Postmortem Brew Review
True amber coloration.
Nutty maltiness and with hops you can taste.

Rich, frothy head pour with rings and clumps of lacing.
Medium bodied mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Ironically, yours truly is reporting "live" from the Rocky Mountains in these upcoming episodes. Oh, I know you hate the droll pun as much as I, but here's my report.

Fat Tire is a brew from these parts that is a local phenomenon. According to the website, the brewery was born from a passion for home brewing. So much passion, that it grew into a business. You can read the passion at their website. You can see it in the labeling. But where it shines best is where you taste it in the brew.

Along with several other brews, this ale is the 'signature' of their craft. Since I'm in town for another day, it will be worth a trip to see their brewing in action. I wonder if we can get some on the east coast? It's good!
