Sufferfest Beer Company releases first-of-its-kind electrolytic, nutrient-rich pale ale.

San Francisco, Calif. (May 23, 2018) — Sufferfest Beer Company, a functional beer brand based in San Francisco, today launched the FKT, a first-of-its-kind electrolytic, nutrient rich pale ale inspired by the trail, brewed for anyone.

“FKT is the celebration of all that is gritty and idealistic within us; the extra reps, the late nights in the office, and the grind that makes us better,” said Caitlin Landesberg, CEO and founder of Sufferfest Beer Company. “We brewed FKT to meet the needs of the most ambitious among us.”

Sufferfest’s FKT contains as much electrolyte-replenishing salt as a common sports drink—over 65 mg of sodium—and aids recovery after any type of athletic exertion (while tasting great.)

The well-balanced pale ale is brewed with blackcurrants which carry four times the vitamin C as oranges per serving, and bolster gut and kidney health. It’s a well-balanced Pale Ale with a playful tanginess from the black currant and citra, azacca, and magnum hops. The beer stands on its own — the benefits are a bonus.

Sufferfest beers are truly purposed-brewed. The FKT joins Sufferfest’s star lineup: the Flyby Pilsner, Taper IPA and Shakeout Blonde are all < 5 parts per million gluten—a trace amount considered and labeled “gluten-free” in the European Union.

“We made it because it’s what our healthy and active tribe was asking for — a beer that could deliver a perfect punch of post-sweat nutrition while still tasting like the beer you want and deserve,” said Landesberg.
