What's better than a beer dedicated to a bike? Having a beer while on a bike?

Any of you had Fat Tire Ale? Its got a earthy, caramel, buttered-toast taste with just a twinge of lemon. I'm quite a fan.

A six pack that is a mix of different beers instead of six of the same kind
Exactly, at the grocery store here they have a six pack cardboard carrier that you can load with what you want. It works out great for me. I may only drink a beer one week then nothing for 2-3 weeks then drink another so to try numerous different beers I would have to buy a 6 pack then finish it then buy another of a different style. This way I get 6 different beer to try. The last mix was sort of bad, I have found I am not much of a fan of Wheat beers. But the Fat Tire Ale was so good I broke tradition and bought me a full 6 pack of it. I have already drank 3 out of it and 2 were drank in one day, I am a party animal..:p

whoever thought up the build your own six pack thing is a hero of mine :D

And to stay on topic, they are finally starting to get the new cans of fat tire at the liquor stores here. I was wondering when I'd start seeing those.

Woohoo. I just got done talking to my sister. She advised me that her husband's cousin just married someone that runs, owns, or works for New Belgium Brewing. I am trying to earn some points and get some cool free stuff.

Fat Tire is the new standard by which all beers in my future must be measured.

I received a bottle from a buddy as a 'welcome-home' gift when I returned to my old work location (temporary transfer and significant injury, 8 months away). I still have the empty bottle as a memento.

I've been told 1554 is good by this same bud; I'll find out soon. So far, after about three months of frantic taste-testing and brand-switching, there are a couple of Samuel Adams beers that come CLOSE, but still don't match Fat Tire. (Irish Red and Dunkelweisen, btw)

I am about as big a beer fan, as I am a cycling fan but I haven't had the Fat Tire Ale. I have looked all over Boston and the surrounding areas for it. If anyone in the New England area knows where I can find some, please let me know. Everything I have heard about it has been great.

Nothing east of Indiana or north of Tennesee and North Carolina.
