Fulton Beer Releasing Hopstar & Extra! Extra! Cans

imageFrom Fulton Beer:

This week, we’re releasing not one but TWO all-new beers in cans. The first is “Hopstar”, our Northeast-style (read: hazy and twice-dry hopped) Session IPA. If you attended the Gran Fondo or have been in our taproom or a select number of bars in the last two weeks, you may have already enjoyed a Hopstar or two on draft. Beginning this week, Hopstar cans hit distribution in the metro area, with the rest of the state following shortly thereafter. Hopstar has already become a crowd favorite, so pick up a 4-pack when you see it – it won’t be around for long. In fact, pick up a couple of them: Hopstar resonates with juicy tropical hop notes from Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic, but at just 4.9% ABV and a pleasingly balanced 37 IBUs, you’ll find the cans emptying themselves at an astonishing rate.

Speaking of limited edition canned beers you may have already been hearing about, we’re also releasing “Extra! Extra!” this week. This one is a collaboration with our neighbors—you may have heard of them—at the Star Tribune. This Thursday, May 26th, is the Star Tribune’s 150th anniversary, and as part of their summer-long sesquicentennial celebration, we came up with a beer that’s both timeless and all-new. It’s an interpretation of the classic American Pale Ale style, but brewed with the addition of an experimental hop variety, dubbed simply “09326”. Extra! Extra! launches at our taproom on Thursday, and will be available—again, in very limited quantities—in 4-pack 16 oz cans in liquor stores this week as well.

EXTRA! EXTRA! American Pale Ale

BREWER'S NOTES ON EXTRA! EXTRA! FROM FULTON HEAD BREWER MIKE SALO

Extra! Extra! Pale Ale is an American pale ale made with American pilsner malt and high-quality German specialty malts. This beer features Cascade hops as well as a new experimental variety (09326) that is a daughter of Cascade. These ingredients come together to create a pleasantly crisp and aromatic pale ale with notes of citrus and tropical fruit.
