Minneapolis' most quintessential winter event is back again and bigger than ever. Yes, we're talking about Holidazzle. If you haven't been in the past 5 years, then you're forgiven for being out of the loop on all the fun happening Thursday-Sunday down in Loring Park this time of year. Let us catch you up on some of the festivities.
Beginning Friday 11/29 a trip to Holidazzle could include anything from interactive art to ice skating and much, much more. There's movies in the park, games, shopping, great local food, and festive firework shows to name just some of the highlights. But to us, the best part is the heated Fulton Beer Garden (we're biased, admittedly). Whether you're joining us for a trivia night or just stopping through each time you're thirsty and in the area, we're back again with a menu chocked-full of Fulton favorites and hard seltzers. And to satiate those curious craft drinkers out there, we've brewed two exclusive beers just for Holidazzle. For those feeling extra festive the Small Talk Stout, a Chocolate Oatmeal Milk Stout, was brewed with you in mind. Small Talk is an exceptionally smooth, chocolatey, malty, milk stout fit for winter chills. The second exclusive Holidazzle brew is as easy-drinking as they come. Introducing our Goodwill Gold Lager; It’s light, crisp, and is best paired with another one. Both are exciting new beers and both are around for a limited time. Get yours before they're gone.
We'll skip the speeches and cut straight to the punch: Thank you. Big time. We've always been proud of our top dog, but winning the 3rd consequtive Growler Magazine Kind Of A Big Deal award for Lonely Blonde (in our 10th year, nonetheless) means a little more than it has in the past. Our journey has been your journey, MN. And, looking back on the last few years in particular we are so grateful for your support in helping us make it this far. There's a reason Lonely Blonde is one of the biggest craft beers in Minnesota. That reason is you. So thank you, from all of us here at Fulton.
The year of the Hard Seltzer isn't over just yet! Can you believe our four faithful Hard Seltzer flavors have only been around since May? We crafted our mixed 12 pack with a collection of flavors that made pleasing a group of party people easier than ever, but we never expected to win an award in the same year. Our Blood Orange flavor won gold this past weekend and we're still riding high on this achievement. Get yours in our Mixed 12packs out now wherever Fulton is sold. And, expect good things in the year ahead for Fulton Hard Seltzer...we've got more fun for you still.
Move aside, Fruit. There's about to be a new member of the Fulton Hard Seltzer family in town – Hopped! We took everyone's favorite beer ingredient and brought it firmly into the Hard Seltzer world. "What's it like?", you might ask. It's crisp, aromatic, and mega-refreshing (especially for all you hop-heads out there). And better yet, Fulton Hopped! Hard Seltzer is Gluten Free, just like our Blood Orange, Grapefruit, Berry, and Lemon Lime varieties. Look here for more information about our December release and/or follow us at @fultonbeer for updates.
HOPS, WATER, BUBBLES. 'NUFF SAID.
Let's play a game of numbers! What's zero calories, zero carbs, zero ABV and zero IBU but is flavorful, aromatic and above all- hoppy? Oh, and don't forget delicious and refreshing? No, this isn't a scam or some weird diet drink. We're talking about Fulton's Hopped Water of course. Want some? Find yourself a pint exclusively in our taproom.
It's that time of year folks were we bundle up, grab a friend or the fam and head to Loring Park for Minneapolis' most festive holiday event. You guessed it- Holidazzle. We're taking over the heated beer garden for the 5th consecutive year to bring you games, guest appearances and not one but two custom Holidazzle beers. For those who are looking for something extremely easy-drinking and familiar we have created Goodwill Gold- a super light, crispy, un-fussy Golden Lager that will surely please even the non-craft drinker in your group. And for anyone looking to ratchet-up the good times with something fit for the season we're offering Small Talk Stout- our Chocolate Oatmeal Milk Stout. It's full bodied, chocolately, and incredibly smooth. Find both special beers, Fulton favorites like Lonely Blonde and Sweet Child of Vine and 2 of our new(er) Hard Seltzers. The festival kicks off Friday November 29th at 5pm...see you there!
Our annual collaborative beer release with Jameson comes as a brand new beer to our lineup this year by way of our very first Brown Ale. Jameson Barrel-Aged Brown is the beautiful benefactor of a careful and complex marriage of malts, totaling a half dozen different varieties. Despite this hefty malt presence, it's uniquely balanced and goes down remarkably (too) easy. The beer rested over three months in Jameson Whiskey Barrels-adding to it's depth and imparting trace hints of vanilla and oak flavors. It is medium bodied and will surprise you with it's smooth texture, clean finish, and overall drinkability. This is easy, late Autumn drinking defined. You can get your hands on a pint beginning next week at select Fulton accounts across the metro.
If you're into mixed martial arts and craft beer, then we've got a dream event for you this Saturday 11/16 right here at our NE MPLS production brewery. We've brought back Fulton Brew Jitsu and it's going to be bigger and better than before. But if you don't grab your ticket now, you'll miss out on all the fun (and trust us, there's plenty of fun planned).
