I have actually noticed some variability in 2 below also (I have drank a lot of it), some batches are hoppier than others, but they are all good!

Just thought I'd throw in a quick update to this thread.

I have a friend that works at a local beer/wine/liquor store with a massive beer selection. He'd had 2º Below in a bottle from the store, and was recently in my bar. He saw that we had it on tap and wanted to try a pint. He said the bottled version was MUCH hoppier than the draft. I poured a little for myself tonight, and I could detect a faint hop aroma to it, since I was looking out for it. I suppose the kegged stuff just doesn't come out quite the same.

My understading is that most of their mainline beers are not fermented with Belgian strains. To my taste buds, Fat Tire certainly isn't, for example.

I don't know about the 2 below, but I'd be pretty surprised if it were fermented with a Belgian strain.

I dont taste Belgian Yeast in most of their beers either. I have had the best luck with WLP001 Cali Ale yeast when shooting for something Fat-Tireish.
