The Sink Celebrates 25 years of New Belgium Brewing with Exclusive Tapping
New Belgium Brewing’s Fat Tire & Friends Collaboration Beers Available On Tap at The Sink
BOULDER, Colo. (June 23, 2016)— The Sink, a Boulder institution on The Hill since 1923, has been serving New Belgium Brewing’s Fat Tire Amber Ale for 23 years. So it only makes sense that The Sink will be the only place in Boulder to tap all five of the brewery’s Fat Tire & Friends Collabeeration beers during a special event this Friday, June 24th at 5:00pm MT.
The “Collabeeration” beers celebrate New Belgium Brewing’s 25th birthday. The brewery handpicked five of the best craft breweries in the country and let them pay tribute to its iconic Belgian Ale, Fat Tire Amber Ale. The Sink is excited to tap all five iterations, including:
- Fat Sour Apple Ale, brewed in collaboration with Hopworks Urban Brewery, located in Portland, Ore.
- Fat Pale Ale, brewed in collaboration with Rhinegeist Brewery, located in Cincinnati, Ohio.
- Fat Hoppy Ale, brewed in collaboration with Firestone Walker Brewing Co., located in Paso Robles, Calif.
- Fat Funk Ale, brewed in collaboration with Allagash Brewing Co., located in Portland, Maine.
- Fat Wild Ale, brewed in collaboration with Avery Brewing Co., located in Boulder, Colo.
“We were one of the first spots in Colorado to have New Belgium’s Fat Tire on tap once distribution reached Boulder,” remembers Chris Heinritz, co-owner of The Sink. “That was 23 years ago, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with them for these special releases.”
Attendees of the tapping party get to take home a New Belgium Globe Glass with their first purchase of a New Belgium beer. Pints will cost $5.50. For more information, visit www.newbelgium.com
