New Belgium Le Terroir returns to the brewery’s Vintage Sour series

New Belgium Le Terroir 2018

New Belgium Le Terroir, one of the brewery’s most popular wood-aged sour ales, has returned to the brewery’s portfolio.

Le Terroir (French, meaning soil or land) first debuted in 2011, under the watch of Peter Bouckaert, who has since departed the brewery for Purpose Brewing & Cellars. Previously bottled as a Lips of Faith release, Le Terroir is a dry-hopped American Wild Ale.

Le Terroir is a French term meaning ‘of the earth’ and is frequently used to reference the natural, environmental conditions that affect beer. So it is with our Wood Cellar and the foeders in which Le Terroir is created. These oak barrels combine nature and craftsmanship to age our sour beer in varying temperatures, humidity, and vibrations. Coupled with dry-hopping using fruit-forward and experimental hops, Le Terroir is a beer that rewards differently every time you experience it.

New Belgium Le Terroir has moved from 22-ounce bottles to 375 milliliter corked and caged bottles.

Style: American Wild Ale
Hops: Nugget, Amarillo, Strata (Dry-Hop)
Malts: Pale, Wheat, Caramel-80, Carapils, Oats

Availability: 375ml Bottles, Draft.

7.5% ABV

An IPA that’s part sports drink. Avery Go Play IPA

Avery Go Play IPA

Avery Go Play IPA joins the Boulder, Colorado brewery’s year-round lineup this month.

Brewery founder Adam Avery wanted to create a beer like this for years. A full-flavored, “bold” India pale ale that still sports a lower alcohol by volume and is perfect for outdoor activities.

How does the brewery achieve this? Generous dry-hopping with dank and tropical hops like  Vic Secret, Idaho 7, and Simcoe, plus an addition of sodium and potassium (think sports drinks). Avery calls the beer “IPA-Ade”.

…The great thing is about Go Play IPA is that it doesn’t matter if you are out crushing a 100-mile bike ride, redpointing your hardest climb yet, or simply walking the dog, this beer is designed to get you outside to play.” – Adam Avery

Avery Go Play IPA is available in 12-ounce cans and draft, year-round starting in July 2018.

Style: IPA
Hops: Simcoe, Idaho 7, Columbus, Vic Secret
Malts: 2-Row, Wheat, Vienna

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Debut: July 2018

5.5% ABV
