New Belgium Hop Stout joins the brewery’s Hop Kitchen Series here at the end of September.
New Belgium Hop Stout is described by the brewery as one of the “burliest” beers in the Kitchen Series. The 8% imperial stout boasts a bitter 100 IBU (international bitterness units) rating. That’s imperial IPA territory.
“We wanted a wickedly hoppy and deeply malty stout to celebrate the fall season,” said Grady Hull, Assistant Brewmaster of New Belgium Brewing. “Hop Stout draws you into the malty woodwork of a traditional stout and then the hops storm in. It’s a really incredible, complex beer for those seeking a little more adventure with the change of seasons.”
New Belgium Hop Stout is a draft only offering, hitting taps now until it runs dry.
