For the start of Beer Week on the Triumph Dining Blog we had the pleasure of trying three beers from New Planet Brewing in Boulder, Colorado.
New Planet definitely shifts the table toward the rest of theindustry with these three libations. We live in Sierra Nevada Pale Ale country, which is THE local favorite. New Planet’s Pale Ale stacks upwell against Sierra and has an expected hoppy bite that retreats to a smooth aftertaste. One of our reviewers even tasted a hint of scotch flavor.
The Raspberry brew is just like the fruit beers made in the Belgium tradition. In fact, we served them to some friends without telling them they were drinking gluten-free beers and no one knew the wiser. It had the sweet taste that many people like, especially on a hot day.
You can’t go wrong with any of the New Planet offerings and we can onlyhope that they have enough success to allow them to expand their portfolio of beers to other styles in the future.
