Does it get any sunnier than two people in love? Sunshine Wheat came into the world as Wedding Wheat, a beer Jeff brewed in celebration of his
wedding to Kim. A filtered wheat beer, Sunshine Wheat swirls in the mouth with ripples of coriander and orange peel tartness, settling into
a sea of honey and apple tones.

Ever met a New Belgium Beer Ranger? They are our beloved folks out in the field. Spanning all 26 of our states from the Pacific to the Atlantic,
our Beer Rangers do their best to protect, to pour and to partake. And explore many a beer from many a brewery, they do. The fellows up in
the Northwest kept calling for "more hops!" Soon it became a common theme across the land. Rangers, fans and craft lovers everywhere were searching
for hoppier beers.
So, here it finally is - New Belgium's foray into the true American India Pale Ales. Bring out the hops! This clear amber beauty bursts at the
starting gate with an abundance of hops: Cascade (citrus), Chinook (floral/citrus), and Simcoe (fruity) lead off the beer, with Cascade added
again for an intense dry hop flavor. Brewed with pale and dark caramel malts that harmonize the hop flavor from start to finish, Ranger is
a sessionable splendor for all you hopinistas. Thank your Beer Ranger!
ABV: 6.5%. IBUs: 70.
1554 Black Ale
Born of a flood and centuries-old Belgian text, 1554 Enlightened Black Ale uses a light lager yeast strain and dark chocolaty malts to redefine
what dark beer can be. In 1997, a Fort Collins flood destroyed the original recipe our researcher, Phil Benstein, found in the library. So
Phil and brewmaster, Peter Bouckaert, traveled to Belgium to retrieve this unique style lost to the ages. Their first challenge was deciphering
antiquated script and outdated units of measurement, but trial and error (and many months of in-house sampling) culminated in 1554, a highly
quaffable dark beer with a moderate body and mouthfeel.
ABV: 5.5%. IBUs: 27.4.
Climb on in and grab a paddle. Our first foray into lagered beers, Blue-Paddle Pilsner-Lager, is a Czech style pilsner with a refreshing crispness
from noble hops and a rich, malty finish. "Blue Paddle" refers to the implement our 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
ABV: 4.8%. IBUs: 32.5.
Somersault Ale is a fun roll around on the tongue and a perfect, summer lounge-around beer that is easy to drink. Color is blonde with a suggestion
of amber. Somersault tumbles out with citrus aroma from Centennial hops, a tuck of soft apricot fruitiness, completed by a smooth, upright
finish with oats that were fermented in a long, slow mash. Somersaults all around!
ABV : 5.2%.
Trippel Belgian Style Ale
Our Trippel Belgian Style Ale (pronounced triple) opens with a bold blast of hops that slowly gives way to the fruity esters implied by our Belgian
yeast strain. In the Belgian tradition of brewing singles, doubles and triples, Trippel is the strongest with the longest fermentation. Remarkably
smooth and complex, our bottle-conditioned Trippel is spiced with a trace of coriander.
Try with: Steak dinner, brussel sprouts, smoked salmon, creamy blue cheese.
ABV: 7.8% IBUs: 25
Named in honor of our co-founder's bike trip through Europe, marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer's home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Together with co-founder Kim Jordan, they traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire won fans with its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness. Fat Tire: Pairs well with people.
Snap! You just captured an unfiltered wheat beer full of refreshment and a flash of tart at the finish. Smile-inducing aromas of citrus hops jump from the nose, accompanied by the sweetness of coriander and grains of paradise. Brewed with wheat and pale malt, Snapshot beer pours a hazy, lemon-yellow with bright-white lacing. But the real enticement is the snap of tart. New Belgium’s affinity for sour beers led to the in-process blending of lactobacillus to pucker up Snapshot’s base. An extra step to acidify and beautify and get this beer ready for its close up.
