Tap in to the Rockies, that's got a nice ring to it. Funny you mention Fat Tire, New Belgium is one of the companies that Erik of Mystery Brewing referenced when talking about the current Standarb Bearers that he thinks aren't doing the best job. He said they're extremely invasive when they enter a new market. As I'm sure you know, tap space in a bar/restaurant is limited and therefore, breweries/distributors battle hard to get that real-estate. New Holland will come in and wipe out some little guy.
It's all over the place in NC. You can get Fat Tire at a BW3's here. I find myself not liking it much anymore. I think it's because I've had it so many times. Same thing with Sierra Nevada, I love that beer but I've had it too many times. -I did the same thing with Bells Oberon, you may know it as "Solson".
Sort of like having to take a break from your favorite record, I'm hoping I can revisit Sierra Nevada in the future and I'll like it again.
Lately I've been "overplaying" Bells Two Hearted Ale. -By lately, I mean for the past 3 years.
You have any other fav's of late?
