2018's Music Lineup is...
It's not easy lining up as many incredible artists as we do. But, we did. This year's lineup is full of fun.
CITRUS WHEAT ALE
#PartyBrand. The Fulton Gran Fondo is many things, but it's centered around two in particular: Bikes & Beer. This year we took the importance of those two pillars to heart and set forth on a path to elevate and highlight them as best we know how. We'd tossed around the idea of collaborating on a beer with our friends All-City Cycles for years, but the right opportunity never presented itself. Until now. Taking inspiration from their premier Gravel/All-Road/Endurance bike, The Cosmic Stallion, we've created a classic Wheat Ale highlighted by a burst of citrus and punctuated by Fulton's signature style of Midwestern approachability. It's the quintessential "bike beer" and to us represents Summer in a can. It's debuting Friday, May 11th at the Friday Fondo Feast and you can grab your tickets here. And when you do so, get automatically entered to win an All-City Cycles' Cosmic Stallion bike.

With a wide range of deposit and lending products, we can meet the needs of anyone looking for an alternative to conventional banking.
