It’s been 25 years since New Belgium brewed their first Fat Tire, and to celebrate they’ve created a Fat Tire collaboration pack with 5 of their favorite breweries. Allagash, Avery, Firestone Walker, Hopworks Urban Brewery and Rhinegeist will all be taking a spin on Fat Tire & jumping in a 12-pack all together!
Riverside will be hosting the event featuring all of the collaboration beers on draft, a half barrel of Fat Tire itself of course, and all of the collab beers available in a bottle if you’d like to take some home!
Come celebrate the birth of one of the craft beer industry’s FINEST!
About the beers:
★ Hopworks Urban ★
“Sure, it looks like original Fat Tire, but one sip is all it takes to unlock what’s different: Tartness. This slightly sour apple spin starts out with a snap of tartness, courtesy of lactobacillus and apple juice, before a balance of malty sweetness & slightly herbal bitterness finishes the sip. Tart Tire, anyone?”
★ Firestone Walker ★
“Our California buds took Fat Tire and did what they do best: they built an assertive hop presence into the profile. With an amplified American hop aroma and flavor, and the inclusion of lager yeast, they’ve created a hoppy amber lager version of our famous amber ale.”
★ Rhinegeist ★
“In the spirit of innovation, Rhinegeist transformed Fat Tire into an entirely new style: The Belgian XPA. The team combined fruit Belgian yeast with bready-sweet European and Colorado malts, and then added a dose of fruit, Vinous hops to the mix, creating a quaffable beer fit for the hopheads and wine drinkers alike.”
★ Allagash ★
Taking Fat Tire back to it’s Belgian roots, our New England friends at Allagash sourced the De Dolle House Belgian yeast strain to introduce classic pear, banana and spice to Fat Tire’s malty goodness, and then they bottle-conditioned the beer with brettanomyces allagagensis for added clove and anise spice that will intensify with age.”
★ Avery ★
“A healthy dose of brettanomyces bruxellensis drie adds tropical undertones to this spin on Fat Tire. Our friends at Avery built a sturdy malt backbone, layered on fruity hops, and then added the wild yeast, which lends a tropical pineapple layer to the amber ale.”
