Elysian Brewing’s Fuzzduster

Made by combining two of the company’s most popular beers – Space Dust IPA and Superfuzz Pale Ale – Fuzzduster is the love child of the two, boasting bright and bitter notes that complement one another nicely and bring out each other’s best qualities. 

Fuzzduster can be whipped up in a matter of seconds and is the perfect concoction to create with your significant other (or by yourself, more power to you!) before sitting down for Valentine’s Day festivities at home. All you have to do is combine half a glass of Space Dust and half a glass of Superfuzz with one another, sip and enjoy!

Elysian is also hosting a sweepstake throughout the month of February, where one lucky winner will win a $2,000 Airbnb gift card – to enter, just text “FUZZDUSTER” to 78896 between 2/1 and 2/28.

Full Contact, which is rolling out nationwide in 6-pack cans and on draft, joins Contact Haze as a member of Elysian’s Contact family. Also joining the Contact family later this year is Altered Contact (6.8% ABV), a Tart IPA which offers a refreshing alternative to the usually generous hop-forward flavors of the style.
