Beer Review: New Glarus Fat Squirrel

There hasn't been a single thing I wanted to talk about today. Well, not exactly. Pabst City was voted down, and Mayor Barrett had a temper tantrum at a press conference and on Mark Belling's talk show (Kevin Fischer guest hosting). But who cares, let's talk beer.

I plan on doing a lot of these as a public service to you, the consumer. My first selection is New Glarus Fat Squirrel. New Glarus is a WI brewery with a loyal following. Its Spotted Cow beer is very popular and on tap at fine bars across the area. Fat Squirrel is lesser known but excellent product. It is brown in color, lighter than Guinness, but with a similar weight. It has a lightly nutty aroma, and a strong nutty aftertaste. The aftertaste is much stronger than the inital flavor. There is a bit of a bite as you swallow and the beer travels over the length of your tongue. I would compare it to Newcastle or a similar brown ale, but with a more distinct taste.

The Squirrel is definitely a beer that you wouldn't drink 8 or 9 of while partying with friends. Well you could, but it would reek havoc on your digestive system in more ways than one. I like to have one with dinner, especially when grilling red meat. Its heaviness helps fill you up along with the meal. I normally don't like mixing beers when I drink Fat Squirrel. After I have one or two, I don't feel much like drinking more or drinking another beer. It is not a getting drunk beer; it's a beer you drink to enjoy the flavor. I purchased my six pack here, Layton Fruit Market, but it should be available at most liquor stores.
