When I was out in Arizona I went in knowing that Yuengling does not distribute out there so when I go to a normal restaurant that I would need to find something else to be my go to beer. Luckily Fat Tire from New Belgium was quite accessible. There is nothing fancy to this ale but it is quite drinkable. It served it’s exact purpose for my trip as being the reliable easy to find beer. It also is perfect for session drinking if that is what you are planning on doing. Also I was recently told by an employee at my local beer store that New Belgium will be coming down to South Florida very soon. Be on the look out for 1554. I had a chance to sample that over there and can’t wait to have it again.
Overall Grade – B
