We're bigger than beer

SPRING IS NEAR.
Posted Tuesday March 4, 2014
No, really.

THE EXPAT IS BACK IN BARS TODAY & TAPROOM TOMORROW

Reason #1 to believe spring is almost here: The Expat, our spring seasonal, is back! If you didn't come across it last year, Expat was Fulton's first production beer fermented with a yeast other than our house ale yeast. The combination of the French saison yeast, a heavy addition of rye into the grain bill, and Sterling hops makes for a unique take on the classic saison heritage: The Expat is crisp, dry and refreshing, punctuated by a pronounced spicy character that makes it both a delightful food pairing and great on its own. Get your first Expat of the season this evening from our neighbors over at Smack Shack. They'll be preparing a special Fat Tuesday feast alongside their delicious daily menu items. Then, starting tomorrow, you can get Expat in pints ($5) and growlers ($13/fill) in the taproom. Expat will be available (once again it will be draft only this year) in bars & restaurants across the metro area throughout the spring.

FARM-SHARE (CSA) SIGN-UPS HAPPENING NOW

Reason #2 to believe spring is almost here: Our friends at Tangletown Gardens are taking sign-ups for CSAs!  Tangletown offers two options, a full share and a half share. Each is chock full of a delicious and ever-changing variety of locally grown produce, so the decision is just a matter of how much you and your family can eat. As in years past, our downtown brewery is one of several pickup location options. This year's brewery pickup day will be on Wednesdays from 4-6 -- which coincides nicely with our taproom hours, we might add. You can sign up on Tangletown's website,via mail, or by picking up a form next time you swing by our taproom. The deadline to sign up is March 15th, so don't let it slip to the bottom of your list.

WAR & PEACE BRUNCH FRIDAY, PLUS MORE MARCH EVENTS

We have some great events on the docket for March. This Friday, Lyndale Taphouse will have a War & Peace brunch special featuring two delightful breakfast entree options, a glass of War & Peace and a bottomless cup of Peace Coffee, all for just $10.95. On Sunday, March 16th, let's head to Butcher & The Boar to celebrate their 2nd birthday! And (thankfully) unlike most 2 year olds, B&TB is really into beer. They will be celebrating with 10 Fulton beers on tap (including two never-before served) as well as a custom cocktail concotion featuring our brewery-made Citrus Ginger Ale.
