New Belgium Trippel Belgian Style Beer

Ready to get 2018 off to a rip roaring start??  Start with New Belgium’s Trippel Belgian Style Ale.  For the basic 411 check out the New Belgium website right HERE.  But here are a few more interesting pieces of info about this full bodied ale….

#1 New Belgium Trippel Belgian Style Ale is a Belgian-style ALE.  obviously.  But what does that mean exactly??  There are many styles of Belgian beer – apparently the Belgians are equal opportunity beer drinkers – but the Tripel style of Belgian beer is said to get its name from requiring three times the amount of grain as a typical beer. Versus the tripel’s cousin – the Dubbel which is a style that has been brewed by monks and secular breweries for centuries. The name is said to have originated from the style requiring twice the grain as a “regular” beer, which means it is a stronger beer.  NOTE: Note: To help remember the difference between dubbel and tripel, just use this simple mnemonic device: dubbel is dark.  More info about Belgian beers from the Huffington Post right HERE.

#2 New Belgium brewers included what they call “a trace of coriander” in the Trippel.
co·ri·an·der - ˈkôrēˌandər,ˌkôrēˈandər/
1. an aromatic Mediterranean plant of the parsley family, the leaves and seeds of which are used as culinary herbs.

#3 New Belgium Brewing {Ft. Collins, CO} is 100% employee owned and recognized as one of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work and one of the Wall Street Journal’s Best Small Businesses.  Who cares??  Well beyond the fact that those are some impressive awards – that means that the brewers really realllly care whether or not you like their beer.
