From 5 to 7 p.m. this evening, the Charleston Beer Exchange is the place to be for free samples and growler fills of the latest in New Belgium's limited release "Lips of Faith" collection.
According to CBX, on tap this evening will be:
New Belgium/Alpine collaboration "Super India Pale Ale" - triple dry-hopped imperial IPA bursting with Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hops, 9% ABV.
New Belgium "Peach Porch Lounger" - the lovechild Saison of musician G. Love and New Belgium. The glowing orange beer is a groovy mix of peaches, hominy grits, molasses and lemon peel with pale and biscuit malts. Brettanomyces yeast brings a bold, sweet nose and the beer ends with a dry finish, 9.4% ABV.
New Belgium "Biere de Mars" - exploration of the classic French and Belgian brews. Cloudy, yet glowing orange hue, prepare yourself for a celestial collaboration of oats, wheat, barley malt and lemon verbena, all of which is set into orbit by unidentified flying yeast strains, 6.2% ABV.
For tonight only, if you buy a growler of any of the three, you'll receive a New Belgium globe glass for free while supplies last.
