Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) September 6, 2007
Iowa beer lovers are counting the days until September 10 when 22-ounce bombers of New Belgium Brewing's Fat Tire Amber Ale, 1554 Black Ale and Mothership Wit will become available at select bars and liquor stores in Iowa cities including Des Moines, Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Cedar Falls and the Quad Cities.
"The word seems to already be out if RAGBRAI is any indication," said Bryan Simpson, spokesperson from New Belgium. "We are beginning our roll-out with three new packages of some of our favorite beers and we're looking forward to getting some Iowa events rolling in the near future."
New Belgium Brewing is also nationally recognized for its progressive environmental activities. Consumers can enjoy their favorite New Belgium beer even more knowing it was produced where choices like reduced greenhouse emissions, green building techniques and water conservation are a cultural way of life.
About the beers:
Fat Tire Amber Ale
Like the ageless delight of pedaling a bicycle, Fat Tire Amber Ale's appeal is in its feat of balance: Toasty malt flavors (sorta like biscuits just pulled from the oven) coasting in equilibrium with crisp hoppiness. Delicious stability - in the world of sometimes-precarious beer flavors - is perhaps what prompted one consumer to say, "This beer just makes you smile."
Fat Tire's depth of flavor, achieved with neither a disproportionate sway toward hops or malts, tandems well with a full spectrum of today's engaging cuisines. Salmon, dry-aged cheeses, roasted chilies, omelets at midnight, sweet potato French fries and just about anything with grill marks or garlic are just a few of the edibles we like to partner up with our Amber Ale.
1554 Black Ale
Other than being dark in color, 1554 has little in common with Porters or Stouts. The beer is fermented at relatively high temperatures using a European lager yeast that imparts a refreshing, zesty acidity. Chocolate and coffee tones in the nose give way to a surprisingly clean finish. With 1554 we hoped to create a beer similar to what folks enjoyed nearly five-hundred years ago without ignoring five-hundred years of technological innovation.
Mothership Wit Organic Wheat Beer
New Belgium's first organic beer offering, Mothership Wit elevates the zesty Wit or White beers of Belgium with wheat malt, coriander and orange peel spicing - all of which are organically grown. The Mothership experience begins with a cloudy pale yellow appearance capped by a creamy white head. Next is the alluring, slightly spicy, floral nose. The refreshing taste is the result of a gravitational balance of citrus and sour flavors held in suspension by a bright burst of carbonation.
New Belgium beers are now available in 17 states across the West and Midwest. Fat Tire is the brewery's flagship brew, with its other year-round and seasonal Belgian beers recognized for their mature flavors, unique history and high quality ingredients.
