Sochi Series article featured in The Growler
Fitger’s Brewhouse brings the spirit of competition and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi a little closer to home.
Duluth’s very own Fitger’s Brewhouse shows it’s patriotism this winter season with their new Olympic-themed Sochi Series. Making it’s debut at the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild’s Winterfest, happening in St. Paul’s newly renovated Union Depot on January 31st , this series comes fully loaded with seven beers as well as t-shirts, artist screen prints, and themed pint glasses to match. All of the art for this series is done by Duluth local Maxwell McGruder, the company’s primary designer, giving it the classic and recognizable Fitger’s Brewhouse look.
What makes this series stand out this winter season is that each of the seven beers was created by a different brewer. This is a perfect opportunity for the up-and-coming brewers at the Brewhouse to show off their skills with their own recipes. In true Olympic spirit, the Fitger’s brewers are taking it to another level by introducing some friendly competition between the beers. Since the Olympics pit USA against the rest of the world for us Americans, Fitger’s is doing the same with their IPAs—they’ve got one beer brewed with 25 different kinds of hops from around the world competing against another brewed with 25 different kinds of hops from the US.
