Thanks for this.

A quick update on Fat Tug - the BB February 2020 cans are drinking absolutely ridiculous (resinous with bright and juicy citrus flavours and a bone dry, solidly bitter finish) and cause one to consider whether this is the single best WC IPA in Canada and one of the best in North America as well. Should be good for another couple or few weeks so drink up while it's still fresh.


Despite there being no shortage of solid IPA’s available locally, Fat Tug does seem to rise above the throng and stand alone as, to me, the clear best of the style.
That's the way she goes. Sometimes she goes, sometimes it doesn't. She didn't go. That's the way she goes.

Good news, except....
if these are as old as the Florida Cracker cans (3/20/19)- nearly 6 months old - its not something I'll be buying!

I've had Jai Alai at about 2 months old and it was still tasty. But I would guess this will arrive super stale. Too bad.

Maduro Brown is coming this fall, not really exciting but probably ages better. Hopefully Cigar City sends something dark and robust as part of the winter seasonal release.

Thanks for the heads up. I went and grabbed a half case and it is indeed drinking great. Glad to see fresh(ish) cans here, as Fat Tug is one of the best WC IPAs made in Canada. Like most beers in the style, I prefer drinking this only slightly chilled – sometimes even at room temperature – as it brings out all the lovely aromatics. My guess is this current batch has another week or two to shine before the hop profile fades.


Deleted - my mistake - Fat Tug not Fat Tire.


Fat Tire now marked down a buck with a month-old BBD - do I want this?
