According to the label, Fulton & Wood Sour Ale is 4 percent ABV beer will have fresh melon aromas and a tart, crisp finish as well as a 28 IBU rating. The hops for the beer are coming from Elk Mountain Farms in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.
Fulton & Wood Sour Ale will be available in 12-ounce bottles.
The brewery was contacted with questions regarding price and release date, but did not immediately respond.
