Bell’s Oatsmobile Ale will be canned this spring

Bell's Oatsmobile Can 2

Bell’s Oatsmobile Ale, launched in April, will be canned in Spring, 2017. This was the first year-round addition since 2010.

Bell’s Oatsmobile Ale, as the name suggests, is brewed with malted oats. The brewery states that the oat addition lends the beer a body you don’t alway get in a session pale ale. The oats plus a dry-hop bill of Mosaic, Citra, and Amarillo makes what Bell’s hopes is a standout low alcohol by volume beer.

“This beer is unique. Aromatics may drive it, but the signature ingredient – oats – are what really makes this beer stand apart and also where the name comes from. It’s approachable and intriguing with a fun personality,” said Bell’s Vice President, Laura Bell.

Bell’s Oatsmobile Ale is currently available in 12 ounce bottles and draft across the brewery’s entire network. 12 ounce cans will be available in the coming spring.

Style: Pale Ale
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Year-Round
Debut: April, 2016
Cans: Spring, 2017

4.3% ABV

New Belgium Dayblazer Easygoing Ale

Not a lot of details are known yet on Dayblazer, other than that the branding is a bit of a departure from a lot of the brewery’s on-going artwork. Additionally, there are artwork variants that include a 12 ounce can and a 24 ounce can. A 24 oz can will be a completely new can size for New Belgium.

New Belgium Dayblazer, aka “Easygoing Ale” will be a 4.8% alcohol by volume beer. The brewery has not yet announced this beer.

NoDa Brewing Par 4 Session IPA

Noda Brewing Par 4 can

NoDa Brewing Par 4 Session IPA is the brewery’s rendition of the “session” IPA.

Despite being low in alcohol by volume this beer is most definitely big in flavor. it’s hoppy and clean (like you’d expect). Those in love with the India pale ale will be right at home with this session beer.

Stay in the zone with a low ABV beer that still packs robust flavor and mouthfeel. Brewed with nearly four pounds of hops per barrel and mashed with oats, Par 4 has a smooth and balanced body to even out the payload delivered by a bouquet of select West Coast hops.

NoDa Brewing Par 4 is a great addition to the brewery’s lineup this year. The once NoDable Series beer was an instant hit when released on tap in summer, 2015. Plus, the awesome Caddyshack reference in the artwork doesn’t hurt.

Style: IPA
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Season release.
Debut (Cans): Spring, 2016

4% ABV, 65 IBUS
