NEW ON THE SHELF :

  New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale   5.2% 355ml
   Named in honor of our founder    Jeff’s  bike trip through Belgium, Fat   Tire  Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer’s home    brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits,    spices,  esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Jeff found the  Belgian  approach freeing. Upon his return, Jeff created Fat Tire and Abbey  Belgian  Ale, (assuming Abbey would be his big gun). He and his wife, Kim  traveled  around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire’s appeal  quickly  became evident. People liked everything about it. Except the name.  Fat Tire  won fans is in its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors  coasting in  equilibrium with hoppy freshness.

New Belgium Ranger IPA 6.5% 355ml
Ever met a New Belgium Beer Ranger? They are our beloved folks out in
the  field. Spanning all of our states from the Pacific to the Atlantic, our Beer Rangers do their best to protect, to pour and to partake. And explore many
a beer from many a brewery, they do. 

Bring out the hops with  Ranger IPA ! This clear amber India Pale Ale beauty bursts at the starting gate with an abundance of hops: Cascade (citrus), Chinook (floral/citrus), and Simcoe (fruity) lead off the beer, with Cascade added again for an intense dry hop flavor. Brewed with pale and dark caramel malts that harmonize the hop flavor from start to finish, Ranger is a sessionable splendor for all you hopinistas. Thank your Beer Ranger!   RB  =  92

New Belgium 1554 Black Lager 5.6% Dunkel/Tmavy 355ml
 Born of a flood and centuries-old Belgian text, 1554 Black Lager uses a  lager yeast strain and dark chocolaty malts to redefine what dark beer can  be. In 1997, a Fort Collins flood destroyed the original recipe our  researcher, Phil Benstein, found in the library. So Phil and brewmaster,  Peter Bouckaert, traveled to Belgium to retrieve this unique style lost to the  ages. Their first challenge was deciphering antiquated script and outdated  units of measurement, but trial and error (and many months of in-house  sampling) culminated in 1554, a highly quaffable dark beer with a moderate  body and mouthfeel.

 New Belgium La Folie Sour Red/Brown 7% 650ml
 La Folie, French for "the folly," is a beer steeped in New Belgium brewing tradition. This wood-aged, sour brown spends one to three years in big, oak barrels, known as foeders. And when the beer finally hits the glass, La Folie is sharp and sour, full of green apple, cherry, and plum-skin notes. Pouring a deep mahogany, the mouthfeel will get you puckering while the smooth finish will get you smiling. Not a beer for the timid, La Folie is a sour delight that will turn your tongue on its head. Find out why it’s considered one of the best sour beers around.  RB  =  100

Drink well
