels bars to vote for their favorite. The winner will get brewed up again and put on the market as the launch of sort of "community brewery." http://beerproject.be I know it all sounds a bit collectivist, going against the rugged individualist culture of the artisan brewery doing just what he likes. But as a one-off gimmick, I can get behind this. The winner was Delta, which sounded like not the most adventurous option — a quaffable, approachable, fresh, citrus-y and decently hopped golden ale. I liked it fine but wish I’d tried the others. Any reports out there? And what do you think about crowd-sourcing a beer?
