FORT COLLINS, CO – Pioneering U.S. craft brewery New Belgium Brewing will soon be selling its beer in Canada for the first time.
In a press release issued earlier this month, it was announced that the brewery will be on hand to pour beer at the Great Canadian Beer Festival in Victoria on September 6th, after which three New Belgium brands – Fat Tire Amber Ale, Ranger IPA and a seasonal release – will be available in 6 packs and on draught throughout British Columbia. These will be followed in December by Rampant Imperial IPA and limited releases of beers from the Lips of Faith, Hop Kitchen and Trip series.
New Belgium has partnered with import agency Beerthirst for the British Columbia market. Distribution plans for other Canadian provinces have not been announced.
