Summer 2016 is officially underway and all sorts of interesting things are brewing locally. For this edition of Bitter Minnesota Beer of the Week, we reached out to Fulton to see what they recommend for a good summer craft beer. How about an IPA with flavors of tangerine, mango, pineapple? We're sold. Tanager sounds delicious.
