    Anyone live where this is sold? Had a sixer of it on a road trip last year, but can't recall where we bought it. Absolutely loved it, and trying to find out where to get some more.

    I'm assuming more information can be found here.

    Since we've got an obscure beer thread going, let me ask the public this:

    Is there a way to ship beer? I know people out west who have access to Fat Tire Amber Ale, which I really enjoyed when I was out west. I've never seen it east of the Mississippi, though. I actually tried mailing a six-pack of Yuengling to someone years back and was told I couldn't because beer contains alcohol and is potentially explosive.

    I'm assuming the answer is just as easy as finding an online brewery distribution site or something like that.

    The link I provided above was to a rare beer club. I get monthly shipments of beer from them via DHL...

    Aight, cool. Question answered! Thank you, drippy.

    EDIT: Oooh, that poor dude's name is Micheal Jackson. :( 

    EDIT 2: ...and a cursory google-search finds me http://www.beeronthewall.com/ 's online store!

    You know, for someone who lives 30 minutes from the New Belgium Brewery, I've never cared for Fat Tire.

    The stuff is everywhere here. Hell, if you can't find anything, I could probably just ship it to you.

    Though I would caution you...every state has different laws relating to alcohol.

    Funny, Fat Tire is extremely common these days out in my neck of the woods. And I don't even care for it!

    Michael Jackson is one of the biggest scotch and beer tasting experts in the world. Shame about the name.

    Fat Tire is the bomb. It's sold under the counter at two Athens, GA bars, where you have to ask for it by name like it's illegal. It's bizarre, and while it's good, it's not as good as the markup they charge.
    That's true. But it doesn't show distribution areas, and I was hoping I'd get a response here faster and more specific than emailing them.

    I wonder if Fat Tire is to the west what Dominion is to the east - readily accessible locally, but a big thing if you're from out of town. I've had friends down here try Dominion and really go crazy about the taste, but...I mean, it's local. I could go out and buy a six pack of Dominion whenever I wanted.

    Speaking of Belgians, while I'm not the biggest fan, this is probably in the top two or three I've ever had.

    It's almost a guarantee that all of the grocery stores around here carry Fat Tire by the case. It's a certainty if I go to a specialty store.

    I've never heard of Dominion, but I wasn't really into microbrews when I lived up there. Do they distribute outside of the state?

    And hey, does Sweetwater Brewery get up to VA yet?

    Probably. A lot of people here like Fat Tire, and most of what the NBB has to offer. I prefer Sunshine Wheat over Fat Tire, personally. But again, it's on draft everywhere here so it's no big deal.

    I remember visiting Mesa four-ish years ago and people were going ape shit that the Texas Roadhouse had Fat Tire!

    It was a big deal a couple of years ago when it came out this far west too.

    It's not a bad beer by any means. But I like their 1554 probably the best.

    If I ever get my beer bar - pub going, y'all have to come by and visit. Drinks are on me.

    Course now that I think about it, even if I don't get the business going, I almost always have a couple of kegs filled with something that's tasty. :D

    I guess I take things for granted, I haven't had a Fat Tire in years.

    If anyone ever gets close to Louisville, you should check out my local brewpub for Hoptimus. Its tasty, if you like really hoppy beers. I'll even buy a round (this is limited to the first five people)

    But being transformers fans, you should drink it just for its name, and like it....
