Hello fellow virgin! That is great news that Fat Tire comes in cans. It is one of my favorites and it will be in my cooler as well.

Yeah I get enough of pbr in a can at home and I've heard its the unofficial canned beer of the playa, so just knowing that there is a new quality canned beer makes me happy

Hi Troyboyperez!

Any intro that tells me Fat Tire beer is now available in cans is highly informative, and okay by me . . .

I am a canned Guinness & canned Sapporo girl, myself. Both have sentimental value . . . I first tried Sapporo on the playa. :) In 2001, I was camped near Camp Haiku-4-Beer, and was invited to write a Haiku on a 2' x 1' piece of linen. They then hung it up with a bunch of others on a multi-level Wall of Rope, each haiku threaded with rope @ top & bottom (so they didn't flap in the wind too hard to read) and gave me an massive ice-cold can of Sapporo for my efforts. It was over 100 degrees that day, and I was also in love with the weirdness of the day, so it was literally the best beer of my life. :) I would need to do some digging to remember what it was I wrote, but I remember this haiku written by someone else about the rope wall:

Straw hat caught by rope
My head trapped but flexible
Back out; try again

Oh, Sapporo's not high brow or gourmet, but it is a decent golden lager, well-carbonated and very nice on a hot day. :)

Whoops! I always figured that they wouldn't bring it over from Japan if it weren't special...

once you have a website, then you qualify as a movement. Or have I misjudged the nature of the 21st century again?
