Wayward Owl Brewing Company (3940 Thalia St., 504-827-1646; www.waywardowlbrewing.com) and the University of New Orleans have teamed up on a new beer. Privateer Pale Ale, a 5 percent alcohol-by-volume Belgian-style pale ale, was introduced last week at the Broadmoor brewery.
"This collaboration has been a really fun process, and we could not be more excited to have been chosen to represent the Privateers," brewery founder and head brewer Justin Boswell said in a prepared statement.
Boswell described the beer's tasting notes as having a "malty but slightly dry and spicy fruit aroma."
It's the year-old brewery's sixth beer to be offered year-round, and the university's first officially licensed beer. It is available at the brewery's taproom and The Cove on UNO's campus, along with some bars in New Orleans, Metairie and the Northshore. By years' end, it will be offered at Mid-City beer emporium 504 Craft Beer Reserve, Rouses, Breaux Mart and Whole Foods Market.
