We know now what beers New Glarus Brewing Co. will be releasing in the first three months of the year.
The biggest news is the return of Uff-da Bock, a 6.7 percent ABV German bock-style ale brewed in the Reinheitsgebot tradition. First released in 1993 and last seen in 2016, the ale will be part of the New Glarus, Wis.-based brewery’s seasonal releases and will be available packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles from January through February.
The abbreviated release calendar also indicates New Glarus will be adding 2019 Flanders Sour to its Thumbprint Series, which is made up of beers that head brewer Dan Carey releases at various times throughout each year. The Flanders-style sour ale will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles that are scheduled to ship to retailers in mid-January.
While that is the only information that is included in the release calendar at this time, New Glarus typically releases a number of different seasonal and Thumbprint beers every year, as well as at least three different R&D releases packaged in 500ml bottles starting in June.
