Default New Belgium 2 Below!!!

I picked up 2 Below for the first time yesterday and man it is good! I'm usually not a big fan of hoppy beers, and this is hoppy, strong hop aroma and flavor, but it is balanced very well with some sweetness. I would love to fine a clone of this beer!

I work at a wine/beer shop and we have a crrrrazy selection...but I've never heard of 2 below. Who makes it? Is it from Belgium, or just Belgian-styled? Who imports/distributes it?

It's made by New Belgium, the makers of Fat Tire. We have it on tap at my bar. It's a winter warmer, about 7% ABV if I remember correctly. It's pretty tasty stuff, although it didn't seem that hoppy to me. More malty and sweet, with a bit of fruitiness. Of course, I've been drinking tons of Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA lately, so nothing is tasting hoppy anymore.

Yup that is the stuff, same maker as Fat Tire, that's why I tried it, I like Fat Tire. But compared to Fat Tire, this is hoppy, especially the aroma.
The bottle I'm drinking right now says 6.6 ABV.

Unfortunately, it doesn't get distributed this far east.

Well... a person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

Yeah...you wouldn't believe how many people come in asking for Fat Tire. I need to put up a big sign on the door, Clerks-style, that says "I ASSURE YOU WE CANNOT GET FAT TIRE".

Supposedly he's worried about the stuff spoiling in transit.

Peter, Eric and Lauren will be in Philly in April if you'd like to come up and do some negotiating.

You sure about that? I think they were going to expand to NYC a few years ago (at least my brother worked at ABC and they were in talks for advertising)...
