Forget Politics. Drink More Beer.

I know that I haven’t posted here in a while, but word has it that your fine state is set to receive some new beers from a great brewery: New Belgium Brewing. Fat Tire is a very popular session brew in these parts, but the brewery has more to offer than their flagship beer. I suggest you check their site for more info. Enjoy and follow your folly.

Seriously? We can buy that stuff here? Sign me up. I’ve yet to have a bad beer from them.

Fat Tire is the worst beer they make. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very drinkable. When compared with the other kick ass brews coming out of this place, it is obviously why Fat Tire is so popular with the masses. Because it is a watered down, americanized version of beer that the NASCAR crowd can drink and not feel like bumwads for a few hours.

What is a ‘bumwad’?

You should know this…
See #4.

I didn’t, but you did . . .

Fat Tire became available in the cities a few years ago, and people lined up AROUND THE BLOCK to begin buying on the first day of sale . I agree with Scott, Fat Tire is a pretty boring beer.
One thing South Dakota has going for itself is you can buy O’Dell IPA, which is without question the best IPA I’ve ever had from a bottle. I know everybody gets a boner over Bell’s Hopslam, but that is overrated too. I’m celebrating my hop-headedness by brewing an American IPA this weekend. I’m making a Legends of Wrestling commemorative homebrew series with all of the kickass wrestlers — Baron von Raschke, The Freebirds, Da Crusher, Von Erich’s, Ric Flair, Tommy Rich, Abdullah the Butcher, Bret Hart, and anymore I feel like. The commemorative paper plates sest fell through because the paint soaked in.

NB’s Trippel is a fantastic example of a superbier. And I agree with your jew friend whole heartedly. Odell’s IPA is the best damn IPA around. Here or anywhere.

Baron von Raschke – Pretty Rockin!

They don’t make wrestlers that ugly anymore.

BTW – ODell’s is tasty – As a graphic designer I like the label to, it’s deceiving which is good when it comes to spirits

I like to watch a Bud Light drink’s face when you hand them one and don’t tell them the level of hop awesomeness they are about to experience.

I know, that is what is so cool about the label. The first time I saw it, I thought “Another fucking micro-brew with some hippie label, big deal.” Then you taste it and wonder why you are getting a boner.

Out of context, I don’t know how anyone can follow that comment, but I’ll try.

Guests showed up to my house tonight with Fat Tire. The couple split one bottle. I am now stuck with 5 Fat Tires I won’t drink. (There will be a post later that will share what I did drink.

Either way, New Belgium is coming to SD. They make some fine beers. Even Fat Tire is not that bad…or at least it’s better than Bud or Natty Light.

There is this hotel Downtown Omaha that I have stayed at 3 times that I love, The Magnolia, they have a free happy hour 5-6 (I think) for guests, Free house wine and one tap, it is Fat Tire. Not the greatest beer, but a pretty damn good FREE beer. Especially after having 2 vodka martini’s . . . I’m just saying.
