New Belgium Brewing is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Fat Tire with five "collabeerations" that give a twist to the fan favorite. On Thursday, July 14, loop-located Franklin Tap will welcome New Belgium brewery representative Mark Padilla for a "Fat" tap takeover and sampling event from 5 to 7 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to sample these special brews as Padilla discusses the history of the Colorado brewery and distributes merchandise. Full pints of the featured drafts will be available for $6 each (Allagash Fat Funk Ale; Avery Fat Wild Ale; Firestone Walker Fat Hoppy Ale; Hopworks Fat Sour Apple Ale; Rhinegeist Fat Pale Ale).
The original Fat Tire Amber Ale will also be offered, in addition to two summer brews (Heavy Melon Watermelon Lime Ale; Blue Paddle Pils). Draft purchases include a 25th Anniversary New Belgium keepsake globe glass.
