Fat Tire Amber Aleís appeal is in its delicate balance of toasty malt flavors, like biscuits in an oven, with crisp hoppiness. We have this beer in stock right now!
Itís the incredible balance of the sweet malt and bitter hops that brings such a complex depth of flavors to this Belgian style beer. Neither the malt or hops take control of the palate, allowing an exciting spectrum of flavors to come through and complement so many different kinds of foods.
And it all started with a boy (a 32 yr old young man, actually) riding his bike (with fat tires) through Belgium with samples of two of his homebrews on him. It was the founder of New Belgium Brewing, Jeff Lebesch, who was the boy embarking on this wild beer adventure. Jeff sampled his Belgian brew straight to the Belgian people; and the response to the one sample he called Fat Tire was phenomenal, they loved it!
Jeff loved the Belgium approach to beer making and their free-ness to use so many different flavors when brewing. He brought back notes from his trip filled with encouragement from the kind Belgian folks along with their constructive suggestions. Once home, he perfected the beer which we are now able to enjoy. We are so lucky! New Belgiumís Fat Tire Amber Ale is now available for all to enjoy on our online beer store. Take this beer for a spin we KNOW youíre going to love it.
