Thinking of riding the Fulton Gran Fondo, but not registered yet? Good news, the price is still just $40...but only through Thursday. Your two $20's gets you into the ride, and a swag bag including a comfy commemorative shirt, free first beer at the block party, pint glass, and even more goodies to be revealed later. Over 900 riders have already registered, and the event is shaping up to be as much fun -- or even more so -- than last year. So, if you or your friends haven't signed up yet, be sure to do so now before the price goes up to $50 when the clock strikes Friday.
Not into riding a bike 100 miles...or at all? Not to worry. The block party is free, open to all, and going to be a blast. We've got a great band lineup, with performances by Solid Gold, BBGUN and What Tyrants. Partygoers won't go hungry, either, as Cafe Racer, Get Sauced, Nate Dogs, and MidNord Empanada Truck will all be set up to serve you. And of course, there will be no fewer than four Fulton taps pouring at all times, including the return of The Randonneur, our summer seasonal.
See you on the 9th!
This Wednesday consider your day booked. Join us from 3-9 as we knock out not one but two extra special events. First up we celebrate Earth Day with a cash drive to fund the planting of trees in the North Loop, live music from Mississippi Hot Club and eats from Gastrotruck.
Then at 6pm, prepare yourself for a special night with guest bartenders Prof and Fundo! That’s right, in celebration of our upcoming presence at this year's Soundset Festival, we’re handing off the tap reigns to a couple of Rhymesayers' party animals. These Minnesota mainstays are sure to provide a taproom experience hard to forget, or perhaps in this case, hard to remember!
Come share a cold one with some of the biggest characters to ever come from our fair city. While you're at it, enjoy the tunes provided by DJ Last Word of Get Cryphy as he holds down the 1’s and 2’s from 6-9pm. It’s going to be a good one.
In early May, Fulton will be releasing Lonely Blonde and Sweet Child of Vine in 4 packs of 16 oz cans. This is our first ever release of cans, and just like our bottled beers, 100% of the brewing and packaging will be done at our Northeast Minneapolis brewery.
We’ve wanted to put our beer in cans for a long time, and we’ve been getting asked to do so by others for just about as long. Why cans? There are pros to both package types, but there are definitely occasions and venues where bottles are simply not an option, but cans are. Biking, camping, music festivals, and golf courses are all places that glass can’t always go, but now your Fulton always can.
Our bottled beers are all here to stay, of course, and most of our seasonal and limited release beers will remain bottle-only for the foreseeable future. We’ll have more options available in cans further down the road, but for now, be sure to make some room in your cooler for a couple more four packs.
