New Belgium Launches New Year-Round Snapshot Wheat Beer

LOVELAND, COLO. — January 30, 2014 — The wait is over! In November 2013, Fort Collins-based company, New Belgium Brewing, announced the upcoming launch of its newest year-round beer, Snapshot Wheat. High Country Beverage started distribution of the anticipated new product throughout Colorado the week of January 27, 2014.

“This is the biggest brand launch for New Belgium that comes along with a new packaged look for their company, “ said Steve Nichols, President of High Country Beverage. “We’re happy to help them get their new product on the shelves for people to enjoy.”

Snapshot has the aromas of citrus hops, accompanied by the sweetness of coriander and grains of paradise. Brewed with wheat and pale malt, Snapshot pours a hazy, lemon-yellow with bright-white lacing. But the real enticement is the snap of tart. New Belgium’s affinity for sour beers led to the in-process blending of lactobacillus to pucker up Snapshot’s base┬¡—an extra step to acidify and beautify this beer.
