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!

I think I may have to use that “Save the planet… it’s the only one with beer!” as a quote of the day. HA! …so true.

Ha, ha! I got the quote from a poster… but it didn’t say who the original quote was by. I love it! 🙂

Fat Tire – Coming soon to a T.G.I. Fridays near you so everyone should be able to give it a try.

I love this photo, it’s perfectly fitting for this bottle cap. 🙂 I also love New Belgium, they make many great beers, my favorite is their 1554 Enlightened Black Ale, it’s delicious.

Seconding the 1554 rec – that stuff is beautiful. It’s like the perfect fall beer. New Belgium makes some really great stuff!

The only beer I’ve tried from New Belgium is the Fat Tire, so it sounds like I must give the 1554 a try!
