Here’s more about Fat Bottom:
Fat Bottom’s full-flavored brews are bigger and more exciting than other beers in town. Our signature brews represent a sophisticated array of styles perfected over many years, with a few unique twists. Ben has refined each recipe and sourced the highest quality ingredients for every batch of specially crafted Fat Bottom beer.
Our beer is unfiltered, so you can savor the unique cloudy appearance and subtle flavors that truly bring craft beer to life. We like the bolder hops flavors, distinct body of aromas, and the beautiful color compounds that come from the natural grains. Unfiltered beers also have more nutrients from yeast and barley malt, including B vitamins which have been shown to reduce the effects of hangovers… a little added benefit for those of us who seriously love beer.
