Can Do!

Here it is, just off the line and popping fresh.

New Belgium Brewing started canning Fat Tire Amber Ale today. By mid-June, the cans should be available in limited markets, including Denver stores.

“We are looking forward to introducing our old friend, Fat Tire, in a brand new package,” says Bryan Simpson, spokesman for New Belgium. “As we fire up the line for our initial runs, we are celebrating the new adventures of Fat Tire.”

We'll drink to that. -- Patricia Calhoun
