We're bigger than beer


Posted Wednesday June 22, 2016

That's a tall claim, but we're prepared to rise to it. From Minneapolis to Watertown to Lutsen and back again, Fulton is having one of our busiest weekends ever. So many things going on, in fact, that it might be hard not to join us at one point. Here we go:

You are cordially invited to join us Friday at noon for a little game of hooky. Trust us, this will be worth it because we've got a Firkin of Ringer waiting for you at Grumpy's NE.

Can't skip out of work early? Well then, we've got another Firkin (of Insurrection) Friday opportunity for you. This time at Grumpy's Downtown at 4pm.

Eleven O.G., our taproom-only Session IPA, is back. If you're looking to make a day of it and you're swinging through the North Loop this weekend, grab one of these. 

Speaking of taprooms, this Saturday we've teamed up with our North Loop neighbors at Modist to host a MN United pre-game tailgate event. Details on getting yourself our collaborative scarf and a couple beers here.

For cyclists looking to get out of town for a couple days we've got just the thing for you. Join this group ride to Big Lake for some camp vibes. Brought to you from the good folks at All-City Cycles.

Those looking to get even further away from the cities might find themselves up at the Lutsen 99er for the weekend. We're proud to be the official beer partner for the fourth consecutive year. Spectators (and drinkers) welcome. 

This year for the 5th annual Pride Dabbler, we created the Liberace Sorachi Pale Ale. Brewed with 100% Frontenac malt, as well as Calypso, El Dorado, and of course Sorachi Ace hops. Liberace Sorachi clocks in at 5.1% ABV and 38 IBU. We'll be pouring this and other Fulton favorites in Loring Park this Friday. 

Guthrie is throwing a killer after party in celebration of their latest show opening, South Pacific. Grab your ticket and enjoy Fulton beer and DJ Espada on the 1's and 2's all night.

Who's going to Rib Fest? If you find yourself answering "yes" then you might want to get on over to B's On The River for their pre-Rib Fest party. This way you'll know the lay of the land in time for the main event next month.

Are we there yet? Yep, we're there. The Travail Lakeside Party is the final soirée of the weekend and will absolutely go out with a bang. Like the flier says: Food, Beer, Music. Maybe not in that order, but who's keeping track anyways?


Summer with Fulton
Posted Wednesday June 1, 2016

The weather has mostly arrived, schools are out and the living is at least, a little easier (the beer helps). Speaking of beer, our quintessential summer beer The Randonneur is on shelves and on draught now. Whether you're BBQing or fixing up the yard, The Randonneur is your all-day friend clocking in at a modest 4.1% ABV.

While we're on the topic of beer, it's worth mentioning that Fulton is the Brewery of The Month at the 331 Club in NE MPLS (one of our favorite neighborhood bars). Enjoy some exceptional deals on Fulton beer for the month of June.

While the weekends continue to fill up with festivals, parties, outings and the like it's nice to know that some of Minneapolis' finest moments are free and accessibile to all. This Saturday is one of those moments. Fulton is a proud partner in Northern Spark, the dusk-to-dawn, multidisciplinary arts festival. Stay up all night with us and tens of thousands of Minnesotans while enjoying projects that address global climate change including multi-story projections, games, virtual reality experiences, sculptures, installations and more.

Great water makes for great beer. Here in Minnesota we're extremely fortunate to have the head waters of one of Earth's greatest (err, mightiest) rivers. Which, is the number 1 ingredient in Fulton's beers. We've partnered up with Rahr Corporation, Bob Mitchell's Fly Shop and Friends of The Mississippi River to create a platform that aims to bring river conservation into focus and relevance for an even broader audience. That platform beings with GreatRiverGreatBeer.com
