You can't claim the "North" and not embrace the cold. At Fulton, we happily look forward to the seasonal shift towards chiller weather and all the new that follows it. With plenty to do in the week ahead, we're here to share a few reasons to get up and out with Fulton.
Minneapolis' biggest ode to the season is back again. And by which, we're talking about Holidazzle. With something for all ages and many interests, the Thursday-Sunday festival brings together the very best of the city over the holidays. Back again for the 4th year running, Fulton's heated beer garden is bigger and better than ever. Also back, is our Holidazzle Proper Porter with the addition of cold press coffee from our buddies Big Watt Coffee.
A list of highlights and scheduled events and happenings for all things Holidazzle lives here. See you in Loring Park!
Have you been to the Fulton taproom lately? If not, then here are a few reasons to consider. One: Beer! At last count, we've got 25 different beers on the menu at our humble little North Loop taproom. That's a lot of variety, more than ever before, in fact. Two: Merch! We've added tons of seasonal goodies to our assortment just in time for some holiday gifting. Three: Happenings! From meat raffles, free music nights, the return of our weekly vinyl nights and more-we've got it going on. And while we're talking about taproom events...
We might be 6 months away, but trust us, there are 1,600+ #FultonGranFondo riders eagerly waiting for the first weekend of May to come. While we can't speed up time, we can do our part to get all you cyclists a little closer to the action. This coming Wednesday in the Fulton Taproom we're hosting on Early Bird Registration night for the 2019 Fulton Gran Fondo. While you're there, get signed up for another Fulton-sponsored bike event in the Lutsen 99er. Sign up for them both and get 2 free beers (for consumption that night, in the taproom).
The holidays are great for surprises and we've got one for you right here. From one-off to once-a-year to year-round, our 300 Mosaic IPA has become one of our most acclaimed beers. Now, we’re happy to share two new variants of our beloved 300: one a dry, effervescent “Brut”; and one fermented on pureed mango. This special 300 Mixed Pack comes out soon, so keep your eyes on these emails and our Instagram for updates.
We've talked the talk, but now we're walking the walk. We've taken a step into a whole new territory for Fulton with the release of our very first Mixed 12 pack. What's inside you ask? We've taken our beloved 300 Mosaic IPA and double-dry-hopped it with Citra to bring even more hop aroma to you. If you liked 300 before, you're in for a real treat. Speaking of hops, we've taken our Session IPA Hopstar and bottled it for the first time. What was once a Holidazzle exclusive has now been bottled, too. Yep, we're talking Proper Porter. And last but not least, Minnesota's favorite Blonde Ale (Lonely Blonde, duh) sneaks into the mix for those who are looking for something familiar to round out the pack. Look for this 12er where you regularly buy Fulton beginning now.
The holidays are an exciting time of the year for us in the taproom. With new beers, new merch, and lots of old and new friends alike, the space is always bustling. Between our weekly comedy nights (Wednesdays) and our Sunday Music Series, we've got a bunch of free fun to experience here in the North Loop. Also worth mentioning, if you're looking for a place to host your holiday party, look no further. Just give our Taproom Events Manager a shout here.
Hollidazzle is near! Minneapolis' premier holiday celebration is coming back and with it, Fulton as the official beer for our 4th straight year. Loring Park comes alive for 5 straight weeks of winter-themed fun (both indoors and out) beginning next Friday, November 23rd. We took our exclusive Holiazzle Proper Porter and amped it up a bit with the addition of Cold Press from our friends at Big Watt Coffee for an incredibly smooth, deceptively decadent version of our American Porter. You can get Fulton inside our humungous tented (heated) beer garden and outside amongst a bevy of local businesses in the Holidazzle market. Admission is always free and the event is all ages to attend. See you next weekend in the park!
