Meet Us In Loring Park for HOLIDAZZLE
Posted Thursday November 28, 2019

IT'S TIME TO GET FESTIVE 

Minneapolis Holidazzle

Minneapolis' most quintessential winter event is back again and bigger than ever. Yes, we're talking about Holidazzle. If you haven't been in the past 5 years, then you're forgiven for being out of the loop on all the fun happening Thursday-Sunday down in Loring Park this time of year. Let us catch you up on some of the festivities. 

Minneapolis Holidazzle

Beginning Friday 11/29 a trip to Holidazzle could include anything from interactive art to ice skating and much, much more. There's movies in the park, games, shopping, great local food, and festive firework shows to name just some of the highlights. But to us, the best part is the heated Fulton Beer Garden (we're biased, admittedly). Whether you're joining us for a trivia night or just stopping through each time you're thirsty and in the area, we're back again with a menu chocked-full of Fulton favorites and hard seltzers. And to satiate those curious craft drinkers out there, we've brewed two exclusive beers just for Holidazzle. For those feeling extra festive the Small Talk Stout, a Chocolate Oatmeal Milk Stout, was brewed with you in mind. Small Talk is an exceptionally smooth, chocolatey, malty, milk stout fit for winter chills. The second exclusive Holidazzle brew is as easy-drinking as they come. Introducing our Goodwill Gold Lager; It’s light, crisp, and is best paired with another one. Both are exciting new beers and both are around for a limited time. Get yours before they're gone.

2019 GROWLER MAGAZINE KIND OF A BIG DEAL AWARDS

Fulton Lonely Blonde KOABD Gold Winner

Holy. Moly.

We'll skip the speeches and cut straight to the punch: Thank you. Big time. We've always been proud of our top dog, but winning the 3rd consequtive Growler Magazine Kind Of A Big Deal award for Lonely Blonde (in our 10th year, nonetheless) means a little more than it has in the past. Our journey has been your journey, MN. And, looking back on the last few years in particular we are so grateful for your support in helping us make it this far. There's a reason Lonely Blonde is one of the biggest craft beers in Minnesota. That reason is you. So thank you, from all of us here at Fulton.

Growler Magazine KOABD gold winner: Blood Orange Hard Seltzer

The year of the Hard Seltzer isn't over just yet! Can you believe our four faithful Hard Seltzer flavors have only been around since May? We crafted our mixed 12 pack with a collection of flavors that made pleasing a group of party people easier than ever, but we never expected to win an award in the same year. Our Blood Orange flavor won gold this past weekend and we're still riding high on this achievement. Get yours in our Mixed 12packs out now wherever Fulton is sold. And, expect good things in the year ahead for Fulton Hard Seltzer...we've got more fun for you still.

Holidays Fast Approaching
Posted Thursday November 14, 2019

Holidays in the park are near.

Holidazzle

It's that time of year folks were we bundle up, grab a friend or the fam and head to Loring Park for Minneapolis' most festive holiday event. You guessed it- Holidazzle. We're taking over the heated beer garden for the 5th consecutive year to bring you games, guest appearances and not one but two custom Holidazzle beers. For those who are looking for something extremely easy-drinking and familiar we have created Goodwill Gold- a super light, crispy, un-fussy Golden Lager that will surely please even the non-craft drinker in your group. And for anyone looking to ratchet-up the good times with something fit for the season we're offering Small Talk Stout- our Chocolate Oatmeal Milk Stout. It's full bodied, chocolately, and incredibly smooth. Find both special beers, Fulton favorites like Lonely Blonde and Sweet Child of Vine and 2 of our new(er) Hard Seltzers. The festival kicks off Friday November 29th at 5pm...see you there!

Holidazzle
Drinking Buddies: Fulton and Jameson Whiskey

Jameson Barrel Aged Brown Ale

Holy. Moly.

Our annual collaborative beer release with Jameson comes as a brand new beer to our lineup this year by way of our very first Brown Ale. Jameson Barrel-Aged Brown is the beautiful benefactor of a careful and complex marriage of malts, totaling a half dozen different varieties. Despite this hefty malt presence, it's uniquely balanced and goes down remarkably (too) easy. The beer rested over three months in Jameson Whiskey Barrels-adding to it's depth and imparting trace hints of vanilla and oak flavors. It is medium bodied and will surprise you with it's smooth texture, clean finish, and overall drinkability. This is easy, late Autumn drinking defined. You can get your hands on a pint beginning next week at select Fulton accounts across the metro.

Fulton Brew Jitsu - This Weekend

Fulton Brew Jitsu

If you're into mixed martial arts and craft beer, then we've got a dream event for you this Saturday 11/16 right here at our NE MPLS production brewery. We've brought back Fulton Brew Jitsu and it's going to be bigger and better than before. But if you don't grab your ticket now, you'll miss out on all the fun (and trust us, there's plenty of fun planned).

True Autumn Vibes
Posted Thursday October 17, 2019

Fulton at Autumn Brew Review

Autumn Brew Review

The leaves are changing, the temps are lower and there's a certain crispiness to the air most days. Fall descends on Minneapolis in a powerful way and at once leaves us longing for sunnier days while embracing "sweater weather". One thing that doesn't change with the season though is Minnesota's thirst for the fine craft beer. If you're like us, you probably enjoy the beers AND the seasonal shift all at once at events like this Saturday's Autumn Brew Review. We're happy to report we'll be in attendance pouring some exclusive and hard(er)-to-get beers from our cellar (Sweet Child Old Fashioned anyone?) alongside all our Hard Seltzers. The fest starts at 5 and is on Boom Island. SEE. YOU. THERE.

