German Fat Cap is back back!!





North Loop, MPLS, MN – September 27th, 2018


German Fatcap – our super limited, super seasonal, German IPA – is back! It’s our version of an Octoberfest and it will be released beginning in *GASP* October.  Starting on Monday 10/1, you’ll be able to find GFC at liquor stores throughout the metro (full list below). Named after a type of spraypaint nozzle, the artwork on the can’s front pays tribute to the classic design of American spraypaint cans – while the artwork on the back features 4 distinctly different rail cars that have all been uhhh modified. The beer will also be available to try in our taproom beginning Tuesday, Octobeer 2nd.

German Fatcap takes its name from a certain type of spraypaint nozzle (colloquially known as caps), which gained popularity in the graffiti world for their ability to quickly unload large amounts of paint in a clean circle the size of a basketball. German Fatcap’s 2018 artwork features from some special guest artists including: Jurnes TGE YME HM- @scienceism, Value HM- @supervaluable, Much HM IBD- @seesomethingspraysomething, and Hindue GTB with a special appearance from Mber HM NSF Network & Yen 34 HM SWS @heavymetalgang



German Fatcap is our answer to an Octoberfest beer. A crispy malty festbier brewed with a German water profile, German malts, German hops, and German yeast – then aggresively hopped like an American IPA. Its bold hop character balances the rich malt backbone to create thick a FAT CAP of aromatic foam.
