New Belgium 1554, $1.79/12oz-A surprisingly bright taste and a dry, chocolaty finish -- one evocative of dark brews enjoyed in Belgian taverns 500 years ago. Not a porter, not a stout -- it's 1554.

New Belgium Honey Orange Triple, $2.69/12oz-For this recipe, our brewers drew inspiration from Belgian Golden Strong Ale, a style we love.

The Seville orange peel is freshly ground 24 hours prior to the day we brew by the Old Town Spice Shop, less than one mile from our Fort Collins, Colorado, brewery. In the end, we created a big, sweet and citrusy Belgian-style Tripel with thoughtfully sourced ingredients.
