"25 years ago we started brewing Fat Tire Belgian Style Ale. It became an iconic beer, and a symbol synonymous with craft. Now, for the first time, we’re adding a new beer to the Fat Tire family: Fat Tire Belgian White. Taking inspiration from our decades of experience brewing Belgian beers, Fat Tire Belgian White is made with Seville oranges and Indian coriander, both freshly ground less than a mile from our Fort Collins brewery. It’s a fresh, perfectly sweet, natural tasting Belgian White." Keep your eyes peeled for it starting August 1st!
Boulevard Brewing has announced a $10 million expansion to add a canning line to the Kansas City Brewery. Sales of Boulevard's canned offerings have grown substantially since they were first released three years ago. Unfiltered Wheat, Heavy Lifting IPA, Ginger Lemon Radler, Tropical Pale Ale and American Kolsch are currently being canned at Coldspring Brewery in Minnesota and Boulevard's sister brewery, Firestone Walker, in California; but demand for Boulevard cans has outstripped the capacity of those two facilities necessitating a dedicated canning line in KC.
