If you're in Denver International Airport (New Belgium Taproom), or anywhere in Denver for that matter, try Fattie on tap. It's so smooth.
This ale is mostly malt in the nose but there are some hops mixed in there too. Quite possibly the smoothest ale on the planet. Whether the climate is hot, cold, or mild, the perfect balance of Fattie on tap is heavily drinkable. If you find yourself in a situation where the selection is lacking, in terms of "extreme" beers, choose the Fattie. You'll be glad you did.

Serving type: on-tap
