Fat Tire – Traveling

My Brother-in-law took cross country trips on his motorcycle and always brought us home some beer that we couldn’t buy in VA.   A few years ago, he brought us some beer from New Belgium Brewing with a bicycle on the front.  Cool cap too, right?

My husband tasted Fat Tire before and loved it, but it was my first time trying this delicious brew.  Maltiness and hopiness swirl in perfect symmetry throughout this Amber Ale.  Caramel in color and with some nutty (for you Joel T.) undertones, it really is a great beer.  Imagine my surprise when they started selling it in our area (well not VA, but we did find it in NC) not to long ago – “SCORE”!

So, now that you don’t have to take a cross-country trip to get this brew – go pick it up!  I’ve heard rumors that they’re planning to distribute in Virginia soon to, so be on the lookout!
