This should pretty much confirm the rumor, New Belgium will replace Hoptober with Red Hoptober this fall. It’s not too surprising. The brewery changes up its seasonals every couple of years.
A pleasing ale for the harvest season, Red Hoptober is pitched with Centennial, Cascade, and Eldorado Red hops. It’s the perfect sipper for these last, fevered days of summer and the cooling, coming autumn nights. Bold and delicious, Red Hoptober has just enough bitter to delight. Crack one open, sit back and enjoy the season’s change.
