Day 178 Drink: New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale
New Belgium Brewing is located in Fort Collins, Colo. The brewery was founded in 1991 and has grown to be one of the largest craft brewers in the nation. Fat Tire Amber Ale was created after a bike trip by New Belgium Brewing's founder, who fell in love with the complexity of Belgian ales.
New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale has a tarnished brass color, with a slight, but lacing white head and a slightly malty nose. The beer has a caramelized malt base with some nice biscuity qualities. Overall a very drinkable beer.
