Since most of you live in Minnesota, it’s always good to start with a local brewery when entertaining new friends. Fulton is pretty much a household name thanks to Sweet Child of Vine, Lonely Blonde, and a slew of other delicious beers. But you’re making new friends, you can’t go with just any Fulton beer. This Brett IPA is something special...
Game Informer is partnering with Fulton Brewery in Minneapolis for a special release of the brewery’s 300 Mosaic IPA in conjunction with the 300th issue. To commemorate the 300th issue, limited edition six-packs will feature art inspired by one of the magazine’s five collectible covers.

Besides celebrating this achievement with a party we've put on with Fulton brewery, we also commissioned five beautiful covers that celebrate some of gaming's finest works and eras by artist Greg Semkov. We chose our covers on a number of factors, including giving classics that we never did a cover story on a chance to grace the cover of Game Informer as well as picking genre-diverse titles in order to present the rich breadth of gaming. The four games chosen four special covers are Red Dead Redemption, Minecraft, Metroid, and World Of Warcraft. The fifth cover is a both a callback to the original magazine design from 1991 as well as a thematic piece of art intended to capture the enthralling experience of falling in love with the world of video games for the first time.
Fulton's 300 Mosaic IPA -- a celebrated West Coast IPA that packs a 7 percent ABV wallop -- honors Game Informer, the sneakily massive video game magazine that's about to drop its 300th issue. As you'll notice in the above photo, the re-labeled 300 cribs Game Informer's cover logo typeface.

Bright copper color. Toasty aromas and flavors of freshly buttered toast and fancy citrus and herb soap with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, dry medium body and a graceful, medium-long salty roasted nuts, taro and root vegetable chips, and bit of asparagus frittata finish. A rich, dry crisp lager for everyday enjoyment.
