UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 What set shift apart from other beers in New Belgium’s lineup was the fact that it was exclusively available in a can. What sets this beer apart from other pale lagers is the fact that it embraces a strong and diversified hop lineup. In short, Shift has always stood out, and that’s a good thing, especially when we’re talking flavor. The hops neither overwhelm nor seem out of place. They make a confident, intentional presence without interfering with the malty presence. In the case of Shift, different is definitely good.
