Gettin’ Fancy with New Belgium Le Terroir

admin zcpmw , , , , , , , , , , ,

first_imgMy wife got me addicted to those La Croix sparkling waters. They have no calories, no sugar. They’re like drinking air. The main tasting note is “carbonation.” There’s always some natural fruit flavoring in the drink, but it’s faint. You have to search for it. It’s all very fancy, I assure you.New Belgium’s Le Terroir is a little bit like those La Croix sparkling waters. There is some fruity sweetness hidden in the depths of this beer, but it’s buried deep under such intense tart and sour notes, you have to go digging for it. Le Terroir is a term borrowed from the wine industry, referring to the soil that the grapes of a particular bottle are grown in. Fancy, right? New Belgium chose an appropriate name because this is a fancy beer—a complex sour with a bit of funk on the nose, plenty of puckering sour notes on the palate along with some faint peach sweetness. It’s light on the tongue with a slight peppery finish. The beer was dry hopped with Amarillo and Galaxy hops and aged in big ass foeders for three years. Let the beer warm a bit in your glass, and the hop profile comes forward while the sour, lemon notes mellow out, allowing the malty sweetness to shine.Overall, this beer is refreshing as hell. If you like sours, seek our Le Terroir. If you don’t like sours, seek out Le Terroir and drink it until you like sours. Seriously, this is something you should do to further your education in beer. Some of craft brewing’s most interesting innovation is taking place in the realm of sours. Brewers are putting tons of resources into their barrel programs and funky yeast stocks, and they’re coming up with sours that are far more complex than just “sour.” Le Terroir is a great example of what’s going on in the brave new world of sours. And because New Belgium’s distribution is robust, you can find this beer at any decent bottle shop for a decent price, making it a safe and easy entry into sours.last_img

Military support 35 years in the making

first_imgIn September 2020, the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) will be celebrating 35 years of support to the defense credit union community. You may have seen the logo on ATMs, at Point of Sale terminals or even on your credit union’s debit and ATM cards. Behind that logo is a rich history, powerful strategic partnerships and a dedication to our country’s active duty, veteran, civil service and civilian Americans. But just who is the Armed Forces Financial Network? What do they mean by “Serving Our Troops One Transaction at a Time” and “Processing with a purpose”?The Armed Forces Financial Network was created back in 1985 at the request of the Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Army Finance, to support US Service members with the introduction of Sure Pay, or what is now known as Direct Deposit. With the creation of the AFFN ATM network, AFFN participating DCUC Credit Unions and AMBA Banks for the very first time could offer our US Service Members the opportunity to establish their hometown credit union or bank account and keep it for life.  The AFFN network allowed consumers to access their hometown credit union/bank account wherever the AFFN logo was displayed around the world. This provided our military consumers an opportunity to build primary relationships with their local financial institutions, establishing credit history, no matter where the member moved or traveled throughout the US and/or around the globe.  After 35 years, AFFN remains true to the mission: Provide quality products, services and support for Participating financial institutions serving the US Military Community worldwide. AFFN remains one of the industry’s independently owned and member governed EFT Networks, consisting of: 357 DCUC Credit Unions and AMBA Banks93 million CardholdersAccess to over 800,000 ATMs worldwideAccess to over 2.3 million retail locationsIn 35 years, the AFFN network has successfully processed nearly 4 billion ATM and Point of Sale transactions for their member institutions, but they don’t stop there. While AFFN began as a solution for US Service Members to have access to their primary institution around the world, today’s AFFN is so much more than an electronic funds transfer network.    The AFFN team has a tagline: “Serving our Troops One Transaction at a Time.” This goes beyond just a marketing tag line. It is their philosophy, and one of their guiding principles. AFFN’s commitment to the DoD, their Member Participants, and the Nation’s fighting men and women goes well beyond providing network services. The AFFN Military Community Support Program, created in 2004, is a unique giving partnership, between AFFN, AFFN Participating DCUC Credit Unions, AMBA Banks, and FIS.  These programs have graciously given back nearly $4,000,000 directly to our US Service Members and their families through the Military Community Support, Matching Grant, and AFFN Thank You Card Programs, on a local level and on a global scale.The AFFN Military Community Support program in partnership with FIS proudly supports The Fisher House Foundation. The Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide and in Europe, closest to the medical center or hospital it serves. AFFN, DCUC Credit Union Participants, and FIS donate prepaid $50.00 AFFN Thank You gift cards to military and veteran family members staying in these homes to offset personal expenses, travel-related expenses, care, comfort, food, and entertainment. Since 2005, over 20,192 military families staying at Fisher Houses worldwide have received over $ 1,009,600 in direct support.Through the Military Support Program, AFFN partners with the Fisher House Foundation in service to wounded warriors and military families participating in the DoD’s Warrior Games held each year in the United States and the Invictus Games held at locations around the world. AFFN presents additional AFFN Thank You Cards to the participants to help offset some of the travel costs for the Warriors to participate. Congratulations to the Armed Forces Financial Network, Defense Credit Union Council, and FIS on 35 years of service to our military and civilian communities and Member Participants worldwide! 71SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Denise Floyd Denise Floyd serves as President/CEO of Fort Sill Federal Credit Union.
