Ft. Collins, Colo. –New Belgium Brewing’s new fall seasonal celebrates Tour de Fat, the brewery’s traveling festival of bikes, beer and bemusement. As the ten-city tour begins the second half of the 2014 schedule this American-style Pale Ale will also hit the road and be available in New Belgium markets across the country through October. At six percent ABV and 38 IBUs, this beer is a go-to for the fall. Pale malt, chocolate rye and caramel add a slight bitter-sweet flavor and a red hue to the pour. Hops dominate its aroma with pine, floral, tangerine, lemon rind and tropical fruit notes.
“This well-balanced, crisp beer is perfect for fall,” said New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster, Grady Hull. “It’s not spiced like a lot of other fall beers, instead, Tour de Fall is dry-hopped with two different hop varieties, making it refreshing, light and easy to drink.”
Tour de Fall is available in 12 oz. bottles and on draft. Pricing varies by location.
In addition to Tour de Fall, this fall New Belgium brings back Saison Harvest Ale in the new Fall Folly Packs. In the Can Folly Packs 1554 Black Lager, is joining the mix – its can debut. Last year’s Pumpkick Pumpkin Ale will also be available in limited release.
