Created as the ultimate craft beer pairing for wings and sports, Fandom Ale (Fusion XXXIX) from Lagunitas Brewing Company (Petaluma, California) is a limited release offering currently available nationwide at all Buffalo Wild Wings locations.
In an effort to constantly improve and provide guests with the best experience possible, the Buffalo Wild Wings team recently surveyed patrons to better understand what beer options they most enjoy while visiting the restaurant. The results: “guests showed they enjoy balanced, easy-drinking beers with full flavor, specifically wheat beers and pale ales.” The restaurant shared their findings with the folks at Lagunitas Brewing Company, and it was then decided that the brewery could put this information to work in the creation of the 39th installment in their Fusion Series, Fandom Ale. Dark golden in color, this offering is a full-flavored hybrid of the American Wheat Beer and American Pale Ale styles. The beer’s citrus aromatics and balanced malt presence and hop notes have been carefully crafted to be the perfect combination to stand “up to hot, spicy wings without overpowering the palate.” At just 5.5% ABV, the easy-drinking Fandom Ale can be enjoyed either as an accompaniment to your favorite meal at Buffalo Wild Wings or on its own while watching the game.
“Everything we do, from our food to beverages and in-restaurant viewing experience, is for our love of the sports fan,” said Todd Kronebusch, vice president of guest innovation at Buffalo Wild Wings. “We’re upping our game in craft beer innovation by offering this limited release from Lagunitas Brewing Company, which was designed with the sports fan in mind.”
“Fandom Ale is the 39th of our ‘Fusion’ craft beers, a special series in which we brew unique recipes in batches with very special limited releases that reflect a true fusion of the creativity and ideas of our brand,” said Karen Hamilton, director of communications for Lagunitas Brewing Company. “We worked to come up with something approachable, interesting and fun for sports fans. We’re excited that Fandom Ale will be the first Fusion to be distributed to every state in the country.”
Fandom Ale is available now on draft at all Buffalo Wild Wings locations in the United States. This beer is only available for a limited time, so be sure to order one up the next time you cheer your team to victory at your local Buffalo Wild Wings. Prost!
