Fulton in the News

December 14, 2017

An OG among the garage taproom lot, Fulton might be one of Minnesota’s best-kept secrets. Its Sweet Child of Vine is a hoppy-sweet staple, and the Lonely Blonde is a reliable lunch-pail kind of brew. Doing simple things exceptionally well has been Fulton's calling card, but there’s plenty of creativity to be found as well...

Fulton’s Culture Project of mixed culture fermentation beers has developed a cult following, and the brewery just released its third edition of the series: a barrel-fermented Brett IPA called Tanager...

The burger: This sort-of burger places a Hall of Fame-level Minneapolis dish at its center: the meatloaf from the late and highly lamented Modern Cafe. Chef Scott Pampuch enriches the beef (big surprise, it’s from Peterson) with the menu’s excellent porchetta, which is ground and blended into the ground beef in a 1-to-4 ratio. Pampuch treats the notably rich beef-pork mix like any burger, portioning it into hefty 6-ounce balls and carefully formed into a patty (one that’s big enough to stretch to the bread’s edges, a key trait) just before it hits the charbroiler. Shout-outs to the brewery abound...

Fulton is one of many businesses expecting a boom in the North Loop. With the help of Cenex their patio will be transformed into a warming house with bonfires and blankets.

And, the brand will be behind a giant ice bar that will go up mid-December at Bloomington’s South Loop space...

Raise your glass

Fulton Brewing is back for its third year in Loring Park, with both an outdoor, cans-only booth and a handy, let’s-warm-up heated tent, with taps, plenty of seats and a pile of games...

We’ve been hearing nothing but superlatives for the new Fulton Beer-plus-Jameson Whiskey barrel collab Whiskey, War & Peace—people in the know have said things like “best beer of the year so far”—and we can’t wait to try out the Imperial Coffee Stout at the barrel tapping tonight at the Fulton tap room...

Honestly, I haven’t thought about Minnesota all that often in my life.

Now, I can add Fulton Brewing Co. to that list of reasons to head to Minnesota someday soonish, because what they’re putting into cans is enticing enough to make me want to go right to the source.

The burger: Fulton Brewing, home of one of the city’s first taprooms, has recently added a kitchen. A somewhat unconventional one, as it’s housed in a retrofitted 1968 Airstream trailer that pretty much defines “cool.” It’s parked outside the North Loop brewery, and it's under the direction of Executive Chef Scott Pampuch, the local foods poobah and force behind the original incarnation of Corner Table.

Fulton Brewing Co. Specter – Joseph Alton, Editor-in-Chief

Love them or hate them, hazy IPAs are having quite the heyday. Characterized by its opaque appearance and softer mouthfeel, the style was popularized by breweries in the Northeast part of the country but has started to gain traction locally. Though initially reluctant to embrace the trend, Fulton’s head brewer Mikey Salo has produced an archetypal example of NEIPA. Specter is brewed with two-row barley, oats, and wheat, and is thrice dry-hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Nelson Sauvin hops. This deliciously flawed beer presents aromas of citrus and grapefruit, a creamy mouthfeel, slight hop bitterness, and a robust, juicy tropical finish.

Fulton 300

Drinking more like a pilsner than an IPA, this is a fruity, Mosaic-hop bomb (74 IBU!) with a shocking orange-and-stone-fruit flavor. Originally brewed to celebrate Fulton’s 300th batch of beer, it’s the brewery’s best.
