New Belgium & NC State Officially Announce “Old Tuffy” Beer

Published

on

Earlier this month, “Old Tuffy” beer became official. Back in April the possibility of a New Belgium Beer released in partnership with NC State was a possibility, but now it’s officially a reality.

Here’s the official statement from NC State:

NC State University today announced an agreement with New Belgium Brewing Company that will provide annual support to student-success initiatives and research projects and help further develop the fermentation science program at the university. As part of the agreement, New Belgium has been granted licensing rights to brew Old Tuffy Premium Lager which will be available in retail outlets throughout North Carolina beginning in August.

The five-year agreement has an option for a five-year renewal. NC State will also receive a small portion of the proceeds of the sale of Old Tuffy to further support the university’s mission.

“We are excited to launch this collaboration with New Belgium and pleased to partner with an industry leader that is dedicated to supporting NC State’s academic excellence and that also shares our values of innovation, a commitment to sustainability and the importance of community service,” said Chancellor Randy Woodson. “Among other benefits, the partnership will provide internships, fund ongoing student success initiatives, and help develop an academic program aimed at providing future leaders for North Carolina’s robust craft beer industry.”

“At New Belgium, we pride ourselves on proving that business can be a force for good,” said New Belgium CEO Steve Fechheimer. “Supporting the education of innovative and creative minds in North Carolina embodies that spirit and further shows our commitment to the State. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with NC State.”

The collaboration between NC State and New Belgium will support student opportunities including internships and traineeships that provide hands-on experience for individuals interested in the brewing industry, and participation in job-placement activities and executive level leadership speaker events. New Belgium will also partner with the university to develop a student-focused “Responsible Consumption of Alcohol” program.

In an effort to grow its national presence and minimize its sustainable footprint, New Belgium expanded to Asheville in 2015. Hiring over 100 North Carolinians at its LEED certified brewery, the company is committed to being a part of growing community through events, volunteer work and hosting local organizations.

The “Old Tuffy” beer is expected to be sold locally starting August 5th, and they are hopeful to have them sold in Carter-Finley Stadium by the season opener against East Carolina.

Oh yeah, in case you missed it, the NC State Board of Trustees approved the sale of Beer and Wine at Athletic events on Wednesday.

Published

NC State Graduate Redshirt Senior Defensive End James Smith-Williams has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Bowl.

Last year, the Wolfpack had two players play in the East-West game: Punter A.J. Cole and Offensive Tackle Tyler Jones. The year before that, Defensive End Kentavius Street and Offensive Guard Tony Adams played in the annual showcase.

Smith-Williams has been dinged up all year, but has 20 tackles (1 for loss), 1 sack and 7 QB Hurries in 7 games in 2019. He was 3rd on The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman’s Preseason list of the Top Freaks in College Football.

No player on this entire list has had the type of transformation that Smith-Williams has had. He arrived five years ago weighing a spindly 196 pounds. Now he’s a hulking 265. He benches 420, doing 27 reps at 225. He squats 620 and cleans 374. Smith-Williams vertical jumps 40 inches and has clocked a 4.43 in his pro agility time. Earlier this week, he ran an electronically timed 40 at 4.58. The hand time was 4.52. (Athletic)
