I can ship out Fat Tire to whoever wants it for a small charge.

You ship me a 6 pack of either your own, or local brew. I use the same box, put Fat Tire in and ship it back to you.

Sound good?

Havent had 2 Below yet, Ill go look for it this week sometime.

I had the 2 below in November and December, but I cant find it anymore. That beer was good enough to inspire me to write the brewery in appreciation. Happily enough they wrote back.

Cool, now if it were only an extract recipe. BTW, what yeast do they use?

So if I take that recipe to my LHBS, they can convert to extract for me? I really like this beer. I'm not all that crazy about Fat Tire, but what do I know? And what if I brew it and put it on top of my WY1084? That's what is in my primary now and I'm getting tired of buying yeast. I need to figure out how to save it for future brews.


And on a side note, SNPA is the hoppiest beer I've had so far. I can barely drink it.
But I would like to find a clone for Bachelor ESB or, in a pinch, RedHook ESB.

I don't really understand the popularity of Fat Tire. It must be marketing because it's just not that great. I'm not saying it's bad or anything, just not worthy of it's following IMHO.

I have said the same thing before...I think I am just over it as I have drank a ton of it and gotten some skunky cases of it too....2 Below is a much hoppier version of it, I'd say sort of like Sierra Nevada with a maltier palatte...just bought a 12'er of 2 below today, almost done with my first of many for the evening!

edit: oh, and it was on sale for $10.99/12

2 Below frankly blows Fat tire out of the water. I dont think that Fat Tire is bad beer, but it seems to be variable. Sometimes I have one and its great, sometimes its just meh.
