New Belgium Releases Summer Seasonal

It seems like every time a summer seasonal release is mentioned, there is snow on the ground somewhere. Same goes for now too. New Belgium Brewing has released their summer seasonal, Summer Helles this week.

“Helles is a style we’ve always enjoyed playing around with,” said Grady Hull, New Belgium’s Assistant Brewmaster. “People really loved it in the festival setting because the drinkability is hard to beat. It pairs well with spicy and savory foods but you could also chase down a butter rum ice cream cone with equally great results.”

Summer Helles got its start as a beer celebrating the 40th anniversary of Telluride’s famed Bluegrass Festival and Rockygrass Festival. Summer Helles popularity got it upgraded.

New Belgium Summer Helles will be available in 12oz bottles and draft from now until July, 2014.
