Avery Tangerine Quad Aged in Bourbon Barrels joins ‘Botanicals & Barrels’ series

BeerPulse - Thu, 12/08/2016 - 06:02

[Press Release:]

(Boulder, CO) — Avery Brewing Company, a Boulder, CO based craft brewery and maker of White Rascal Belgian-Style White Ale is thrilled to announce the addition of its Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tangerine Quadruple Ale that will add to the wildly popular Raspberry Sour and Vanilla Bean Stout that currently make up the “Botanicals & Barrels” series. Tangerine Quad is a full-bodied ale that layers notes of rich dark-fruit, vanilla, and caramel with a burst of tangerine peel.

By mid-2017, the “Botanicals & Barrels” series will consist of six barrel-aged beers including the addition of Apricot Sour, Ginger Sour, and Coconut Porter. These six beers all have two things in common. First, they are all aged in barrels and second, they all consist of just one ingredient outside of the standard grain, hops, yeast, and water recipe.

“The interesting thing about our Botanicals & Barrels series is that as beautiful and simple as the final beer is, it is the culmination of an insanely complex and intricate process”, says Travis Rupp, Avery’s resident Beer Archaeologist and head of the Barrel Aging program, “It’s both an art and a science to allow the menagerie of competing flavors in the beer and the barrels to be married together and end up in a masterfully blended barrel-aged beer”.

The inspiration behind the Tangerine Quad Ale was from a “tap-room rarity” beer called Mondo Roboticus that was released in the beginning of 2016 at the Avery brewery. “The bourbon barrel-aged, blood orange peel quadruple ale, called Mondo Roboticus, was delicious and beloved at our tap-room”, says Rupp, “so we decided to make it on a larger scale so that everyone could experience how complex and delicious it is. We are thrilled with how it turned out when using tangerine peel.”

Avery’s Tangerine Quad Ale will be available year-round in 22 ounce bottles and will be distributed nationally.

About Avery Brewing Company:
Avery Brewing Company is a family-owned craft brewery in Boulder, Colorado. Since 1993, Avery has pioneered innovative beers by blending the art and science of brewing with ingenuity, creativity, and boldness. Avery bottles and cans more than 40 beers a year including White Rascal Belgian-Style White Ale, The Maharaja Imperial IPA, and Tweak. Craft your journey at averybrewing.com.

New Belgium Voodoo Ranger line launches this month ahead of batch of new releases

BeerPulse - Wed, 12/07/2016 - 14:36

[Press Release:]

New Belgium Brewing Reveals Fresh Hits and a New Bag of Tricks for 2017 – New releases and portfolio tweaks keep the innovation flowing

(Fort Collins, CO) – 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.”

New beers will release throughout December ’16 and January ’17 and include:

Voodoo Ranger IPA – Bursting with tropical aromas and juicy fruit flavors from Mosaic and Amarillo hops, this golden IPA is perfectly bitter with a refreshing finish. 7% ABV, 52 IBUs. Available in 12-oz bottles and cans and draft.

Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA – a bold imperial IPA with a rare blend of Mosaic, Calypso, Bravo, and Delta hops creates an explosion of fresh cut pine and citrus flavors. 9% ABV and 85 IBUs. Available in 12-oz bottles and draft.

Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Ale – A brilliantly balanced pale ale packed with citrus and tropical fruit flavors from eight different hops. 5.5% ABV, 35 IBUs. Available in 12-oz bottles and cans and draft.

Dayblazer Easygoing Ale – A refreshing golden ale with a slightly sweet, crisp finish and notes of honeycomb. 4.8% ABV. Available in 12-, 15-, and 24-pk 12-oz cans and (for the first time ever from New Belgium) 24-oz single cans.

Citradelic Exotic Lime Ale – A crisp golden ale bursting with juicy Persian lime, fresh coriander and a hint of cracked black pepper. 5.3% ABV. Available in 12oz bottles only.

Tartastic Lemon Ginger Sour Ale – a refreshing tank soured ale with the lip-tingling sweet and sour flavors of lemon and ginger. 4.8% ABV. Available in 12-oz bottles and cans as well as draft.

New Belgium Bohemian Pilsener – Elegantly simple and crisp, this pilsener is clean and easy-drinking with a light, spicy noble hop bite. 4.8% ABV. Available in 12-oz bottles.

New beers will release now thru mid-January 2017. Please visit http://www.newbelgium.com for further information.
