We're headed up north to Duluth for another year of All Pints North. A weekend-long party with our fellow breweries and friends all centered around the water, who can complain? Along with it being one of the most scenic festivals we get to participate in, it's also about bringing some special stuff to share, so this year we've decided to put together a pretty fantastic list of beers, because what's a party up north without great craft beer? Here's what we're pouring: Fika Imperial Milk Stout, Double Dry Hopped 300, White Peach Hopstar and Tangerine Blonde.
Speaking of up north, we have about a month left till our favorite holiday weekend of the year ( Labor Day/ Chef Camp). What better way to wrap up all of summers shenanigans than with a full weekend of drinks and dining in the woods. Camp Miller is one of the country's oldest summer camps that sits just 90 minutes outside the cities. The experience consists of old cozy cabins, classic camp activities, and an added bonus of Minnesota's most talented chefs make Chef Camp a truly unique experience that we look forward to being apart of every year. Grab your tickets and meet us in the woods.
If you can't wait to get started on some of your skills, our friends over at Lowry Hill Meats host a monthly class leading up to Chef Camp. Every month you'll learn new techniques to use in the kitchen taught by some of Minnesota's biggest talent. This week Chef Yia Vang of Union Kitchen will teach some basic knife skills as well as give you a hands-on demonstration of the best ways to break down a whole chicken. Register for the class and you'll get a $60 discount on your ticket to Chef Camp.
8 corners, two full city blocks, and for the fixed gear fields, no brakes, no shifting, and no coasting. What’s this all about? It’s our brand new race event we’re calling the Downtown Thunderdome. We’ve got 6 heats (2 are MN state fixed gear championships!), a gazillion beers and all the fun. Want to race with us tonight? You can register with us and our friends at the Minnesota Cycling Federation in person at the Fulton Taproom beginning at 4:30. For those who aren’t rolling with us, we’ve got a temporarily expanded beer garden that takes you within inches of the action. Prizes provided by All-City Cycles, Trash Bags, and Fulton.
For those headed downtown this weekend for the return of the X Games to Minneapolis, we’ve got something else for you that’s going to blow minds. We’ve partnered up with Familia Skateshop and Aquatennial to bring back our own skateboard contest- Aquajam. Better yet, this year the boys at Familia have truly topped themselves with an obstacle as iconic as they come here in MN. What is it? You’ll have to drop by to find out. The best trick contest is from 6-8pm this year. Free to enter, open to all. And, we’ve got a new site for all the action in 2018. We’ve moved to the lot just East of The Guthrie. We’re kicking things off right as the SoFi Women’s Street contest wraps up over at US Bank Stadium. Roll on over.
It’s summer. Duh. We bring up this extremely declarative and blatantly obvious fact to remind you to get out there and make the most of summer’s balance. We’re in the back third of July now and soon we’ll all be plotting our State Fair-on-a-stick adventures. So while you plot your next getaway to the cabin, the woods, the fishing hole or wherever your seasonal getaway is we’d like to remind you to pack a little more extraordinary into your day. How? It’s easy. Grab a brand new 12-er of our official all-occasion beer, Standard Lager now in 12oz cans. You’ll be glad you did.
Sometimes you just want to fit a little more (beer) into your day. That simple idea was one of the driving catalysts for packing up our most recognizable beers (Sweet Child of Vine, Lonely Blonde, and Standard Lager) into brand new 12 packs of 12oz cans. Not so simply, we set out to do such with an entirely new canning system. From de-pal to filling, packing and re-pal...we’ve expanded our capacity to bring you the styles in the packaging style you’ve been asking us forever since we put our beer in aluminum in the first place. For those in the MSP metro, Mankato, and Rochester, you can get your hands on all 3 styles right now. For all other markets/areas-keep your eyes peeled. We’re working hard with our distribution partners to get you stocked up properly.
When we released our Continental Pilsner aptly named “PILS” this time last year, we knew we had a distinct, versatile, instant classic on our hands. It was the beer in our year-long lineup that we had long been missing. What we were slower to realize how much you all wanted to see it in cans. Well, we’re here today to tell you we’re permanently fixing that grievous mistake. Beginning next week we’ll be slowly but steadily introducing PILS tallboy cans into the market (starting here at home of course). If you don’t find it at where you normally find Fulton, ask for it.
This coming Sunday we’re venturing into the unknown a bit byways of brunch. Yes, you read that right, BRUNCH. We’ve collaborated with Fika Coffee & Sawtooth Mountain Maple Syrup to bring you a brunch-time moment filled with breakfast-y goodness. And of course, it includes beer. We’re debuting our “Fika Imperial Milk Stout”, made with (you guessed it) coffee and maple syrup by Fika and Sawtooth Mountain, respectively. It’s an incredibly complex, yet deceptively smooth stout that yields flavors of chocolate, maple syrup and hints of chocolate. You can get yours first at the Taproom this Sunday at 11. The first 100 to order a Fika get a complimentary glass coffee (beer) mug on us.
