View Full Version : New Belgium-Sponsorships
02-10-2005, 01:09 AM
Noticed the lack of New Belgium as a sponsor, which was a higlight of last years Fest. Sure it was expensive, but the fact that such a cool, independent company sponsored a cool, independent festival stood out, and it's something I would like to see again. And if they are not sponsoring it this year, who are some of the other sponsors?
And if another beer company is going to be choosen, pick Boulevard, because their Wheat is the best darn beer in the world in my humble opinion.
I would just hate to see some big corporations step into the Wakarusa mix, as I like I would lose a lot of excitement about this fest. Love to hear anybody elses comments on the matter.
Good timing on the question. As of yesterday, New Belgium will be the beer sponsor for the next three years. They are the perfect match for Wakarusa.

I suggest a plain Wakarusa Light from the New Belgium boys this year. I loved their beer, but I can't drink alot of it. How about just somethin plain?
Speak up and be heard. Who's with me?

I'm with ya Critter. Let's face it - it will most likely be MUCH MUCH hotter this year. Chances are we won't have a hurricane on night one to cool down the rest of the weekend. Something plain goes down easier in the heat.

New Belgium's Fat Tire is the best beer made in the USA. Every time I travel out west, it's a battle to stuff as much Fat Tire as possible to bring home. I wish it were sold here in Chicago. Very pleased they are sponsoring this festival.

We need lite beer.

Yeah, they really needed to have something else. It will no doubt be a hot bitch out there this summer and the beer won't flow nearly as well if it's just those two selections.

I have to agree about the beer options. I'm not a big beer drinker....I get way too loopy, way too easily! The Fat Tire was good, but so heavy. I'd like to see something lighter & refreshing. It's really too bad Boulevard couldn't be a sponsor. They have some nice choices. I love Zon!
Maybe I'll just have to start practicing my beer drinking now in preparation.......

has anyone tried Loft or sunshine wheat? those two seem a bit 'lighter' than the other New Belgium beers. Loft has become my new favorite beer as of lately...it's a seasonal beer but it is seasonal through september. check it out!
i'll be a newcomer to the festival, so what will the NB vendors be like and where will they be? i assume there will be a variety of NB beers on tap and in the bottle?

The New Belgium venders were located throughout the concert field part of the venue and it may be available at the general store. I believe that all that they will have will be on tap (no packaged sales) and due to Kansas liquor laws (which are pretty screwy, especially in state parks) it will only be available until midnight.

I love me some New Belgium!

Yeah, must have NB. Sunshine Wheat tastes like fruit loops to me. Yum. We can't get it in OK.

My travelling companions and I made sure to stock up on every available New Belgium brew at the liquor store right up from Clinton Park, there was one...Abbey, perhaps? that was a fine, light-ER beer for the Kansas sun..

loft is a lighter summer beer that new belgium puts out. It was key last year.
