Joining Firestone Walker Brewing Co., Avery Brewing Company, Allagash Brewing Company, Hopworks Urban Brewery, and Rhinegeist Brewery to put a new spin on the famous Fat Tire.
We will feature all 5 collaberations and of course Fat Tire.
Firestone Walker Fat Hoppy Ale-creating an assertive hop presence and then added a lager yeast to the original recipe. Resulting in a hoppy amber lager with an amplified American hop aroma and flavor.
Hopworks Fat Sour Apple Ale- Slightly sour homage starts out with a snap of tartness, courtesy of Lactobacillus and apple juice, then gets balanced with malty sweetness and a slight herbal bitterness
Avery Fat Wild Ale- Taking a healthy dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis Drie to create a spin with a sturdy malt back bone, fruity hop aroma and a tropical pineapple layer.
Allagash Fat Funk Ale- Bringing the brew back to its Belguin roots using a yeast strain that adds classic pear, banana, and spice to the original malty goodness. Then conditioned with Brettanomyces Allagagensis for a spicy finsih.
Rhinegeist Fat Pale Ale- Combining fruity Belgian yeast, bready-sweet European and Colorado malts and a healthy does of fruity, vinous hops. Resulting in a Belgian Style XPA!
