In its 20th Year, This Winter Seasonal Continues to Serve Up
Raspberry Tartness and Celebratory Appeal
Ft. Collins, Colo., November 14, 2013 – Whether the holidays bring sunshine, rain or crisp white snow, New Belgium Brewing’s Frambozen has a place on the table. Celebrating its twentieth birthday, Frambozen is one of the few beers released annually by New Belgium, and is named after the Flemish word for raspberries.
In line with the season of tradition, New Belgium annually sends delegates to the Pacific Northwest to select freshly picked raspberries and oversee the process of turning them into a pure juice that the brewers use in fermentation.
Frambozen pops with fresh tart raspberries and is backed by nutty, chocolate and caramel malts. It has 6.5 percent ABV.
“After all these years, Frambozen continues to be a holiday tradition because its flavors pair so well with decadent and delicious meals that bring people together,” said New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull. “It’s only available through the Thanksgiving through New Year season, but it’s always a hit and why we’re excited to celebrate two decades of brewing this one.”
Frambozen is available in most New Belgium markets through January and pricing varies by location.
