Abbey Grand Cru (2008)
There was a time when, for every 1,000 batches at New Belgium, we brewed Abbey Grand Cru. It was our way of honoring our very first and award-winning Abbey Ale.
Take that celebrated recipe, precisely increase the hops and malt and ferment with an authentic Belgian yeast strain, then referment in the bottle to produce natural carbonation, and the result is a Grand Cru worth collecting.
In 2008 we hit our 25,000th batch and brewed the very beer you're holding now to commemorate that milestone. It has since matured in our temperature-controlled cellar, changing deliciously while it awaited this day.
Ships in orders of six (6) or four (4) 22-oz bottles.
We currently ship directly to beer lovers in Washington, D.C., Vermont, Nebraska and Nevada. Orders typically ship within 1-3 business days.
We plan to ship to more states in the near future. Live in Fort Collins or Asheville? Try Cellar Club for exclusive beers and events.
An adult (21+ years old) signature is required to deliver your beer, so make sure someone of legal drinking age is available to sign for your order. For this reason, we recommend shipping orders to your workplace if possible (but if not, don't worry -- a home address will work just fine).
In an effort to reduce the amount of cardboard and other packing waste generated by mail-order products, we ship beer orders in an insulated reusable container from Liviri designed to protect your beer from extreme heat and cold.
