The newest seasonal from New Belgium Brewing Co. is shipping now.
The new beer is Whizbang, a 5.7 percent ABV “American blonde ale” brewed with centennial, Mosaic, nugget, Simcoe, UK admiral hops and a “malty backbone. Whizbang is New Begium’s new spring seasonal release, and will be available through the month of March.
“Whizbang offers a blast of hops, thus the name, yet it’s still crisp and quaffable,” said Bryan Simpson, media relations director for New Belgium in a press release. “It’s hoppy complexity and balanced drinkability makes it a great go-to beer for the late winter and early spring season.”
According to a press release, Whizzing is packaged in 6-packs of 12-ounce bottles and is shipping to retailers in New Belgium’s distribution network now.
