GLBC To Release Spacewalker American Belgo

Posted May 12, 2014

GLBC Introduces New Seasonal Spacewalker American Belgo
Limited Edition Beer Releases in July

May 12, 2014—CLEVELAND, OHIO—Great Lakes Brewing Company® (GLBC) announces a new Seasonal, Spacewalker American Belgo.

Spacewalker American Belgo is named for the surprising number of astronauts who have called Ohio home. Brewed with Belgian yeast and American hops, including the experimental ADHA 881 hop, Spacewalker is bold yet balanced with spicy, fruity flavors.

Spacewalker will be released this July in 4-Packs and Draft in GLBC’s distribution markets, taking the place of last year’s commemorative Silver & Gold IPL, which was brewed for GLBC’s 25th anniversary.

Name Origin: Perhaps one of space’s great mysteries is why so many of its explorers hail from Ohio. In honor of the 25 courageous astronauts who have called Ohio their terrestrial home, and the nine Ohio men and women who’ve logged hours walking in space, we present this adventurous brew. Our American Belgo is a trans-continental journey combining bold American hops, candy-sweet Belgian yeast, and a complex blend of malts to boldly go where few beers have gone before.

Flavor: Bold yet balanced with spicy, fruity flavors

Vitals: ABV: 8.2%; ABW: 6.5%; IBU: 65

Packaging: 4-Pack, 1/6 BBL, ½ BBL
