(Minneapolis, MN) – The April 2018 edition of Game Informer marks the magazine’s 300th issue. What began as a small publication created in a Minneapolis suburb is now the fourth-largest consumer magazine in the U.S., with an average circulation of over 7.5 million monthly paid subscribers.
To honor the achievement of reaching 300 issues, Game Informer has partnered with North Loop neighbors Fulton Brewing for a special release of the brewery’s award-winning 300 Mosaic India Pale Ale. Limited edition six-packs of the 300 IPA featuring art inspired by one of the magazine’s five collectible covers will start appearing in stores beginning the week of February 26.
To further celebrate the collaboration, Fulton is throwing a party at its North Loop taproom on March 3rd. During the event, Game Informer will reveal five unique covers for the issue and discuss the Top 300 Games of All Time featured in the magazine. The digital edition of Game Informer’s April issue will be on sale and available to subscribers March 3rd ; distribution of the print edition will begin March 9 th.
“We originally released this beer as a celebration of our 300th batch at our original downtown brewery,” says Fulton director of marketing Tucker Gerrick. “Now, we’re celebrating 300 in a whole new light as we commemorate the 300th issue from our friends, and North Loop neighbors, Game Informer.”
With the publication’s content being guided by longstanding editor-in-chief Andy McNamara, Game Informer has been honing its print and digital magazine craft from its North Loop headquarters for 17 years of its 27-year existence. Game Informer continues to thrive as the authoritative source of the video game industry news.
“Since its inception, Game Informer has been driven by a passion for games and gamers,” says McNamara. “This simple mantra has taken Game Informer and its readers on a journey no one could have ever predicted, and we are thrilled to celebrate this achievement with Fulton. To sit back, sip a 300 brew with our friends from around the world and reflect after all these years is truly something special.”
The March 3rd taproom celebration is open to the general public from 12:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Space may be limited, so go to gameinformer.com/joinus to RSVP. Game Informer will also livestream the cover reveals and discuss the Top 300 Games of All Time on Twitch.tv/gameinformer at 2:00 p.m.
Fulton Beer was founded by four homebrewers in a Southwest Minneapolis garage in 2009 with the mantra “Ordinary Guys Brewing Extraordinary Beer.” Since then, Fulton has become one of the fastest growing breweries in the Midwest. In 2012, Fulton opened the first taproom in Minneapolis, which offers an ever-changing tap selection as well as house-brewed non-alcoholic soda. Fulton commissioned its second brewery in 2014, a 51,000 square foot facility in Northeast Minneapolis. Fulton is best known for Sweet Child of Vine, a balanced and approachable India Pale Ale, Lonely Blonde, an easy-drinking Blonde Ale, 300, a Mosaic IPA, and our newest year-round; an extraordinarily uncomplicated Lager named Standard.
