Fulton Brewing Announces 5th Annual Fulton Gran Fondo

Fulton Brewing Announces 5th Annual Fulton Gran Fondo

Fulton Beer in Minneapolis, Minnesota has announced its 5th Annual Gran Fondo. The Gran Fondo is a 100-mile bike, band and beer ride starting from the brewery's headquarters in Minneapolis. There is also a 45-50-mile "Medio" Fondo for less experience riders. A free-to-attend block party at the brewery is happening in honor of the Fondo with food, limited-release beers and other activities planned. More details will follow.

Here's the full release from Fulton:


It's back.

Join us Saturday,  May 12th for the 5th annual Fulton Gran Fondo for bikes, bands, and beers. The ride departs in the morning from the Fulton Production Brewery in NE Minneapolis. This year, we're again offering the 100 mile "Gran" as well as a shorter (45-50 mile) "Medio" Fondo. The block party is free to attend and open to all who come. Party details including beers available, food options, partners, activities,  and band announcements are coming soon. 

HOW MANY MILES IS ENOUGH? CHOOSE YOUR FONDO.

The Fulton Gran Fondo Route
The original, the big one, the Gran Fondo. 100 miles encompassing urban riding, trails, suburban county roads and makes stops at 3 aid stations along the way. Just 39.95 from now through the end of March. Your ride registration comes with a custom Fondo t-shirt, a free beer at the block party, and a goody bag of fun stuff.

The Fulton Medio Fondo Route
Maybe you're new to cycling. Maybe you're just getting your season off to a solid but moderate start. Maybe sitting still for 100 miles isn't in the cards. Let's be honest, 50 miles is still plenty far for a Saturday morning! Whatever the reason, the Medio is here for you. It's all the fun but half the distance, and still offers an aid stop in the middle. Just 39.95 from now through the end of March. Your ride registration comes with a custom Fondo t-shirt, a free beer at the block party, and a goody bag of fun stuff.

This year, we're offering a brand new, custom Fulton Gran Fondo jersey. Designed by our friends at Twin Six , with fully sublimated graphics, these jerseys will only be available for a limited time -- when they're gone, they're gone. Get yours (along with your ride registration and feast tickets) here. 

Join us for a pre-ride feast at packet pickup on Friday, May 11 at our NE brewery. Chef Scott Pampuch and The Fulton Taproom Kitchen crew will be cooking up goodies fit for someone about to ride 100 miles on a bike. Menu will be released soon, and no, this is not a spaghetti dinner. Friday night will also be the first tapping of our top secret new limited release beer for the summer.
