New Realm Brewing’s core principles are quality, creativity, authenticity, and striving for perfection, all with a customer-centric commitment and approach
The people have spoken, and our May BC Small Batch launch will be (drum roll sound) exactly the same as April’s BC Small Batch launch.
Space Race, a double dry-hopped hazy double IPA, rocketed off store shelves this month, moving as fast as any previous BCSB release. We know hazy IPAs are an in-demand style, but the velocity with which Space Race achieved liftoff surprised even us. Sending another round of Space Race into orbit made perfect sense.
If you missed it the first time around or just need a refresher: Space Race was one of the most popular hazy IPAs we piloted in our Beer Hall last year. For the 2019 version, we doubled down on it.
Boulder, CO– April 25, 2019 — Avery Brewing Company, a pioneering and innovative craft brewery known for its all-encompassing obsession with beer, creates a modern, hop forward, full-flavored Hazy IPA, at only 100 calories and 3 carbs. Founder and CEO Adam Avery admits, “This is an extremely selfish brewing endeavor. A beer brewed for me – an aging, wannabe-athlete who “drinks” for a living, and desperately needs to start setting a new and healthier pace in life.” Pacer IPA may not just be for him, though, as increasingly health-conscious drinkers look for lower calorie and lower carb options, driving the burgeoning “better-for-you” category in beer. Brewing a legitimate, flavorful Hazy IPA clocking in at 100 calories, 3 carbs, and 4.5% ABV, that sports a mouthfeel and hop character worthy of today’s craft beer drinker, was no easy task. True to the company’s Beer First mentality, the brewers were ready for the challenge, focusing on ingredients that would ensure high returns on the full sensory experience. In addition to traditional malted barley, they incorporated wheat and oats for fuller body, as well as an abundance of southern hemisphere hops, and contemporary dry-hopping techniques to achieve big, juicy, fruity aromas and flavors. Despite his self-deprecating manner, Avery is actually a long time and devout rock climber and cyclist, embodying the mountain lifestyle of the brewery’s homestate of Colorado. Going big on flavor has always been just as important to him. “After 26 years of exploring and creating beers, I realized I also wanted a real IPA with fewer consequences.” Avery added, “Pacer isn’t about making something I can have a lot of. It’s about making something I want to have a lot of. Especially without getting in the way of my extremely insignificant athletic goals, or the trauma of stepping onto the scale!” About Avery Brewing Company: A Colorado-based brewery for over 25 years, Avery Brewing has a singular focus on creating the perfect beer. In a world full of discord, their belief is that a singular dedication to something as seemingly simple and inconsequential as beer can transform the world. Avery Brewing exists to pursue the mastery of beer and to reveal its power. Standouts include White Rascal Belgian-Style White Ale, a remarkable selection of IPAs including Maharaja Imperial IPA, and Barrel-Aged 16ers like Vanilla Bean Stout.

Scratch #373 represents take 2 on our low-cal challenge. This time around, we’ve tweaked the malt bill, kept the calories to 100 and hit 4% ABV. The chit malt is out, and we’ve added pale and honey malts to push the color to a more golden hue while adding subtle sweet, toasty notes. The hops stay the same – Cascade, Chinook and Comet – and we’ve brewed this one with Liberty Ale yeast for its delicate fruity esters. We taste: orange, grassiness, hint of toasted bread. Draft and growler fills now available at the brewery.

April 24, 2019 - Today, Anheuser-Busch announced the company is expanding its emergency drinking water program in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) to deliver critical hydration to volunteer firefighters across the country.
The new partnership will kick off with a donation of one million cans of clean drinking water in support of volunteer fire departments in 2019, beginning this spring in advance of wildfire season.
“As the country faces more natural disasters, like wildfires, it’s important to have more programs in place to help our emergency responders,” said Adam Warrington, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility at Anheuser-Busch. “With the evolution of our emergency drinking water program, we’re able to offer tangible support and necessary resources to those who are protecting our communities when they need it most.”
Every year, Anheuser-Busch periodically pauses beer production to can emergency drinking water, to be ready to lend a helping hand during natural disasters and other crises. Building on this commitment, the brewer has teamed up with NVFC, the national association serving volunteer fire departments, to deploy its brewery resources and production expertise to deliver canned water to the nation’s volunteer firefighters.
“Volunteer fire departments across the country are in need of our support,” said Heather Schafer, CEO of the NVFC. “Many Americans don’t realize that 65 percent of our nation’s firefighters are actually volunteers, with nearly 85 percent of fire departments being all or mostly volunteer. There’s plenty of support they need – but maintaining hydration during long incidents or disasters such as wildfires is a major concern for departments with limited budgets and resources. It’s been so powerful for us to team up with Anheuser-Busch in the evolution of this program to offer clean, safe drinking water to volunteer responders across the country.
The cans of emergency drinking water will be distributed by Anheuser-Busch’s wholesaler partners in 25 markets at the start of June to help volunteer departments prepare for the upcoming wildfire season. In partnership with Anheuser-Busch, the NVFC has identified and selected the most vulnerable markets across the nation to receive the initial water donation. The program will also leverage a rapid-response approach to support volunteer departments nationwide actively fighting wildfires throughout the year.
Joining forces with Anheuser-Busch and the NVFC is the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI), whose mission it is to educate members of Congress about the needs and challenges of our nation’s fire and emergency services. Together, Anheuser-Busch, the NVFC and CFSI will be raising awareness on the needs of local first responders – especially around hydration.
“Hydration is critical for firefighter performance,” said Bill Webb, President of CFSI. “Dehydration can result in decreased physical and mental performance, as well as serious health consequences – a serious concern when lives are on the line. This program is addressing a huge issue that volunteer firefighters face. Without the right resources, hydration can be a matter of life or death.”
Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding tradition of providing emergency drinking water and supplies for disaster relief efforts in partnership with the American Red Cross. Since 1988, Anheuser-Busch and their wholesaler partners have provided more than 80 million cans of water to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters nationwide.
For more than 165 years, Anheuser-Busch has been woven into the cultural fabric of the United States, carrying on a legacy of brewing great-tasting, high-quality beers that have satisfied beer drinkers for generations. Today, we own and operate 23 breweries, 14 distributorships and 23 agricultural and packaging facilities, and have more than 18,000 colleagues across the United States. We are home to several of America’s most recognizable beer brands, including Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob ULTRA and Stella Artois, as well as a number of regional brands that provide beer drinkers with a choice of the best-tasting craft beers in the industry.
From responsible drinking programs and emergency drinking water donations to industry-leading sustainability efforts, we are guided by our unwavering commitment to supporting the communities we call home.
The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) is the leading nonprofit membership association representing the interests of the volunteer fire, emergency medical, and rescue services. The NVFC serves as the voice of the volunteer in the national arena and provides invaluable advocacy, resources, programs, and education for first responders across the nation.

ABOUT THE CONGRESSIONAL FIRE SERVICES INSTITUTE (CFSI)
Established in 1989 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy institute, the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) is designed to educate members of Congress about the needs and challenges of our nation’s fire and emergency services to help them understand how the federal government can support the needs of our local first responders.
