New Belgium Brewing Declares a Mutiny on Gluten with Two Gluten-Reduced Ales

Year-round offerings, Glütiny Pale Ale and Glütiny Golden Ale,
offer uncompromised options for craft drinkers

Ft. Collins, Colo., November 16, 2015 New Belgium Brewing joins the mutiny against gluten by hoisting pints of its new Glütiny ales. The brewery’s latest year-round offerings, Glütiny Pale Ale and Glütiny Golden Ale, give discerning craft beer drinkers uncompromised choices in the gluten-reduced category. The two beers will be available in New Belgium markets mid-January, 2016.

Glütiny Golden Ale
New Belgium dosed Glütiny Golden Ale with Nugget, Goldings and Cascade hops, and then dry-hopped it again with Cascade. These bright, floral hops lend grapefruit and subtle herb notes to the wash of bready-sweet malts. An addition of oats adds a layer of smoothness to the mouthfeel. At 5.2 percent ABV and 20 IBUs, Glütiny Golden Ale is a sessionable, flavorful ale that starts sweet and ends crisp.

Glütiny Pale Ale
Glütiny Pale Ale has a hefty dose of exotic Equinox hops, which bring out guava, papaya and stone fruits lending to a sweet, slightly toasty malt flavor. Additional hops include chinook, cascade and crystal. The beer starts with a light sweetness that slides into a balanced bitterness. The mouthfeel is juicy with a crisp finish. Glütiny Pale Ale comes in at 6 percent ABV and 30 IBUs.

For both beers, New Belgium’s brewers used an enzyme to break down the proteins that trigger a reaction from gluten-sensitive consumers. The beers are technically gluten-removed rather than gluten free, but fall well within the FDA’s guidelines of less than 20ppm. All New Belgium gluten-reduced beers will come in under 10ppm.

“When we started experimenting with the recipes, we wanted to create beers that our most adventurous craft beer drinkers would enjoy” said Bryan Simpson, spokesperson for New Belgium Brewing. “We didn’t want to compromise on flavor, mouthfeel or body. These beers deliver the full flavored experience craft drinkers expect foremost with the added benefit of being gluten-reduced.”

New Belgium’s Glütiny ales retail for a suggested price $9.99 a six pack.

Benefit Brew Winners!!

November 16th, 2015 - The votes are in and we're thrilled to announce that the Dogwood Rescue Society (BC) and Edmonton Area Land Trust (AB) as this year's Benefit Brew Winners!.

We will be brewing up a delicious red lager for the Dogwood crew, and a special one-off Oatmeal Brown Ale for the Edmonton Area Land Trust.  Full proceeds from the sale of each will be donated to their causes (~$10,000 each!).  The brews are slated to hit the shelves in early February, but in the meantime here's a little snapshot of the incredible work these groups do:

Dogwood Rescue is group of passionate, talented, caring volunteers who want to help the thousands of dogs who are homeless because of abandonment or abuse.  They rehome sporting breeds such as Pointers, Vizslas, Weimaraners, as well as Dobermans, Hounds and senior dogs.  They are particularly partial to seniors.

Edmonton Area Land Trust (EALT) works to benefit wildlife and people by protecting natural areas and preserving biodiversity. They steward these special places with volunteers and neighbors who are critical to their work, and educate the public to protect nature for future generations.

STAY TUNED for in BC for the Dogwood Rescue Society Red Lager, and in Alberta for the Edmonton Area Land Trust Oatmeal Brown Ale.  Both brews should be hitting the shelves in early February.

We would also like to thank everyone who nominated, voted and participated in the project this year; especially the other finalists. They all do incredible work and for participating as a finalist each will receive a $500 donation. Please check them out below and consider lending your support.
