(New Glarus, WI) – A hodge-podge of New Glarus Brewing updates gleaned primarily from the company’s Facebook page.
- Enigma Sour Brown Ale hit shelves a few weeks ago.
- On the much-discussed Belgian Red shortage due to weather that wrecked Midwest fruit crops, per Facebook, “We have enough Belgian Red to get us through this year. And yes the Cherry harvest failed.”
- A popular beer shop in Wisconsin reported a couple weeks back, “New Glarus Serendipity will be coming in two weeks to make up for lack of Belgian Red. It’s a fruit beer with apples, cranberry and cherries.” While the cherry harvest failure led to the brewery making another cherry beer isn’t clear, Serendipity Happy Accident Fruit Ale was just released in 750ml bottles, according to a RateBeer thread. No announcement on the New Glarus page…yet.
- Coffee Stout will rotate in and replace Road Slush this winter as planned. Looks like it may be an early 2013 release.
- In case you missed it, production is up 20+% this year and the company is investing $7 million in upgrades.
