    Isn't too bad after all. Everyone said it was trash, but I'm enjoying it.

    Yeah I think the fat tire is a little sweet but I don't notice after the first couple pints.:)

    New Belgium makes some other beers that are really tasty, it's just that the Fat Tire gets more publicity among the bike crowd. I really like Loft, 1554, and the Abbey Ale. I've met a couple of New Belgium guys, they are serious about belgian style ales and good people.

    I work in the beer industry, and I have worked with the folks over at NB brewing (Fat Tire) a couple of times, I have to say, they are really laid back, and easy going. Most people in this business are really cut-throat. The attitude with the guys from Fat Tire is really re-freshing. They are worth supporting for that reason alone.

    For those of you who have not tried it, their Sunshine Wheat is a really good beer, I reccommend drinking it with a slice of organic orange.

    I like their 1554 black ale.

    Fat Tire is still tasteless, though. :p

    beer & fruit should be kept separate.

    I usually would be agreeing to the "fruit and beer should be kept seperate"

    However, Its what the good people at NB Brewing reccommend. I must admit, its pretty good.

    Supposedly the first beer of the evening sets your palate.

    If it's a good beer, you can drink crap all night and it won't taste that bad. If it's bad, NOTHING will salvage it.

    you think that works?

    good luck.

    try that theory w/ some food. order a nice app at a restaurant, go home and dig into some frozen Swanson dinner.

    I'm seriously considering a blind taste test.

    Checked Devendra's disc out, pretty good. And when I am west of the Missisippi, I always pick up some Fat Tire and various New Belgium treats.
