I’ve been hearing these Colorado snobs rant about their New Belgium Brewery for far too long. They seem particularly adamant about a certain “Fat Tire” beer. A few friends (thanks Phil and Kristen!) vacationed to Colorado, toured the brewery, and brought a whole mess of beers back.
It was heaven. I won’t go into much detail on the beer, though it was an excellent balance of hoppy and buscuity ? very drinkable, which is not necessarily a good thing in my case. You can find legitimate reviews here at Brew Brain, here at SevenPack, or here at BeerAdvocate. And, yes, the pick is not of the Fat Tire label. I also had an Abbey Ale, and that picture turned out the best. That’s how I roll.
P.S. The Abbey Ale was delicious.
