Environmental stewardship is one of craft’s Top 5 credos. In our humble opinion, a craft brewer should make great quality beer (Craft Credo No. 1), serve their community first (No. 2), support the craft industry overall (No. 3), embrace philanthropy (No. 4) and fight for the environment and sustainability (No. 5).

Honoring more than one of those credos, Friends of the Mississippi River is teaming up with local businesses in the Minneapolis Metro area, to collaborate and release a limited-edition beer to support the Mississippi River. It’s called 72 Stretch. Made in collaboration with Fulton Beer, Rahr Corp. and Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop, this special brew honors the 72 miles of the Mississippi River flowing through the Twin Cities metro, which serves as the sole source of drinking water for nearly one in three metro residents.

As the festival is a salute to all things Minneapolis, it is fitting that one of the new additions shines a light on the ever-growing beer community. The Mess Hall at Boom Island, open Saturday during AquaJam, showcases four local breweries – FINNEGANS, Fulton Beer, Lakes & Legends Brewing Company and Sociable Cider Werks. Ethan Applen, CEO of Lakes & Legends; Tucker Gerrick, from Fulton; Angie Lee, marketing and events coordinator from FINNEGANS; and Jim Watkins, co-founder of Sociable, spoke about what it’s like to merge a new Minneapolis staple with an old one.

In just its first year as a festival business partner, the Minneapolis-based company will serve its beer at the annual River Rats water ski performances, host a drag race downtown and bring back a skateboarding event that was an Aquatennial favorite in the 1980s.

Sweet Child of Vine by Fulton Beer at Chef Camp
This week we got up to Camp Miller to re-explore and start working on a dry run for this September’s Chef Camp retreat. (Five tickets remain; act quickly if you’re intrigued.) Our beer sponsor, Fulton, came with us, and we feasted on lamb and pesto sandwiches on Spoon and Stable bread, fire-roasted asparagus, and — of course — Fulton Beer. Sweet Child of Vine is one of the beers...

When Artcrank, a humble poster party for bike people, launched in Minneapolis in 2007, few would have imagined it would become a global movement. The fun returns to its hometown for its 10th year on Saturday to show off the varied and vibrant interpretations of cycling from 50 local artists...

“In the brewing industry there are a lot of companies that are involved in donations and that’s great,” begins Fulton Brewing co-founder Ryan Petz, seated in their North Loop taproom behind a pint of Tanager Brett IPA. “But we wanted to add our own element that ties into our own story.”...

Not only that, it gives a glimpse of the brewery’s personality. While some breweries opt for straightforward, others like to have a little fun when it comes to beer names. Here are our favorites:
