Blue Paddle by New Belgium Brewing Company in Colorado, United States

About Blue Paddle by New Belgium Brewing Company

Climb on in and grab a paddle. New Beligium's first foray into lagers, Blue Paddle is a Czech style pilsener with a refreshing crispness from noble hops and a rich, malty finish. Blue Paddle refers to the implement that the warehouse manager’s Grandma once used to lovingly paddle his ass when she caught him stealing sips of her beer. With more body than a traditional Belgian pils, Blue Paddle is reflective of Europe’s finest pilseners.
