New Belgium Brewing’s Hoptober Golden Ale Now Available

Hoptober Golden AleFT COLLINS, CO — Hoptober Golden Ale, New Belgium Brewing’s fall seasonal, is ushering in the cooler fall months with its complex hop profile and depth of flavor. Hoptober, which New Belgium originally introduced in 2009, is a medium-bodied ale that brings five hops and four malts together to create a creamy mouthfeel.

Centennial, Cascade, Sterling, Willamette and Glacier hops form a bonfire of citrus notes, fruity cheers and a bold finale in this multifaceted fall seasonal, which also combines pale and wheat malt mashed with rye and oats.

“Hoptober embraces the shift to fall with an abundance of flavors,” said Bryan Simpson, New Belgium spokesperson. “The variety of hops make it a great fall beer, with the perfect balance to quench your thirst after a fall bike ride.”

Hoptober, with 40 IBUs and six percent ABV, is available through October in most states where New Belgium is sold. To locate Hoptober in your area using New Belgium’s Libation Locator or for suggested food pairings and additional information about Hoptober, visit
