San Francisco, Calif. Sufferfest Beer Company, the athlete-focused, purpose-brewed craft beer company based in San Francisco, is proud to launch the FKT Pale Ale, a first-of-its-kind brew inspired by those who go the extra mile.

“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 be the perfect finish line beer, no matter what your finish line is today. ”

Sufferfest’s FKT Pale Ale was crafted to give you the flavor and richness you deserve with the added ingredients of salt and black currant. The beer’s bright and tangy flavor is complemented by the citrus notes imparted by a hops bouquet of citra, azacca and magnum. “At its foundation taste was paramount; from there, we focused on introducing select ingredients that were inspired by what we wanted to see in a finish line beer,” explained Landesberg.

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