Ermanos is super excited to be able to celebrate New Belgium Brewing's 25th birthday with all of the brewery's cool friends. We'll be showcasing the following inspired takes on the beer that built a beer empire: Fat Tire!
Fat Funk Ale - Alagash Brewery
Fat Wild Ale - Avery Brewing Company
Fat Sour Apple Ale - Hopworks Urban Brewery
Fat Hoppy Ale - Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
Fat Pale Ale - Rhinegeist Brewery
Some inspiration for ya'll:
New Belgium reached out to collaboration partners who were long time friends and innovative brewers. For the mixed 12-pack, Allagash is producing a version of Fat Tire using a Belgian yeast sourced from the Poperinge region and a touch of the Allagash house Brettanomyces – expect notes of stone fruit, sweet tart and peppercorn; Avery will focus on a fruitier hop bill also with a dose of brett evoking notes of apricot and pineapple; Firestone Walker is creating a west coast interpretation of Fat Tire with an assertive hop profile and a light lager yeast; Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) is creating a tart Fat Tire bringing in apple and lactobacillus to help highlight that beautiful green apple snap inherent to the original Fat Tire; and Rhinegeist has transformed Fat Tire into a Belgian XPA, combining a fruity Belgian yeast strain with bready-sweet European and Colorado malts for a beer to please hopheads and wine drinkers alike.
