Advent Beer Calendar 2017: Day 8: New Belgium Accumulation

New Belgium Accumulation White IPA

“I’m dreaming of a White IPA” doesn’t quite have the same ring as “White Christmas” but the intent in today’s Advent beer pick is the same: Accumulation White IPA from New Belgium Brewing. “Accumulation” as in snow, of course! Or an accumulation of IBUs and/or hops, according to the brewery:

This winter, IBUs start accumulating like snow in Colorado with our new Accumulation White IPA. Brewing a white IPA was not only a way to salute the white beauty falling from the sky, but a direct revolt to the longstanding tradition of brewing dark beers for winter and winter seasonal beers. At least that’s what our rebellious brewers like to claim as they shovel in plenty of Mosaic and Amarillo hop varietals and a bit of wheat for a smooth mouthfeel. Stack up a few cases of Accumulation White IPA to keep your long nights glowing blizzard white.

I suppose “accumulation” could also refer to the acquiring of gifts under your Christmas tree, or Advent beers you’ve collected, or yes this beer. You’ll be dreaming of a white Christmas (IPA) in no time.
