Join us at Flying Pig Bistro for a night featuring New Belgium Brewing Company
New Belgium opened in 1991 after Jeff Lebesch, the brewery's founder, took his home brewing passion commercially. In 2011, it produced 712,800 barrels of its various labels. As of 2012, it was the third-largest craft brewery and eighth-largest overall brewery in the United States.
· SUMMER HELLES LAGER: The word “Helles” is German for “The Light One” and describes this beer’s color. At 5.0%, this traditionally German-style Lager has a cereal-like maltiness, balanced by the grassy bite of Hallertau and Tettnang hops. Like most European lagers, it finished clean, and dry. (5.0% ABV)
· HOP KITCHEN “ODELL COLLABERATION PALE ALE”: We teamed up with our Fort Collins neighbors, Odell Brewing for a hoppy collaboration. This beer uses some Fawcett malt we borrowed from Odell, which complements our favored Centennial, Cascade and Citra hops. (6.7% ABV // 55 IBU)
· RAMPANT IMPERIAL IPA: A fresh take on the Imperial IPA style, Rampant pours a pure copper and carries the sheen of a rightly hopped beer. The Mosaic and Calypso hops bring stonefruit to the front seat, and the addition of Centennials nod towards citrus for a well-rounded aroma. These hops lend bright, heavy peach tones and a profoundly bitter bite. There is some malt sweetness to stand this beer up, and Rampant's finish is bone-dry. (8.5% ABV // 85 IBU)
· 2014 LA FOLIE SOUR BROWN ALE: The flagship of our sour beer program, La Folie is as special as it is rare. This wood aged beer rests in French Oak barrels between one and three years before being bottled. Our La Folie is well layered and complex with sour apple notes, a dry effervescence, and earthy undertones. (7% ABV // 18 IBU)
· LIPS OF FAITH "3 FLOYDS COLLABORATION" GRATZER: It's not dead, but Gratzer is definitely a long-buried style from Poland. Full of bold flavors from oak-smoked wheat, and along with Midnight Wheat, this beer presents a pure black pour. A subtle, spicy note from the Polish Lublin hops hides in the aroma, just below the dark and smoky surface. Despite all appearances, the Gratzer is very drinkable with a nice, light body. (4.5% ABV // 30 IBU)
· LIPS OF FAITH “GRUIT ALE”: With our Gruit, what was old is now new, it's all about revisiting the ancient craft of bittering with herb mixtures, not hops. In here horehound, bog myrtle, yarrow, wormwood and elderflowers get together with rich malts to create a bitter, dry, velvet-like sweetness. The Belgian yeast lends nice peppery esters and a “Saison-like” finish.
