Fulton in the News

June 30, 2017

"One of my favorites, without a doubt, is Fulton," says Kirk Williams, concierge at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. Beer lovers and baseball fans flock to the laid-back North Loop taproom. Its proximity to Target Field makes it a popular pre- and post-Minnesota Twins baseball game stop. Founded by homebrewers operating from a south Minneapolis garage in 2006...

#20- 300 MOSAIC IPA

Ah, Mosaic. Has there ever been a hop more appropriately named? The patchwork of flavors and fragrances that can be gleaned from the sought-after variety seems to be ever-expanding, and beers made primarily with it—like this one here—are always a little bit different. In 300, Mosaic imbues the aroma with just-mown grass, juicy nectarine and a hint of blueberry skin, then tessellates the tongue with ground-up weed and tangerine zest; a burst of sweet apricot midpalate cedes to bright, green lime and grass all the way through the finish. It’s easy to see why Fulton decided to make this beer year round rather than let it remain a lost-to-history one-off brewed to celebrate the 300th batch.

Minneapolis-based Fulton Beer is debuting a new "Continental Pilsner. For the full details, see the statement below:

Minneapolis, MN - "This week we are releasing an all-new Continental Pilsner, simply titled “PILS.” PILS will be available year-round on draft and in six packs of 12 oz bottles. Why a Pilsner? Simply put, most of us at the brewery love this style of beer. It’s usually the first beer we seek out when we visit a new town or another brewery. Whenever the ageless “desert island beer” conversation...

As a Northeast (or, in Fulton’s terminology, Northeast Minneapolis) IPA, Hopstar is cloudy and has all those wonderful milkshake juices that’ve made the style the hottest beer trend of 2017. But the double dry hopping of citra, mosaic, and amarillo make Hopstar drier and grassier than its peers...

...Therefore it’s interesting and noteworthy when local craft brewers head in the other direction with their product — putting it out in cans, simplifying the flavor profiles, aiming for sessionability and accessibility without losing the “craft” balance and quality that they’ve become known for. Many local brewers with sophisticated barrel-aging programs have begun a simultaneous surge into the everyday thirst-quencher market, and Fulton has been right in the mix with the launch last year of its Standard Lager brand.

Now Fulton is doubling down, with the addition of a no-frills Pilsner to its roster of perennial beers...

Fulton is shaking up its beer lineup.

The Minneapolis brewery announced this week it’s releasing its first pilsner called Pils – and it’ll be available year-round.

Fulton finally decided to make a pilsner because it’s one of its favorite styles. The beer is made with Minnesota-malted Rahr Pilsner and German Perle and Saaz hops...

Insurrection by Fulton is being evaluated as a Double IPA (Category 22A) from the 2015 BJCP guidelines. Having just judged this category in the Chicago region of the 2017 AHA 1stround Nationals the previous weekend, I felt that my palate would be prepared for the hoppy onslaught of this beer. This one did not disappoint, and truly pushes the envelope in respect to explosive dank hop character...

Imperial IPAs aren’t about subtlety, which is part of what makes Fulton’s Insurrection so intriguing. The brewery is typically known for balanced beers instead of over the top styles. But, every brewery makes many beers and they can’t all be the same. What would be the fun in that? While their Sweet Child O’ Vine is a well-blended malt-hop Midwest IPA, their 300 IPA is a West Coast Mosaic showoff. Insurrection takes that Mosaic love to the next level, giving it the Imperial treatment...

What’s black and white and red (well, read) all over?

That longtime riddle about newspapers, which brought laughter to schoolchildren for a century, has an updated version. This time the “news” comes in a can of beer — and not simply any kind, but one brewed especially for the 150th anniversary of the first issue of the Star Tribune, in collaboration with Fulton Brewing Co. in Minneapolis...

Would you pay $10 for a bottle of beer? How about $20? Brewers are thinking that certain drinkers will. The recent advent of ambitious, complex flavors is placing some beer-makers in the same class as wineries. James Norton, founding editor of the Heavy Table, says that craft beer companies are trying to expand into...
