New Belgium Snow DayNew Belgium Brewing declares a snow day for everyone! This joyful phrase conjures universal meaning: forget work and enjoy.  Snow Day Ale replaces 2ºBelow as New Belgium’s winter seasonal, bringing warmth and relaxation to cold winter days.

Snow Day carries the subtle chocolate and caramel flavors of the newly developed Midnight Wheat malt. Pleasantly hoppy, the Styrian Golding, Centennial and Cascade hops bring a bright note to complement roasty undertones.  Snow Day is the deep garnet of roasted walnut and presents a creamy tan head.

“With its layered hops, Snow Day delivers the depth people crave in a winter beer but it’s very drinkable,” said Grady Hull, assistant brewmaster at New Belgium Brewing.  “We intentionally created a beer that could carry its weight without weighing you down.”

Snow Day has 6.25 percent ABV and 55 IBUs.  It’s available in most New Belgium markets and pricing may vary.

I’m definitely looking forward to trying it as New Belgium usually produces some pretty good beers.

  1. Wow…I saw this at our grocery store and will have to give it a try. I have to admit, however, I thought 2 Below was one of their better beers. I never see Sunshine Wheat around either. I went to college in Ft. Collins in the early 90s and wonder sometimes if New Belgium has lost its sense of what made them great. Just sayin’.

  2. I’ve had it and think it is wonderful change to the typical winter warmer type beer. I liked 2 Below, but I happen to like this one better. FWIW … 2 Below will return in two years. I like the way they have decided to rotate their seasonals.

  3. Don’t even bother…Snow Day Sucks! Bring back 2 below. I can’t believe NB replaced such a great Winter Beer. I’m so dissappointed and was looking forward to some 2 Below this year. Last year I bought 6 cases in Jan, just so I would have some even after Winter. I’m thankful that I got Snow Day in Folly Pack and will give the other 3 of Snow Day away to friends who visit. NB…BRING BACK 2 BELOW!!!

    • I had it this past weekend and I wouldn’t say it sucks. It was pretty good. Not great, but I did enjoy the 6 pack.
