New Belgium Brewing Announces 2017 Releases (New Beers & New Names)

NBLogoFrom New Belgium:

(Fort Collins, CO ) New Belgium Brewing rolls into 2017 with four new year-round releases and a few surprise tweaks to existing brands. Fresh out of the gate are Dayblazer Easygoing Ale, Citradelic Exotic Lime Ale, Tartastic Lemon Ginger Sour and Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Ale. A new line of hoppy beers under the Voodoo Ranger trademark is also being introduced.  Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Ale will launch first & Ranger IPA and Rampant Imperial IPA will evolve into Voodoo Ranger IPA & Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA to release immediately after. Blue Paddle Pilsener paves the way for New Belgium Bohemian Pilsener. To make room for all these new flavors, Snapshot Wheat, Slow Ride Session IPA and Shift Pale Lager will roll off into the sunset (at least for now). In a purely cosmetic tweak, Sunshine Wheat will be newly adorned with a Colorado Flag to signify its roots.

“This is our most ambitious portfolio re-imagining since our beginnings,” said New Belgium Brewing spokesperson, Bryan Simpson. “We’ve got a lot of excitement, momentum, & energy coming out of the pilot system and that makes for a bounty of great beers with interesting twists. We are very much back into experimentation and risk taking and that is hugely energizing for the whole brewery. 2017 is shaping up to be an awesome year for drinking beer.”

New beers will release throughout December ’16 and January ’17 and include:
