New Belgium logoIf you live in Memphis and like beers from Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing Co., you soon won’t need to trek to the Walgreens in West Memphis, Ark., to buy New Belgium’s higher-alcohol beers.

The Fort Collins craft brewer’s Ranger IPA, Abbey and Trippel, as well as the Lips of Faith series and seasonal Frambozen, are slated to hit the Memphis market next week in bottles and on draft, according to distributor Budweiser of Memphis.

Many liquor stores that sell high-gravity beers will have the New Belgium line-up, as well as bars and restaurants with a good selection of craft beer, including The Flying Saucer, Young Avenue Deli, Local Gastropub, Alchemy, Sweet Grass, Aldo’s Pizza Pies, Mellow Mushroom, Hog & Hominy and others.

Budweiser of Memphis has recently opened up a new company called West Tennessee Beverage to service liquor stores and bars and restaurants with high-alcohol licenses. Budweiser of Memphis has also recently taken over the craft beer portfolio of Southwestern Distributing as part of the sale of Southwestern’s beer business to the Hand Family Companies.
