New Belgium’s Fat Tire series is expanding with Fat Tire White Ale

New Belgium Fat Tire White Ale

New Belgium Fat Tire White Ale, a new addition to the brewery’s “Fat Tire” family, debuts in August.

Later this summer, ordering a Fat Tire won’t be limiting your choices to just the iconic amber ale. For the first time in 25 years, New Belgium is putting a true Belgian-style white ale into full scale production.

The authentic white ale will feature Seville orange peel and coriander from Fort Collins, Colorado based Old Town Spice Shop, less than a mile from the brewery. New Belgium selected Seville oranges over Valencia oranges because thanks to their ‘brighter” aroma, and less cloying sweetness.

“Fat Tire Belgian White captures the spirit and flavor of a truly authentic Belgian White beer” – Peter Bouckaert, New Belgium’s Belgian Brewmaster

New Belgium Fat Tire White Ale will be available in 12 ounce bottles, 12 ounce cans, and draft starting August 1st.

The 3rd “Skull”: Laughing Skull White Ale

Laughing Skull White Ale

The “Laughing Skull” brand is a bit of Atlanta brewing history. When the city first saw the beer, a collaboration with Red Brick Brewing and “The Vortex” (home to one of Atlanta’s best burgers), it was a bohemian pilsner. Honestly, a craft pilsner was a bit ahead of it’s time near 15 years ago, and slumping sales killed it off.

A few years ago, Red Brick resurrected the brand, reinventing it as an amber ale, bring success back to the “Laughing Skull” lineup. So much so, a second beer, Laughing Skull Craft Lager was added shortly after.

This week a third release, Laughing Skull White Ale joins Skull lineup.

The brewery’s hometown isn’t the first to taste this white ale. The country of South Korea has had it for a while, as Red Brick originally brewed this for their South Korean distributor.

White Ale was originally made specifically for our South Korean distributor, but it was so well received both overseas and at the brewery that we knew we needed to release it domestically. We first started pouring it at the brewery in June of 2016 and it has quickly become a crowd favorite.” – Garett Lockhart, President & Brewmaster

Red Brick White Ale is available in 12 ounce cans and draft.

Style: White Ale
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.

Heavy Seas Partner Ships Rye Wit, a collaboration with Terrapin

Heavy Seas Partner Ships Rye Wit

Heavy Seas Partner Ships Rye Wit, a collaboration with Athens, Georgia based Terrapin Beer Co. is coming this August.

First off, let me tell you Terrapin’s co-founder and brewmaster “Spike” Bucowski loves brewing with rye. Examples – Terrapin Rye Pale, Terrapin Rye Cubed, even the Terrapin/Left Hand Terra-ryezd from 2009. Don’t be surprised that this new collaboration has rye in it.

Heavy Seas Partner Ships Rye Wit is actually a barrel-aged rye wit, aged in white wine barrels for sixteen weeks. The added wine nuance to this beer is fairly unique for the style.

With aromas of light fruit, spice, and citrus, balanced by a spicy malt backbone, the third installment in the Partner Ships series is sure to delight the senses.

Lagunitas Stoopid Wit coming this month

Lagunitas Stoopid Wit bottle

Lagunitas Stoopid Wit will join the brewery’s seasonal lineup this month. A beer loosely based on a few styles.

This week we tried an early sample of this upcoming release. Lagunitas Stoopid Wit is a bit hoppy, like Hop Stoopid. It’s soft and wheat-y like a Belgian witbier. Let’s say it’s got a foot in both worlds.

This UNFILTERED Belgian-ish Wit-ly-esque-ish-ness brew features a dry twang of hoppy bitterness and is perfect for the summertime drinkin’!

Lagunitas Stoopid Wit will be a 12 ounce bottle and draft offering. More details coming soon.

Style: Witbier
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: July, 2016
