1554 has become a regular staple in my house. I am a huge Fat tire fan and figured I would try some of New Belgium's other beers. They are quickly becoming my favorite brewery and is always in my house. They have a great variety pack at Costco. unfortunately 1554 is not apart of that pack. Good stuff.

Great tasting beer all around. Great head, great lacing, it is real smooth to drink. I would definitely recommend this beer to everyone. I was reluctant to try this beer after tasting the "Mother Ship" from New Belgium. I do love their "Fat Tire" beer. I finally tried the "1554", it is great, definitely on my list of must-haves when I have a little extra cash.

One thing I wish New Belgium would do, reduce the price of their 6/12 pack bottles by a few dollars, they would sell non-stop.

Love New Belgium beers!
