FORT COLLINS, Colo.—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 and Ranger IPA and Rampant Imperial IPA will evolve into Voodoo Ranger IPA and 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 reimagining since our
beginnings,” said New Belgium Brewing spokesperson, Bryan Simpson.
"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.”
