Fat Tire introduced an entire generation to craft beer, with an unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability since the start.
As the urgency of the climate crisis has grown, and new avenues have emerged to reduce our impact, we’ve doubled down on climate action and advocacy using every tool we have – including becoming America’s first certified carbon neutral beer.
Craft beer has also come a long way since Fat Tire first helped put it on the map. Much like we have continued to advance our climate investments, we’ve evolved our iconic recipe to create the best Fat Tire we know how to make and mobilize a new generation to join us in a movement around climate action.
Whether you love the planet, enjoy great beer, or both – we hope you will embrace the chance to change along with us.
Fat Tire's unique flavor profile originates from 1930s Belgium. During this era, small breweries began offering easy-drinking beer crafted with signature Belgian yeast in order to satisfy the tastes of visiting British soldiers. Today, Fat Tire blends a subtle malt presence with a slightly fruity hop profile and crisp finish, to create a bright and balanced beer that drinks easy, anywhere. 5.2%
