lets not forget the old elephant foot IPA in the 16 oz cans from Tampa Bay Brewing Company. That is some good drinking.
Madison, probably not. They are mostly local to Tampa Bay. So... you should come visit! :)
Love the suggestions! A good substitution is the way to convert those who didn't even know they needed converting. I haven't tried a majority of these and wonder if I can get a hold of them in North Carolina?
Are hipsters trying to make canned beer popular? Beer needs to be in dark glass. If it's not in glass, you're better off drinking Bud Light.
lets see Aluminum must be mined and that is damaging to environment and there is that BPA- endocrine distruptor used to coat all CANS. there is no aluminum can made without any BPA. GLASS IS INERT TO HUMANS. I will stick to glass and growlers - you can keep the cheap easy to ship cans
NY'er who was in Nashville for a conference.
Not into those hoppy foo foo beers regular aficionados claim to be the best. The bar I went to had this on tap, never heard of it before. It was the first "micro"brew that I liked, and I more than liked it, it was damn good. Don't be a hater.
BTW - My usual beer is Amstel Light, plentiful in NY, not quite as refined as the beers you beer snobs claim to like which taste like someone took a hoppy crap into sweaty sock juices for a few weeks.
I am going to echo the gist of post #1. This sounds like the claptrap ramblings of a snooty elitist . Fat tire is delicious. It's a simple, drinkable microbrew . I've tried the 1554 and you know what? Meh. To each his own.
There's nothing wrong with admitting you like fat tire. I may be experiencing 'grass is always greener' syndrome because I live up north and only get it when I travel down to South Carolina. but I did use to live in colorado and the taste evokes good memories. so put that in your pipe and smoke it, beertender!
I really enjoy Fat Tire and I am all about someone expressing their opinion but if you are putting down Fat Tire so much ... why don't you give us Fat Tire lovers other Amber options to try. What amber do you recommend so highly?
I understand if your a little annoyed by Fat Tires dominance in the craft brew market but come on.
You should be happy about this, it can only convert people to better beer on down the line. A few years ago I came upon Fat Tire purely by accident in a bar with a friend neither of us knew what Fat Tire was and tried it on impulse. This was after having other beers such as miller light so when we tasted it it was like heaven for us. This was back when you could only get Fat Tire at certain bars or specialty beer stores but even then I knew it was superior to many mass produced beers. Of course the point being after that my friend and I started going out to brewpubs discovering a whole different culture of craft brewing and also different beers. I would never have discovered any of this without first trying Fat Tire. Plus I just went down the street to my local convenience store and bought a 6 pack of Fat Tire, where it was flanked by New Belgiums 1554 beer plus a local Brew. That's progress man! Anyway you slice it, at least we now have a choice of better beer when we go to the supermarket or even Wal Mart! Small steps dude. Who knows in a few more years we may see Arrogant bastard ale at the 7 Eleven.
You are full of yourself. You sound like a snooty elitist who believes that if a beer is liked by the masses, then there must be something wrong with it because common people are incapable of having a refined pallet such as yours.
Fat Tire, when drank from a a cold clean tap is superior to most if not all the Amber Ales.
