New Belgium Winter Seasonal: Accumulation

AccumulationLabel_F

Every couple of years, New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins, CO) switches up their seasonal releases. It keeps the brewers creative, and keeps you the drinker entertained and full of flavor. That’s where this story starts to accumulate (pun). In the works for colder weather is Accumulation, a white IPA. Not every cold weather beer has to be a stout right? White IPAs are brewed with a large amount of wheat malt. Wheat softens the mouthfeel, making the beer smoother, creamier.

ACCUMULATION White IPA was inspired by the white beauty that falls each winter from our Colorado sky. Flurries of Mosaic and Amarillo hops bring soft fruit and citrus flavor, followed by a layer of bitter. Piled high in IBUS, Accumulation will make your winter brighter. 

Style: White IPA
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft

    why are you brewing a summer ipa for the winter…..snow day was the perfect combination of cascade/centennial hops with midnight wheat…….that beer was made for winter!!!!!

    I really liked your 2 below a few years back.This new one is good too!!!!

  • Austin Beer Drinker

    While I am all for keeping brewers creative, how about keeping customers happy?
    As mentioned by Tony and John, 2 Below and Snow Day were good winter seasonals. I consider a white IPA to be more of a summer beer.

    Any idea for a good food pairing with this

    I am hearing you on the summer qualities that this beer possesses & I agree. However, this beer is festive & that quality may set it apart. Besides, there are a bunch of really good winter beers of the more traditional variety. NB may have just set themselves apart from the crowd.

    i am deeply saddened by the loss of my good friend snow day. he, or was it a she, will be truly missed.

    I guess since I drank Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy right up until the end of November, New Belgium’s Accumulation White Ale is a perfect beer to transition to winter. I like this white IPA.
