Fort Collins, Colorado-based brewing company, New Belgium, famed for its Fat Tire beer brand, hosted the C&C Distributors sales team who are launching the product in the Ocean State. The team spent a comprehensive day with brewery representatives training on New Belgium’s history, the beers and the brand. The team also enjoyed a bicycle ride into Fort Collins for lunch, following the inspiration of the Fat Tire Amber Ale. That flagship brew, reflected now in the company’s logo, originates from a co-founder’s bicycle trip through Belgium from brewery to brewery.
Other beers include Ranger IPA, an India pale ale (IPA); Citradelic, an India Pale Ale with Tangerine, Rampant Imperial IPA, an American double/imperial; Heavy Melon, a Watermelon Lime Ale (summer seasonal) and two gluten-free beers, Glutiny Pale Ale and Glutiny Golden Ale. Other offerings from the brewery that will hit the market sometime later this year include; 1554 Black Lager, a Belgian dark beer; Abbey Belgian Ale, an abbey dubbel beer; and Trippel Belgian Style Ale, a Belgian-style tripel; and various seasonal and limited-edition beers.
