We hinted at it before but now it’s official: we are collaborating with our good friends at New Belgium Brewing right now! We will be apart of their awesome Lips of Faith Series. Then New Belgium will be finally distributing to Florida! Hooray! Initial plans are for this beer to go wide and far. As for the beer itself, it has a Belgian yeast, tons of citrus hops, some peppers and Spanish cedar…sounds like a winner.
Based on the photo below, it sure looks like the beer is ready to go. Not to mention, New Belgium launches distribution in Florida this week.
As for the beer, it just received label approval. Some states require federal label approval before they will clear it so it may take some time to get some markets. Label copy:
We’re about to light up Florida with this Cigar City collaborative brew. Our Belgian yeast tangos with Anaheim and Marash peppers along with loads of citrusy hops to create an ale full of spice. Aged on Spanish cedar to salute our mutual love for wood!
A New Belgium spokesman recently told BeerPulse that the De Dolle collaboration is still on track for the fourth quarter.
An email is out to New Belgium requesting more information.
