Christmas came early for local beer lovers this year. Accomplice Beer Company, Danielmark's Brewing Company, Freedom's Edge Brewing and the Wyoming Malting Company recently announced the arrival of their new "Cheyenne a Trois".

The new beer is the result of a collaborative effort between the craft breweries. After considerng several ideas, they agreed to create a Belgian Tripel. The tripel is widely considered among the most complex styles in the world and is known for its malty, sweet flavor and high alcohol content.

They hope the "Cheyenne a Trois" will be the first of many collective projects for the burgeoning local craft brewing community. The seasonal selection will be offered at each brewery, while supplies last.
