New Belgium Brewing Rewinds Time with Latest Hop Kitchen Beer and Springs Forward with a New Seasonal

Both beers go back to New Belgium’s roots for some inspiration

[PRESS RELEASE] Ft. Collins, Colo. – January 15, 2014– New Belgium Brewing reveals two new beers that both take a look back in time. In the Hop Kitchen Series, Rewind pays homage to the brewery’s Belgian roots and the craft-brewing heyday of the early 90’s. The India Pale Ale is brewed with Maris Otter and Special B malts, which give a big sweet background to a palate of Horizon, Willamette and Galena hop varieties. Rewind is 7% ABV.

For the spring seasonal, New Belgium created Spring Blonde. This Belgian-style ale gets its inspiration from the spring trip to Belgium that all employee-owners can experience in honor of their five-year work anniversary. The adventure is a tribute to the bike trip New Belgium’s co-founder Jeff Lebesch took in the late 80’s that inspired him to brew Belgian beers.

Spring Blonde is a golden ale brewed with pale malts. It pours bright copper and holds a strong, white head aloft. Opening with a nose of lemon peel, pepper and a kiss of honey, this ale drinks malty, sweet and wonderful. Nugget hopping pedals towards a dry, lightly bitter finish, perfect for spring or any time. 6% ABV.

New Belgium Spring Blonde“The Spring Blonde is a tribute, an honor to traditional Belgian ales,” said New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull. “Blondes are also a favorite style among New Belgium employee-owners so this beer definitely has special meaning for us.”
