Where to find packaging codes on New Belgium Beer

Packaging Codes and Best-By Dates


One of the keys to becoming a savvier beer drinker is understanding where to find best-by dates and packaging codes. For one, you can determine how old your beer is and what the optimal window to consume it is. These codes can also supply important information back to us once the beer leaves the brewery.


This also applies to other can sizes!
