If you haven’t already begun shopping for the upcoming holiday season, there at least one brewery already busy making gifts.
New Belgium Brewing Co. of Fort Collins, Colo. is working on their version of a Belgian framboise. This beer, self-described as a “Colorado holiday tradition,” is New Belgium’s “big luscious celebration of the ruby red fruit” according to a label submitted to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).
The 22-ounce bottle of beer will feature 8.5 percent ABV.
New Belgium’s “version is fermented with northwestern raspberries and a special addition of single-origin Ghana cocoa husks freshly roasted and ground by Nuance Chocolate in Fort Collins.”
An email sent to New Belgium seeking further was not immediately returned.
