New Brew: Backcountry Wilderness Wheat
Updated: Feb 9
Living The Dream Brewing Co. Brews Backcountry Wilderness Wheat for Backcountry Conservation & Education Fund.
The team behind Living the Dream Brewing Co. has long been a supporter of the Backcountry Wilderness Area and the Backcountry Conservation & Education Fund. They kicked off 2021 by taking that a step further and canning the perfect beer to go with our outdoor-loving mission!
Backcountry Wilderness Wheat, which made its debut on draft at Living the Dream in 2019, has a new home in beautiful cans that feature a photo of a bull elk in the Backcountry Wilderness Area, our logo, and most importantly, our mission: To improve wildlife habitat, inspire the next generation of nature stewards, and ignite a lifelong long of the outdoors for all.
Designed to drink as the perfect aprés beer for any outdoor activity, Backcountry Wilderness Wheat is light and refreshing while still full of flavor. “Starting with a thirst-quenching wheat beer, we added the refreshing qualities of real orange zest, coriander, and grains of paradise," Jason Bell, the owner of Living the Dream Brewing Co., explains. "We finished with just enough hops to balance everything out and the beer comes in at an easy-drinking 4.6% ABV."
You can get the 12oz can six-packs at the Living the Dream taproom and will be available at select locations across the Front Range in mid-January. If you don't see it at your local liquor store, ask for it! And as if collaborating on this awesome beer isn't exciting enough, Living the Dream Brewing Co. is donating 10% of sales directly to the Backcountry Conservation & Education Fund to support our mission!
In 2020, Living The Dream raised $2600 for the Backcountry Wilderness Area through Beer for Bucks. “As Living the Dream Brewing continues to grow, it’s important to us that our community involvement grows too. Working with the great people at the Backcountry Conservation & Education Fund to put this beer in the market is the perfect way for us to start the new year.”
We couldn't agree more!
