•New Belgium Brewing has released two new beers—Paardebloem and Pluot—to its Lips of Faith series. Both brews will be available through July or as long as supplies last. Pluot (10% abv) is a sweet ale made from pluot juice (a hybrid of plum and apricot) and New Belgium’s house Belgian ale yeast. Paardebloem (9% abv) is the sixth beer to be launched in collaboration with Salt Lake City’s Red Rock Brewing, mixing ingredients like peach juice and dandelion greens with the house Belgian ale yeast, as well as some wood-aged sour beer and Grains of Paradise. New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series, which releases new beers every quarter, has also included Transatlantique Kriek, La Folie, Cascara Quad and Heavenly Feijoa so far this year.
