Get the 1% ABV with your kit when you order from AHB. I made my fat tire w/ this option and it turned out great. ALso use the dry yeast and you will save a little $$.
Primary: Fullers ESB Clone
Secondary: Hierra Sevada Pale Ale

you could also go with some Belgium strain to give it the little bit of tartness Fat Tire has. Something like 1762 Belgian Abbey II
