Default Fat Tire at Marsh

I live in Indianapolis, and Fat Tire is hard to come by here.

I was amazed to see not only the Amber Ale, but also the Mothership Wit at my local Marsh(grocery, for those of you not from central Indiana) store.

Are they selling in other regions? Cause last I knew they weren't selling East of the Mississippi.

They have a distribution map on their website here: FAQ | New Belgium

But that shows that they don't distribute to Indiana, so maybe you just got lucky.

Also, see that stupid empty block in the north center of the map? The one with all the surrounding states colored in? Yeah, that's the crap state that I'm stuck in.

Edited: OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! According to the site, they're starting distribution to South Dakota and Indiana this year, so we both lucked out! High five!

We started getting all the NB brews in the Memphis area last year.

Big Red in Bloomington is supposed to have gotten bombers of Fat Tire, 1554 and Mothership Wit. Haven't been there to check yet, but I intend to do so soon. More info on New Belgium in Indiana can be found here:

I'd be interested to hear how long it takes folks in newly "blessed" states to be sick of Fat Tire once it does come. Took me and most of the people I know less than a year before we stopped being impressed. I just don't think it's that good. Cloying chocolaty finish that lasts way too long, and no real hop presence to balance it.

Mothership Wit, 2 degrees below, and even Skinny Dip sign me up, but their flagship beer gets old quickly, IMHO.

Didn't mean to poopoo your excitement, just curious to see what people think of it after the novelty fades.

Yep, 96th and Lantern Rd. Marsh is where I found it. I might get sick of it if I drink it all the time, but as of now I'm a happy camper.

La follie and lips of faith are rather good.
