Honestly, I haven’t thought about Minnesota all that often in my life.
Now, I can add Fulton Brewing Co. to that list of reasons to head to Minnesota someday soonish, because what they’re putting into cans is enticing enough to make me want to go right to the source.
Fulton Brewing Co. Specter – Joseph Alton, Editor-in-Chief
Love them or hate them, hazy IPAs are having quite the heyday. Characterized by its opaque appearance and softer mouthfeel, the style was popularized by breweries in the Northeast part of the country but has started to gain traction locally. Though initially reluctant to embrace the trend, Fulton’s head brewer Mikey Salo has produced an archetypal example of NEIPA. Specter is brewed with two-row barley, oats, and wheat, and is thrice dry-hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Nelson Sauvin hops. This deliciously flawed beer presents aromas of citrus and grapefruit, a creamy mouthfeel, slight hop bitterness, and a robust, juicy tropical finish.
Drinking more like a pilsner than an IPA, this is a fruity, Mosaic-hop bomb (74 IBU!) with a shocking orange-and-stone-fruit flavor. Originally brewed to celebrate Fulton’s 300th batch of beer, it’s the brewery’s best.
It’s a bit of a bittersweet celebration tonight at Fulton‘s tap room as the brewery releases their new NE IPA, Specter, a beer styled and named for Greg Sincheff, one of the brewery’s team members who lost his battle with depression. Previously known by Sincheff’s nickname “Grog”, Specter is now re-released as a tribute to Sincheff with...
On November 1st, 2016, Fulton lost one of our family members, Greg Sincheff, to depression. Greg’s loss was felt by everyone in our company, from those who had just met him to friends he worked alongside and had known for half of his life. To honor Greg’s memory, we released a Northeast-style IPA titled “Grog”, which was his nickname. $1 from each pint of Grog sold at the taproom was donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
