CULTURE PROJECT #2 AVAILABLE NOW
Posted Wednesday April 12, 2017

How do you build character in a beer?

That's a pretty big question depending on who you ask (and can be answered in both long and short form). For us at Fulton the answer takes many forms, too. We introduced our new Mixed-Culture Fermentation series aptly titled "Culture Project' earlier this year as a segment of our beer portfolio with an ever-changing set of characteristics. Each release in this series undergoes primary fermentation in stainless with Sacchraromyces, but it's what comes next that builds character. For Culture Two, we introduced a blend of Brettanomyces, Pediococcus and Lactic Acid Bacteria and aged it in oak for nearly 2 years. This week we're happily seeing our 2nd release of this series show up on shelves at finer bottle shops around the metro. It's an exceedingly dry, golden-colored ale that wears a gentle acidity. With hints of oak, citrus and wine this might be our most complex beer to date. We urge you to grab a bottle for a special dinner or occasion, as each beer in this series seems almost destined for food pairings.

Fulton Gran Fondo & Friday Feast
Posted Monday April 10, 2017

With each new spring season that arrives, so comes the intense internal planning we subject ourselves to for our annual Fulton Gran Fondo event. And though on a day like today it doesn't feel so spring-like, nevertheless we've been as busy as ever trying to pour as much fun into one day as possible. That said, we realized that one (day) wasn't going to be enough this year. That's why we've added a whole new event the night before Fondo. For riders of the following day's 50 and 100 mile rides thinking "oh great, a spaghetti dinner", just throw that notion out the window. We've teamed up with our good friends and partners at Chef Camp to put together a Whole Hog Feast. Chef Camp chefs Erik Sather and Yia Vang will be harnessing the flame and dishing up a hearty whole-hog feast fit for a king (or someone biking 100 miles). And since we've introduced a whole new night we thought why not introduce a brand new beer we're calling "HOPSTAR". It's a hazy, crushable, hop-punch to your taste buds and comes out in cans just in time for the kick-off of summer.

Gates open at 4 for Fondo Packet Pickup and for a Happy Hour.

Food service begins at 5pm and runs till 8pm.

Live music at 8pm.

Event ends at 9pm.

Grab your ticket ahead of time to insure your spot (and by which, we mean dinner).

Fulton Gran Fondo

Want to ride with us on May 6th? Registration is still only $54.95 through 4/30. 

Fulton Gran Fondo Friday Whole Hog Feast

Tickets for Friday's Whole Hog feast are limited. Beer, however, is not (we've got plenty).
