WeldWerks, The Real Dill Release Pickle Beer

Two of Colorado’s top culinary-inspired food and beverage makers have teamed up to produce an unlikely flavor combination: pickles and beer. Inspired by WeldWerks Marketing Manager Lauren Kayl’s love of both, the Greeley brewery looked to their friends at The Real Dill, a Denver-based company that makes artisan pickles and bloody mary mix, to make Kayl’s dream a reality.

“One of my favorite aspects of WeldWerks has always been our commitment to embracing new ideas and our willingness to draw inspiration from any of our co-workers like Lauren,” says WeldWerks Head Brewer Skip Schwartz. “My only condition with this project, though, is that if we’re going to venture into the pickle beer space, it has to be with our close friends at The Real Dill. Their involvement has been crucial in ensuring that we not only craft a pickle beer but that it’s the absolute best pickle beer on the planet.” 

Never a Dill Moment is a 5.5% ABV beer that’s made with 70 gallons of The Real Dill pickles and brine. This unconventional ale is easy drinking and slightly tart with subtle notes of dill and spices. This extremely limited beer will be available on draft at WeldWerks on Friday, Sept. 1, as well as at participating retailers in Colorado.

The dynamic duo previously worked together during the fall of 2021 to create the country’s first barrel-aged bloody mary mix where The Real Dill aged their bestselling bloody mary mix in three of WeldWerks’ Medianoche Imperial Stout barrels and then blended them. This will be WeldWerks’ first pickle beer but hopefully not the last.

“Making something fun and unique is always rewarding, but it is even better to do it with a company like WeldWerks who prides themselves in breaking the mold,” says The Real Dill Co-Founder Tyler DuBois. “We love working with WeldWerks, and welcome any chance we get to collaborate with them, no matter how crazy the idea!”

Never a Dill Moment will be available starting September 1 and will have limited distribution within the front range in Colorado, with some distribution into Summit County and the Western Slope. Check WeldWerks’ Beer Finder to find participating retailers near you.
