We're bigger than beer


A little bit of good
Posted Tuesday June 16, 2020

Last Tuesday, we opened the doors to our taproom after a 12 week shutdown. It was a bittersweet moment for us. For months, we had eagerly awaited the day when COVID restrictions would be eased and we could welcome you into our newly renovated taproom and patio. But in consideration of the pain and loss in our community following the murder of George Floyd, we pushed our re-opening back by a week, and pledged to donate 100% of sales from our first week to West Broadway Business and Area Coalition. We're proud to report that you helped us raise over $11,500. To everyone who came out last week while we worked out the kinks of reopening in this new COVID world, thank you. We look forward to serving you all in the future. Until then, be safe and be kind to one another.

Thank you for supporting the Fulton Taproom

Home office remodel anyone?

Who says all those zoom calls have to happen indoors? Not us! Lately our home office is looking a lot like your standard front yard hangout. If you see us outside, computer on our laps and headphones in, give us a wave (but don't honk please, we're "in a meeting").


Immediate Action

“The world is before you, and you need not take it or leave it as it was when you came in.”

― James Baldwin


The four founders of Fulton -- Jim, Brian, Peter, Ryan -- are all white men, as are the majority of our employees. Though we cannot speak directly to what it is like to live as a person of color in America, we want our neighbors, friends, and coworkers who are people of color to know that we hear your voice, are listening to your words, and are supporting your actions. 


Our first core value at Fulton is “we are in it for each other.” We also believe that we have an obligation as a business to act as a citizen of our community. Taken together, these beliefs compel us to action. We will not remain complicit in silence. Fulton is committing to use the voice, the skills, and the means that we have to support the building blocks of racial justice in our local community, specifically in North Minneapolis. 

We are taking immediate action: 

  • Next Tuesday, our taproom will open for business for the first time in 12 weeks. We will be donating every dollar of sales for the taproom’s first week of business to the West Broadway Business and Area Coalition. Just a bridge away from both of our breweries, these businesses are community cornerstones, just as Fulton strives to be. For those who would like to contribute but can’t make it into our taproom, we encourage you to make a direct donation of your own. 
  • Our company’s voice will convey a message of hope, opportunity, and urgency in the fight for racial justice. One way we will communicate this will be on a mural designed and painted by a BIPOC artist on our taproom’s north exterior wall. 
  • We will engage our city leaders to demand that they take a stand against police brutality and the institutional culture that enables it.
  • In the coming year, our taproom will host a series of public conversations centered around issues of race in our local community. 
  • In the coming months and years, Fulton will continue to build partnerships with businesses and non-profits focused on Minneapolis’ North Side. 


These are only steps in a long journey with an uncertain outcome. As supporters and fans of Fulton, we invite you to join our effort.
