New Belgium Brewing has announced a a full line of new brews for 2017. They are being released as we speak and continuing into the new year.
They are releasing four new year-rounds and turning a few oldies into newbies.
This is our most ambitious portfolio re-imagining since our beginnings. We’ve got a lot of excitement, momentum, and 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.

Sticking with the Pilsener paddle theme The Blue Paddle Pilsener will become New Belgium Bohemian Pilsener (check out the label to see the common paddle theme). Unfortunately some of our old favorites have to ride off into the sunset to make room for these new flavors. Snapshot Wheat, Slow Ride Session IPA and Shift Pale Lager will be heading to that brewery in the sky.
Sunshine Wheat will be sticking around but getting a makeover with a Colorado State Flag to signify its roots.
