Brian Wahlstrom, manager for Hy-Vee Wine and Spirts, suggests Fulton Beer’s Lonely Blonde, a blonde ale out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. “It would be a good contrast to the spice,” he said. “It’s just a super good beer.” Wahlstrom describes Lonely Blonde as being nice and soft that isn’t as hoppy as some beers and won’t overpower the flavors in the chili.

Culture Project One From Fulton Beer
The debut Culture Project beer from Fulton is a tart red ale — aged in oak wine barrels — that is notably dry with some lovely cherry notes and plenty of acid bite. Complex, and part of the “beer is the Upper Midwest’s wine” story we’ve been telling for the past eight years.

Fulton head brewer and co-owner Mike Salo really doesn’t like the term “sour beer.” The term is limiting for a broad style of beers that deserve to be appreciated without the preconceived notions that “sour” may instill. Understanding the need for some frame of reference, Fulton aptly describes Culture Project No. One as a “tart red ale inspired by the Flemish tradition.” The beer, brewed with a diverse malt bill and saison yeast, was aged for about a year in cabernet barrels. The result is a delicately balanced, bright, refreshing take on a traditional red ale. Fruity, and with a whiff of barnyard funk on the nose, the most predominant flavors are a heavy dose of ripe cherry and some complex stone fruit. It drinks juicy, but finishes very dry with a bright, green apple tartness. As Mikey Salo says, “Drink it, think about it, enjoy it.”

Minneapolis, Minnesota
"It’s clean and crisp with a nice American hop bite. While there were plenty of great beers throughout the year, none were as easy to drink while still being flavorful. Even better, it won't burn you out if you drink pint after pint." -- Ben Brausen, writer, Craft Beer Time
