“A true collaboration beer is much more than just a beer, it’s a process,” said Steve Kurowski, director of operations for the Colorado Brewers Guild. “There are a ton of reasons two breweries may want to work together. The owners may be friends and have a fun idea they want to explore or it could be two breweries who both specialize in the same style of beer or maybe it’s the brewery around the corner or even a brewery half way across the world. Whatever the reason, the true answer is simple, brewers collaborate because they can.”
