Big news fresh out of Colorado this week as we officially got word that New Belgium Brewing, famous for their flagship beer Fat Tire, and the country’s fourth largest brewer will be arriving in Massachusetts in 2017.
This will make the Bay State the 46th state in their distribution and they will start by releasing some of their year-round releases to begin, alongside a few of their limited 22oz releases as well. No word on whether or not their collaborations with Ben & Jerry’s will make it but La Folie has been confirmed as being one of the SKUs that will be coming, alongside Fat Tire, Citradelic IPA and Ranger IPA. More than a dozen different ones will eventually make their way here and seasonals will be joining that lineup as well.
And while the brewery is headquartered out of Fort Collins out in Colorado, they recently expanded with another production facility out in Asheville Carolina which has enabled them to scale for their exploding growth and demand.
You can expect to see the beers arrive in mid-February so stay tuned for more updates.
Big news coming out of Beverly today as Gentile Brewing have announced that they’ll be making their big opening on this upcoming Friday at 4PM.
