Year Round

Named in honor of our co-founder's bike trip through Europe, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer's home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Together with co-founder, Kim Jordan, they traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire won fans with its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness.

Review

Serving Type
On Tap
Look
slightly amber / copper in color.
Smell
sweet malt and caramel come out at you.
Taste
The malty nutyness from this beer is great and even better on tap. This is the beer that began my love for craft style beers with it's flavor packed goodness.
Feel
medium bodied brew with small amount of carbonation.
Drinkability
You can't go wrong with a fat tire in hand, if you haven't had this beer yet then you need to. I couldn't drink these all day.