BREW JITSU DRAWS NEAR

Fulton Brew Jitsu event

World class Jiu-Jitsu returns to Minnesota next month at the 2nd Fulton Brew Jitsu event. One part superfights and one part seminar, Fulton Brewjitsu brings top BJJ athletes from across the world to Minneapolis for one special day of instruction, community, and entertainment. Oh, and of course, beer.

The 2019 Fulton Brew Jitsu is brought to you with the support of Fuji Mats and is in collaboration with We Defy and Brewjitsu ATX. Whether you're just wanting to watch, or you're ready to Gi-up for the seminar portion of the event, you can take your pick here.

FULTON GOES TO GABF

Jameson Barrel Aged Beer Garden at GABF 2019

OH GABF! The Great American Beer Festival is just days away and we're giddy about heading to Denver to attend. It's what some call the pinnacle beer festival here in the U.S. and we'd agree with that in a heartbeat. And in the past 2 years we'd like to think things have got even better with the addition of the Jameson Caskmates Barrel-Aged Beer Garden. For the 2nd year in a row we're meeting up with our other Drinking Buddies in Jameson's Caskmates program for a weekend full of oak-aged beer goodness. Headed to Denver yourself? Come say hi and sample one of our 3 special barrel-aged beers.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST: FULTON 10YR PARTY

Fulton 10 Year Anniversary Party

It's hard to believe, (and it's even weirder to type) but this month marks our 10 year anniversary of the first Fulton beer poured in the public. It's a milestone that really wasn't easy to envision at times, especially as we've kept our noses to the proverbial grind stone this past decade trying to keep up with a very, very thirsty MN (and beyond). But we're here, we're proud, and we're ready to party with you. This Saturday at Minneapolis' first taprom (ahem, ours!) we're cranking up the tunes, tapping some exclusives and dishing out good vibes with everyone who attends. Party starts at 2pm and is free.

SEE

YOU

THERE!


 

Ten Years Of Beers
Posted Monday September 23, 2019

A decade.

It's a long, long time no matter how you dice it up. Millions of beers, thousands of events, and countless good times have all added up to 10 long years with you by our side. We're celebrating this milestone in proper Fulton style with a big ol' blowout of a Taproom party. The fun will be flowing all day, but the party starts at 2pm and is free to attend. We've enlisted some musical help from a selection of our favorite MN bands. And what's a birthday party without special beers!?!? We've got a few liquid surprises for those who get there early.

Hope to see you there, friends.

Fulton Brewing 10 year anniversary

FULTON BREWJITSU

Supporting our communities through charitable partnerships has always been a priority at Fulton. That goes for many of our events, like Fulton Brewjitsu. At the first Fulton Brewjitsu in 2016, we chose to team up with Mission 22 and We Defy Foundation to raise awareness about veteran suicide and how the Jiu Jitsu community can provide support to disabled veterans in need. In 2019, we are building on that! This year, Fulton will be donating $1 from the sale of each beer at the event to We Defy Foundation. We hope whether you're active in the sport or just down for to support (and enjoy a few beers) you'll join us at our NE Production Brewery for the return of Fulton Brewjitsu.

Fulton Brew Jitsu

Let there be pizza

Red Wagon Pizza Co. is commemorating 5 years of serving pizza on Penn and are celebrating with a barn burner of a parking lot party. Meet us in South MPLS for some good times, classy beverages, hot pizza and entertainment for the whole family.
There's tons of action to get in on when you're there, we promise.

This is a free event and there will be pepperoni, duh.

The Best 12 Days of The Year
Posted Thursday August 15, 2019

Summer ends when we say so! (And we're not saying so, yet) 

Fulton Beer at the State Fair

With over a dozen spots to quench your State Fair thirst with a Fulton this year you might find yourself overwhelmed with options and opportunities. In this case, we think this is a good thing. Save the above map on your phone for an easy-finding/easy-drinking reference when you find yourself at The Great Minnesota Get Together

State Fair Beers by Fulton Brewing

And while you're there...

As much as we anticipate all the new and exciting State Fair-exclusive foods to come out each year, we know they're all better with a good beer to wash them down with. That's where we come in, naturally. And what's more, this year we've got 4 custom beers at some of our favorite State Fair stops. Read below for the break down on them all.

MANGO STAR at LuLu's Public House (Session IPA is twice dry-hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Amarillo hops and fruited with mango purée.)

ORANGE PUSH-UP POP PALE ALE at Cafe Caribe (This pale ale features bright citrus and tropical fruit notes that are matched with a light malt body, finished with orange cream and rimmed with zesty orange sugar.)

PRICKLY PEAR IPA at Frontier Bar (IPA is fruited with prickly pear purée.)

STRAWBERRY BLONDE at Hildebrand Concessions within Grandstand (Fruity American blonde ale with a delicate fragrance of German noble hops, a touch of white wheat and a strawberry purée to create a crisp and smooth sipper.)

Meanwhile over in the taproom...

Fulton Taproom School Supply drive

Do good, feel good, and drink well. You can accomplish all three at once whilst visiting the Fulton Taproom. Get yourself a sweet discount by bringing in some school supplies in support of the Boys & Girls Club of the Twin Cities. Make this perfect trifecta happen this weekend though-the promotion is ending soon!

Sun Country Airlines Beachy Keen Party

Friday August 23rd we're hosting our friends from Sun Country Airlines for a special beach-themed (they just opened a route to the Bahamas!) party with their CEO Jude Bricker. Stop on by the Sun Country (Hard) Seltzer bar and enter to win ticket vouchers to one of their new routes!
