To celebrate 25 years of brewing, New Belgium has put together a one-of-a-kind collaboration mix-pack that features its flagship beer and all the different ways it could be tweaked to make a new brew. With the help from their friends from five different breweries, they’ve come up with five new beers that show us just how far craft brewing has come in all those years. And alongside all those new collaborations in this 12-pack is the inspirational beer itself, Fat Tire.

Allagash Fat Funk Ale – This heavily Belgian-inspired beer is all funk, spice and fruity yeast flavors. 5.6% ABV

Avery Fat Wild Ale – Wild yeast brings out tropical fruit in this ale, with a great malt backbone and good hop aroma. 6.2% ABV

Hopsworks Fat Sour Apple Ale – Juicy tartness is imparted by apple juice, which fades well into a nice maltiness. 5.9% ABV

Firestone Walker Fat Hoppy Ale – Tropical and herbal hops play over a caramel-y base. 6% ABV

Rhinegeist Fat Pale Ale – Citrus and floral hops add novelty to the base beer. 6% ABV

If you’re looking for a chance to try these collaboration beers, there are a number of retailers who have the 12-packs available, as well as drafts available at some bars, including a few New Belgium events.
