MINNEAPOLIS - Fulton Brewing Company has launched a limited-edition American pale ale to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Star Tribune.
“After 150 years, it’s only appropriate that we take a moment to salute one of our state’s great institutions,” said Ryan Petz, president of Fulton Brewing.
The ale will be available to the public at the Fulton Taproom on May 25, the 150th anniversary of the Star Tribune’s first date of publication in 1867. It will be sold throughout the state the following day and will be featured at the Stone Arch Bridge Festival in mid-June.
Brewers notes 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.
