You might have already seen New Belgium’s newest Dig Pale Ale on shelves where you live. Dig replaced Mighty Arrow as the spring seasonal. (Lets just say early, early, spring.) Check out New Belgium’s backstory on Dig, along with a video.
Ft. Collins, CO, January 31, 2012 — New Belgium Brewing (www.newbelgium.com) today announced the arrival of its 2012 spring seasonal, Dig Pale Ale. Dig offers a robust line-up of hops, opening with the Sorachi Ace strain, which provides a fresh citric snap. Nelson Sauvin hops follow with bursts of passion fruit, mango and peach. Cascade and Centennial hops round out this crisp pale ale. Dig is available in most New Belgium markets through April and ABV is 5.6 percent.
With a nod to community-supported agriculture, Dig’s label, name and local promotions will focus on sustainable farming. Keep an eye on New Belgium’s Facebook page and your local Ranger Facebook page to learn more about agriculture-focused events and organizations in your neck of the woods.
“Dig celebrates the medley of ingredients and hard work necessary to yield the beer and food we love,” said New Belgium brewer Grady Hull. “With Dig in hand, we’d like to toast the farmers and land which make what we do possible.”
