We always like to promote New York State breweries on our “Beer Break At Work”, weekday afternoons at 3:20 on Oldiez96.1. Today, we spotlight the Ithaca Beer Company, just  a stone’s throw away and their new release of Belgian brews.

Here are the details, according to beerpulse.com:

“As a follow up to our popular Box of Hops Variety Pack we released a couple months back, we present Box of Belgians. Box of Belgians features four aggressively hoppy, and ever so Belgian-inspired ales found only in this variety pack: Hopbloem, Fleur de Belgique, Obscurite and Laissez Faire.

Box of Belgians is a limited release (only 10,000 packs) available in select markets around the Northeast beginning in mid-February.
