BEER RELEASE: New Belgium Mighty Arrow Spring Seasonal
MIGHTY ARROW RETURNS AS NEW BELGIUM’S SPRING SEASONAL
Ft. Collins, Colorado, February 4, 2010 – New Belgium Brewing announced that the “dog days of spring” have begun as Mighty Arrow Pale Ale returns for its second year as the brewery’s spring seasonal. Created as a tribute to the beloved pet of New Belgium Brewing’s CEO Kim Jordan, Arrow was an Aussie/Border Collie mix that literally “ran” New Belgium for 12 years.
Mighty Arrow cuts its own course through heightened hop aroma and flavor. It provides pleasurable aromas from Cascade and Amarillo hops with a honey malt base. Staying true to the American style of pale ale, Mighty Arrow has a clear golden color, six percent alcohol by volume and 35 IBU’s.
“Mighty Arrow did well last year and we’re pleased to bring it back,” says Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull. “It offers citrus and floral tones, both of which are appreciated during the spring warm-up months.”
Mighty Arrow retails for approximately $7.99 and will be available in most New Belgium markets. To learn more about the New Belgium Brewing portfolio, visit the website at http://www.newbelgium.com.
