Red Hoptober Debuts as New Belgium’s Fall Seasonal

FORT COLLINS, CO. – New Belgium Brewing’s (www.newbelgium.com) new fall seasonal, Red Hoptober, is now available, offering a taste of autumn with cooler temperatures just around the corner.

Red Hoptober is a dark garnet ale with a bright head and three varieties of hops. El Dorado hops from Central Washington are bold and present with a distinct, piney flavor as well as citrus notes. The caramel malt and roasted barley provide a sturdy backbone. Centennial and Cascade hops bring more hints of citrus, and a subtle roasty tone follows through each sip.

“Fall seasonals are a terrific transition from hot weather’s lighter beers into the warm embrace of winter beers,” says New Belgium Brewer Grady Hull. “Red Hoptober is perfect for a cool day fishing or a relaxing night around the campfire.”

Red Hoptober is 6% ABV, 45 IBUs and is available in most New Belgium markets now through October.
