New Belgium Fat Tire & Friends Friday, July 1st!
New Belgium Brewing celebrates its 25th anniversary with the release of five collaboration beers reinterpreting the brewer’s flagship, Fat Tire Amber Ale.
Friday, July 1st Decatur will be tapping all 5 collaborations plus the original Fat Tire from 5pm-8pm. We will be doing flights of all 6 plus some killer prize/swag giveaways.
Allagash brewing is producing a version of Fat Tire using a Belgian yeast sourced form the Poperings region and a touch of the Allagash house Brettanomyces – expect notes of stone fruit, sweet tart and peppercorn.
Avery brewing will focus on a fruitier hop bill also with a dose of brett evoking notes of apricot and pineapple.
Firestone Walker Brewing is creating a west coast interpretation of Fat Tire with an assertive hop profile and a light lager yeast.
Hopworks Urban Brewery is creating a tart Fat Tire bringing in apple and lactobacillus to help highlight that beautiful green apple snap inherent to the original Fat Tire.
