We're bigger than beer


Posted Wednesday May 18, 2016

Fulton is a Minneapolis brewery founded in 2009. We own and operate a 20 bbl brewery and taproom in downtown Minneapolis next to Target Field, and a 50,000 square foot production brewery in Northeast Minneapolis. In 2015, Fulton produced approximately 22,000 barrels, sold mostly in the Twin Cities metro area. We’re a group of beer enthusiasts focused on brewing extraordinary beer and working to make our community a better place. Our Ful10 Fund provides loans and support to other small businesses and non-profits; our Fulton Racing teams encourage participation in active lifestyle sports; our nearby Fulton Hopyard is a showcase for our commitment to brewing with local and sustainable ingredients. Best of all, we get to live, work, and play in Minneapolis-St. Paul, consistently ranked as one of the top metro areas in the United States for quality of life, urban parks, education, bicycling, theater, dining, and more.
