Fat Tire by New Belgium Brewing Company in Colorado, United States

About Fat Tire by New Belgium Brewing Company

Named in honor of the New Belgium's co-founder's bike trip through Europe, the 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.
