Being a resident of beautiful Buffalo, NY I’ve always hoped I could someday walk into a bar and yell “Snow Day for everyone!”
Now that New Belgium has replaced their 2° Below with a fresh winter seasonal called Snow Day, such a thing is possible.
I haven’t had a taste for myself yet but from what I hear, this warming and relaxing brew is made with the new(ish) Midnight Wheat malt, Styrian Golding, Centennial and Cascade hops. I can only imagine that all of those hops bring a bright note to the rich caramel and chocolate flavors and roasty undertones.
Grady Hull, assistant brewmaster at New Belgium explained that they “intentionally created a beer that could carry its weight without weighing you down. With layered hops, Snow Day delivers the depth people crave in a winter beer but it’s very drinkable.”
With a 6.25% ABV, it’s sure to keep you nice and toasty. Drink too many this winter and you may have to declare your own snow day.
Use their awesome “Libation Location” beer finding tool to see how far you’ll have to go to get your hands on some.
