It's about time! After years of smuggling the stuff back from Colorado and then across the Mississippi from St. Louis, New Belgium Brewing finally started distributing Fat Tire Amber Ale to the Chicago area last year.
But it was only in 22 oz individual bottles. Huh? Yeah, I want to drink my beer out of something that looks like it should be in a paper sack on a street curb. (I only like my Colt 45 and Night Train that way )
Finally, they are selling six packs and twelve packs of Fat Tire and other brews in the area. Hallelujah!
Quaffing one of these right now and it is quite tasty. I recommend it as a cold summer treat:
Thank you, New Belgium. Thank you.
