New Belgium Fat Tire & Friends CollaBEERation @ The Blind Pig Brewery

Thursday, July 21st

To celebrate their 25th Anniversary, New Belgium crossed the country visiting their brewing friends and brewed 5 different iterations of their flagship beer Fat Tire. The Blind Pig Brewery is proud to be tapping all 5 of these beers (and the classic Fat Tire) on Thursday, July 21st!

Tap List:

New Belgium Fat Tire

Allagash Fat Funk Ale
Who wants the funk? Fat Tire wants the funk. Our New England friends at Allagash brought it, taking Fat Tire back to its Belgian roots with a De Dolle house Belgian yeast strain that adds classic pear, banana and spice to Fat Tire’s malty goodness. They then bottle-conditioned the beer with Brettanomyces Allagagensis for a spicy finish. Get your funk on.

Go Wild for Fat
Thanks to Boulder's finest for this unabashedly tropic take on Fat Tire. Avery took a healthy dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis Drie to create a Fat Tire spin with a sturdy malt backbone, fruity hop aroma and a tropical pineapple layer. Heed the call of the wild Fat Tire.

Hopworks Fat Sour Apple Ale
Our heroes at HUB pedaled Fat Tire straight to the apple orchard. This slightly sour homage starts out with a snap of tartness, courtesy of Lactobacillus and apple juice, then gets balanced with Fat Tire-inspired malty sweetness and a slight herbal bitterness. Nice ride, HUB!

Firestone Walker Fat Hoppy Ale
A happily hopified Fat Tire thanks to our California friends. First, they created an assertive hop presence and then they added a lager yeast to the Fat Tire recipe. The result? A hoppy amber lager version of Fat Tire with an amplified American hop aroma and flavor. Time for you to hop on this Fat, too.

Rhinegeist Fat Pale Ale
Fat Tire to the XP and A. The innovative folks at Rhinegeist went all new-style on Fat Tire. The result is a Belgian-style XPA. A combination of fruity Belgian yeast, bready-sweet European and Colorado malts and a healthy dose of fruity, vinous hops. Perfect for hopheads, wine lovers, beer fanatics and even whiskey quaffers.

All 6 of these beers will be unique and this will be your only chance to try them on draft in the area!
