Abtsolution (ABV 9%) Is a collaboration between New Glarus Brewing Co. (Wisconsin, USA) and De Proef Brouwerij (Lochristi. Belgium).

In the true spirit of collaboration, they created a beer based on the classic Belgian Abt style, with unique Wisconsin contributions including Santiam and Chinook hops. To further highlight the Dairy State they added lactose for extra mouthfeel and richness. The result is a dark ale with fruity esters, a velvety smooth palate and balancing wood notes from the use of French and American oak, along with spicy hop notes. This ale is designed to drink now, but they believe it will evolve beautifully over the next 1-2 years.

Abtsolution pours a dark, hazy brownish amber with a tan head and a spicy, fruity aroma. The sweet malt, dark fruit, and peppery yeast scents offer a good indication of the rich, sweet, and complex taste, which is accented with notes of oak and earthy hops. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation.

New Glarus Brewing Company was founded in 1993 in New Glarus, Wisconsin by Deborah and Dan Carey, making Deborah Carey the first woman in the United States to found and operate a brewery. The combination of Dan's brewing professionalism and Deb's business management with their philosophy based on individuality, cooperation, and the use of all natural ingredients to produce world class, handcrafted beers led to steady growth. Selling its products exclusively in Wisconsin, today New Glarus is the 17th largest craft brewer and 25th largest overall brewing company in the United States.

In 1996, Dirk Naudts, a highly regarded brewing engineer and professor, with his wife Saskia Waerniers, created De Proef Brouwerij (the Proof Brewery) in the village of Lochristi, Belgium. The brewery blends modern equipment and technologies with traditional brewing methods, operating predominantly as a rental brewery to develop and produce beers for third parties who do not have their own facilities, or who want to produce experimental small batch beers. Their focus lies exclusively on recipe/product development (never copying existing beers) and beer production.
