Who reading this right now thought 2020 was going to go down the way it has back when we were all making new years resolutions last December? (not us!) 2020 was so chocked-full of zingers out of left field that we sometimes lost our ability to see above the figurative (and literal) fires and smoke to see what we had gained amidst all the loss. That thing we had been stock-piling all year? One word-
Like you, we filled in all the blanks this year with time spent well. Like, truly well. As in doing the things most meaningful, rewarding, and lasting. We hunkered down, we tightened our figurative belts, we zoomed in lieu of gathering around our dinner tables, stadiums, and favorite venues. We navigated a new world of "unknowing" and we got sharper, stronger, and more appreciative along the way. And it's that last bit that we want to remind you of today, on this last day of this (insert your own adjective here) year:
We are so thankful for you.
We can't do what we do without you. Whether you're a restaurant or bar beer buyer, one of our faithful distributors, a liquor store cashier, or some guy or gal picking up a quick 12pk of Fulton on their way to a distanced backyard hang. We're here today, after this zany year because all of you decided to keep Fulton in your lives. And for that, we are forever grateful.
We hope you bring in the new year tonight with gusto, whatever that looks like to you. Be good to each other out there.
See you next year,
It's like UHF + Waynes World + Mystery Science Theater...oh, and with beer. First episode of one of our features we're calling "Beers I Bought" airs tomorrow. Let's get weird!
What do you get when you age an iconic Minnesota IPA in the oak barrels from the world’s largest Irish whiskey maker with ingredients inspired by a legendary cocktail? Well, you’re about to find out soon! For the first time ever we're about to bottle one of our Jameson barrel-aged beers. And while we're ready for an Old Fashioned-inspired beer RIGHT NOW, the oak barrels aren't done sharing their flavors quite yet. Look for the release of "Sweet Child Old Fashioned" in February. Spring, as it turns out, is already looking up.
For those of you who've ordered take out food the past couple weeks or have (very) recently come to visit us outdoors on our patio; thank you. We all know it's been rough this year and it should go without saying (though we're saying it now, again) that your support has meant the world to us. We are here because of you, truly.
For those visiting us soon, our holiday hours are as follows:
Swap the greenery for some snow (hopefully soon!?!?) and some of those picnic tables for a fire pit and what do you have? You have our humble attempt at getting some Winter #PatioVibes. With the new loosening of Covid-19 restrictions to include limited, outdoor seating we're jumping at the opportunity to see people in 3D. The winterized patio will open tomorrow at 4pm. You can book your spot here in advance (walk-ins accepted as space is available).
We can't wait to see you!
Hungry but can't sit down and stay a while with us this weekend? All good (you've got options!). Our Taproom Kitchen is (finally!) open for business. We've got sammies, tacos, snacks, drinks (Non-Alcoholic) and all sorts of goodies for any Fulton Beer lover on your list. You can order via clicking right here.
In the spirit of giving we are throwing in a free Fulton baseball cap for every order over $20 all weekend long. AND you can still get a free can of Hop Water with every entrée ordered. Dang.
Well, that took a while (understatement of the year, ha). But good things are worth the wait and we're here to (finally!) share that the Fulton Taproom Kitchen is open for business (at 4pm). We've got tacos, sammies, snacks and more. And of course there's some crisp, clean Hop Water to wash it all down with. And speaking of which, we're giving away one free can of Hop Water per entree item ordered. Yeah, you read that right.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting Fulton and all independent businesses during these trying times. It's your support that keeps us doing what we do each day and keeps the lights on.
Here's to you!
