DetailsFulton is one of the newest breweries to the Minneapolis scene. While they have been selling their product for a while, they just recently opened a new brewery complete with a public tap room near Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. The guys from Fulton have been shopping here for years, and we like to think we contributed in some small way to their success. To celebrate their new brewery we had the pleasure of working with them on a collaboration brew that is sure to knock your socks off.
A Libertine is a free thinker who is unrestrained by the confines of society. We think that is an apt comparison for this brew. Fulton’s Libertine is a beer that defies conventional classification, and blazes a trail all its own. It is malt forward, but it does not suffer from a lack of hop character. With a hint of rye, and an ABV that breaks the 8% threshold, this deceptively easy drinking brew is sure to bring out your inner “Free thinker”.

5.0 / 5.015 ReviewsJuly 31, 2012One of my favoritesI love this beer it has a great taste and is smooth drinkingMarch 22, 2016RingerThis is an excellent recipe and iteration of the Libertine.December 8, 2012High QualityRather than domestic 2 row, this recipe uses Marris Otter malt, and the taste is terrific. I really enjoyed using the grain sin this kit, as I don't have experience with them. I used the #051 liquid yeast, nothing but the best for a kit of this quality.December 18, 2012Better than the extract kitI've brewed both the extract and the all grain kit and this is better because of the Maris Otter grain instead of the domestic 2-row. This kit makes a great tasting clone, and if you are going through the expense and time, then do it right and use teh liquid yeast. Give it at least 6 months to age to really enjoy it.April 6, 2013Good Red AleI used the White Labs liquid yeast with a 2 quart starter. I left it in the primary for 4 weeks and the secondary for 6 months. When I bottled it, I added in some dry yeast, in case the yeast had all died off. This is an Imperial Red and it reminds me of an Irish Red but has all the flavor you expect from an Imperial Ale. The Rye adds further flavor and complexity to an overall nice flavorful beer.June 13, 2013Best Beer to Date!This is probably the tenth kit I've made, and I would have to say it's my favorite so far! I let it age only a month, kegged it, and the taste is terrific. This beer can be enjoyed on a hot summer day or a cold winter night.August 7, 2013The All Grain kit makes a better beer than the extract kitThis is one of my favorite kits. I've tried both Midwest kits, this and the extract kit, and this is better. This uses Maris Otter while the extract kit uses 2 row , and for this beer it makes a difference. I use the White Labs yeast and age it for several months after kegging it.August 17, 2013red rye imperialWOW! 9% ABV in my kit. Very nice beer! Rye was somewhat in the background, not too strong. The Maris Otter gave it an incredible mouth fell and flavor.August 22, 2013
