I love the North Loop. Personally, I’ve always considered Minneapolis’ Warehouse District to be underrated, which is a shame, considering the wealth of hidden and not-so-hidden gems this neighborhood contains. One such gem is the venerable taproom champion Fulton.
Fulton Brewing in Minneapolis, Minnesota has announced the release of a fruited variant of its popular year-round beer Lonely Blonde.
Lonely Blonde is a crisp and refreshing Blonde Ale, and its grapefruit variant is brewed with grapefruit puree and "dry-zested" with grapefruit zest.
The full release from the brewery, which also includes information on a new mixed 12-pack, is below.
I grew up in Minnesota but currently live in Chicago. This means that I often fly back to Minnesota for family occasions and holiday gatherings. The sub-hour long flight has just enough time for one round of drink service in the cabin. Typically, I opt for whiskey or plain water given the lack of craft beer offerings on most airlines. Now, that might all be changing. A few weeks ago, Minneapolis-based Fulton Brewing announced that Sun Country Airlines would be offering their Lonely Blonde Ale on flights for the first time...
Sun Country Airlines is adding alcohol from two Minnesota companies to its in-flight offerings.
Beginning March 1, Fulton Lonely Blonde and Prairie Organic gin and vodka will be available to the Eagan-based airline's passengers.
"We are proud to add these great brands to our menu and to offer guests a taste of Minnesota when they fly with us," Brian Davis, Sun Country's Chief Marketing Officer, said...
Fly local, drink local.
That’s the take-home message in Sun Country Airlines’ new onboard drink options: Fulton Lonely Blonde and Prairie Organic gin and vodka.
The easy-drinking beer from Minneapolis-based Fulton and the cocktail-ready booze from Princeton-based Prairie Organic Spirits will appear on the Eagan-based airline’s in-flight alcohol offerings beginning today.
Sun Country flights will have even more of a Minnesotan flavor starting Friday.
The Eagan-based airline announced on Thursday that it is adding more Minnesota-made booze to its in-flight menu.
As of today, passengers on all Sun Country flights will find Fulton Lonely Blonde and Prairie Organic gin and vodka among their options.
...And you're about to have two additional local drinking options onboard. Starting March 1 -- hey, that's today! -- Fulton's Lonely Blonde ale and Prairie Organic Spirits gin and vodka will be available in the skies. Fulton's the newest add-on to existing beer options (so, yes, you'll still be able to order Surly), while Prairie gin and vodka are replacing the existing booze brands.
“We’re over the moon (or at least above the clouds) about becoming part of Sun Country’s in-flight beer selection,” Fulton Director of Marketing Tucker Gerrick said in a statement...
Hopstar Session IPA | Fulton Brewing
Fulton, which had a humble beginning in a one-car garage in South Minneapolis back in 2006, has become a craft beer staple in the land of ten thousand lakes. One of Fulton’s year-round beers, the Hopstar Session IPA, is one of the many reasons why.
This session IPA is delectable. At first sniff, citrus, grapefruit and passionfruit waft from the glass – a fitting preview of flavors come. Tropical fruit is at the forefront of this brew’s light and aromatic body thanks to Citra, Mosaic and Amarillo hops. The carbonation and lightness of the drink itself, which at times tickled the taste buds, was an ideal canvas for these fruity notes. This finishes crisp and clean – and therefore leaves the drinker completely ready for another sip.
