  • Which summery New Belgium lager's right for you?

    Mix together a warm summer day, a few crisp beers, and [insert your favorite summer hangout spot], and that’s pretty much the recipe for the good ol’ American Dream, right? Right. While we’ve got a ton of refreshing beers in our line-up that prove ultra-drinkable during the summer months, there’s nothing quite like a thirst-quenching lager to cool down your brow when the sun hits high noon—and we’ve got three perfect lagers to grab this season. But aren’t all lagers the same? No way, pal. Check it out:
    Skinny Dip ABV: 4.2% IBU: 22 What makes it so special? Peaches, Cascade hops, and only 117 calories. So, what’s it like? This light-bodied lager packs a fruity punch, thanks to additions of peach juice and citrusy ...

  • Some things are happening soon, and other things are happening now.

    Here are the details... Soon:  The next and newest Beer Stream is this Wednesday. Matty and I will be talking all about the G. Love Collaboration- Peach Porch Lounger. The live tasting will go over the beer: raw materials, special processes, brewers anecdotes, etc... We'll talk about the history of the beer, the time I drank beer with G. Love, the art on the bottle, etc... And during all the talking we'll be drinking, sharing tasting notes, and generally be making pleasurable noises in regards to this beer. It will be really fun. If you follow the link above you can watch the last stream we did (or bookmark the page for Wednesday's tasting), so you can get the idea of what it is that we're ...

  • The Queen stage brought to you by New Belgium Brewing

    Did you know that the road from Gunnison to Aspen is really long? Today the racers strolled through 130 miles of major Colorado mountains, like Cottonwood and Independence passes, both in one day, and both above 12,000 feet (or, about 3,700 meters for the European readers). Today's distance was so big that, in fact, it was the Queen Stage. The "Queen Stage" is bicycle racer talk for the longest stage of the whole race.

  • Clock out, it's finally time for a SHIFT BEER!

    16oz cans of Shift Beer are taking over the world! Or, at least, I hope they do, because this beer is awesome. April 2 is the official release of Shift (that's today!!!!!), it's packaged in 16oz cans only, and should be available through our entire distribution area as of right now. This is a pale lager, light bodied, but full flavored, 5% ABV. Shift is a session beer, lightly hopped with Nelson Sauvins from New Zealand, and while being a hop forward lager, this beer is very drinkable, no matter your tastes in beer.  I have been talking a little about Shift in recent weeks, here on the blog, and on the ol' Facebook, you know, building a buzz, getting the facts out to you as they ...
