New Belgium Releases Folly Packs Featuring Old Cherry Ale

New Belgium Old Cherry AleSay hello to an old friend - New Belgium Old Cherry Ale, but remember, this one only comes with some company. The New Belgium Brewery of Fort Collins Colorado is bringing back one of it's discontinued Belgian beers. A beer that stopped production 10 years ago is back in a new 12-pack mixer collection called "Folly Packs". This isn't the reformulated "Two Cherry" ale that came out in 2001, but rather the original formula from 1995. I caught word from The Full Pint Dot Com and just had to spread the news about one of my favorite local breweries. Old Cherry Ale is described as:

"...an amber ale fermented with dark red Montmorency cherries grown in Washington State. Old Cherry Ale has a rich cherry aroma, and a delicate balance of cherry tartness and barley malt sweetness."

Supposedly, the only way to get your hands on some of this beer is to purchase a "Folly Pack". Reportedly included with the 12-pack are: Fat Tire, 1554 Black Ale and Mothership Wit. You may also be able to find it with some of their new beer Mighty Arrow.

Hurry though, the Old Cherry Ale may only be around for a limited time. It was first brewed in 1995 and last seen in 1998. Don't miss your chance to pick up some of this 6.5% ABV fruity goodness. I'll have to head over to their tasting room to see if this is being served on tap in their tasting room.
