Ft. Collins, Colo. August 1, 2017 – New Belgium Brewing’s Fat Tire Belgian White is rolling out nationwide this month. For the first time in twenty-six years Fat Tire, an American craft beer icon, expands its trademark family by adding Fat Tire Belgian White. The new addition is a light-bodied unfiltered wheat ale brewed with juicy Seville orange peel and freshly ground coriander. It offers the perfect balance of refreshment and drinkability with just a hint of sweetness.
“Fat Tire Belgian White is a perfect reflection of our rich history and decades of experience brewing Belgian-style beers,” said New Belgium Brewer Cody Reif. “We listened to what people want in a Belgian White and incorporated all that feedback into this beer. It definitely captures the spirit of everything we believe an authentic Belgian White should be, and what so many desire – subtle sweetness and light bodied.”
Freshly ground Indian coriander, sourced from Old Town Spice Shop in Ft. Collins, Colo., which is less than a mile from New Belgium, paired with juicy Seville orange peel gives Fat Tire Belgian White its bright, yet mild sweetness. The beer also features a blend of Nugget Hops for bittering and Cascade Hops for aroma.
Fat Tire Belgian White is available in 12oz. bottles, on draft, and in can variety packs.
