New Belgium & Perennial Artisan Ales Announce Collaborative Brew

Ft. Collins, Colo.— New Belgium Brewing and Perennial Artisan Ales’ collaboration stout creates the perfect pairing of chocolate and beer. Salted Belgian Chocolate Stout is out now through December 31, 2014. This collaboration is the result of a friendship between Lauren Salazar, New Belgium’s wood beer czar and specialty brands manager, and the team at Perennial. This latest addition to New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series is a full-bodied beer that’s perfect for the cooler weather ahead.

Salted Belgian Chocolate Stout combines roasted barley and caramel malts to create a stout with a dark pour and tan head atop. Belgian yeast paired with a chocolate addition inspires rich aromas to complement a coffee tone. The beer has a hint of tobacco and dried fruit, along with a touch of mild salt, which boosts sweetness and enhances a roasty bitterness that every craft stout deserves.

“We wanted to brew a stout with a twist and the result is a decadent treat,” said Salazar. “It’s a fun and highly collaborative beer that combines some of our favorite things in a glass. We loved working with Perennial on this one. You can’t help but sip this stout and think, ‘it doesn’t get much better.’”

Salted Belgian Chocolate Stout is 9 percent ABV and 35 IBUs. It’s available in 22 oz. bombers and on draft. Pricing varies by location. To find New Belgium beers near you, use the New Belgium Libation Location tool:
