It might still be November, but that hasn’t stopped a few breweries from revealing their production and release schedules for next year. Firestone Walker, New Belgium, and Lagunitas have all shown us what’s in store for 2013, and there are some exciting things in the pipeline.
The Paso Robles brewery posted a sharp graphic to their Facebook page that details their regular, reserve, and seasonal releases. Velvet Merkin (the barrel aged version of their season oatmeal stout) will see a bottle release for the first time in the fall, and the long-awaited Pivo Pils will be released in May!
New Belgium Brewing
The Full Pint has details about the 2013 Release calendar which is heavy with Lips of Faith branded collaborations:
In addition the brewery is cutting their (quite tasty) Belgo IPA from production to make room for a new imperial IPA, named Rampart, in March 2013.
The Full Pint also has some details on the seasonal releases that Lagunitas is planning.
