Like so many craft breweries popping up all of the U.S., Fate Brewing’s origin story may sound somewhat familiar. High profiting professional who, in the wake of a poor economy, chooses to cast off his current occupation in hopes of making a living by doing something he loves, namely brewing great craft beer. Steve McFate, a home brewer for 10 years, walked away from his successful career as a Scottsdale financer in order to pursue his passion. However, rather than begin his new venture by resting on his home brewing laurels, Steve chose to pursue the road less traveled, and that road led Steve straight to the craft beer Mecca that is Colorado. Under the Award winning supervision of Tom Hennessy at Colorado Boy Brewing, Steve spent 6 months refining his craft and learned the business of craft brewing from the bottom of the vat up. After having tried all of the beers in his current catalogue, I can tell you that it was certainly time well spent.
American Style Cream Ale: An American style Kolsch, it’s brewed with American grown corn that adds a nice sweetness to the traditionally German pale brew.
Belgian Saison: This saison is fantastic with a bright profile and a huge anise back note that’s sure to surprise the uninitiated. It’s was so good, I had to bring a growler of this one home with me.
Brown Ale: The Brown Ale is made from fresh Zythos hops yielding an uncharacteristically very hop forward brown beer.
American Pale Ale: At only 66 IBU, the American Pale is surprisingly hoppy due to its use of fresh Cascade and Zythos hops. The low IBU keeps the finish nice and clean.
Smoked Porter: Smoked using cherry wood, which stands out right from the nose, this brew is ultra smoky with a nice sweet finish. The smoke is so heavy, according to Steve “this is one porter you’ll either love or hate.”
Irish Red: Very malty and fairly sweet with a nice caramelized note that rounds out the beer. This particular brew was a GABF winner in 2011.
