Fulton in the News

July 30, 2020

...With a dad-ready tagline of “Beer that tastes like beer,” Fulton’s Chugger is reminiscent of a can of Mich Golden that spent four years at a liberal arts school in the big city. It still features all of the same straight-to-the-middle inoffensive charms of Minnesota’s favorite boat beer, without any of the cloying sweetness or turgid souring as the beer warms next to your Weber...

Fulton was founded in 2009 in a South Minneapolis garage filled with dreams of building a real brewery in Minneapolis.  Dreams came true quicker than expected for the owners of Fulton who accidently put together a team that happened to brew great beer.  Jim had the big ideas, Peter built the equipment, Ryan dreamed up recipes and Brian drank the beer.  Then their first employee came along, Mike, who is now the VP of Brewing...

...When the world opens back up again, you can try hoppy non-alcoholic drinks on tap at breweries like Third Space Brewing in Milwaukee and Fulton Brewing in Minneapolis. Until then, you’ll have to check your local...

Fulton Hopped! Hard Seltzer

When we did our hard seltzer taste test back in January, I was surprised by the relative lack of flavor options on the market outside of the sweet-and-fruity paradigm. Luckily, Fulton has spotted this market inefficiency and created a hopped hard seltzer to fill the void. Dry and resinous with a hop flavor that skews closer to piney West Coast IPAs, this seltzer also plays very nicely with gin for an easy backyard cocktail. Leave the pineapple and watermelon to the kids this summer and crack one of these instead.

...Hopped! proves one thing unquestionably: There is a ton of room in the craft seltzer market for innovation. Now that so many breweries have gotten into the bubbly stuff, it’s launches like Hopped! that are gonna help Fulton stand apart from competitors...

...The U has been testing this process with Fulton Brewing Co. to treat the spent yeast and other by-products on site. The early results are promising, researchers said. Rather than releasing carbon dioxide, the bacteria that work without aeration ferment the waste until they produce methane. That methane is captured and used to power the on-site treatment process. Meanwhile, the water is being cleaned to state standards, the brewery is saving money on sewage discharge fees and the residue left behind by the bacteria is turning into a useful fertilizer, the U has found...

Minneapolis-based Fulton Brewing has launched a new year-round entry, Chill City Chugger. The 4% abv golden lager is rolling out in 12-packs of 12-ounce cans (retailing at $12) and on draft, and joins Proper Porter, Standard Amber Lager, 300 Mosaic IPA, Lonely Blonde, and Hopstar Session IPA, among others, in Fulton’s year-round portfolio.

...To keep the celebration fresh, new offerings this year range from Fulton brewery’s “Small Talk Stout” and “Goodwill Gold” lager, appearances by rescue animals, disco ice skating and a 17-foot interactive illuminated yeti art installation by Christopher Lutter-Gardella.

Holidazzle started in the 1990s as a parade featuring floats, lights and music on Nicollet Mall. But the Downtown Council reformatted the event in 2014 and moved it to Loring Park in 2015, offering people...

“Different” in this case translates to real fruit purées, less sugar, and a special clarification process that they claim removes some of the residual medicinal taste found in macro hard seltzers. For Fulton Beer, offering hard seltzer was something of a no-brainer. Between customers looking for gluten-free options and drinks to take on outdoor excursions to the nearby lakes, the customer base was already there. The brewery also participates in all sorts of events, where portable, sessionable drinks are in high demand.

Fulton Brewing

Fulton Brewing is a success story out of the North Loop and Northeast neighborhoods. With a footprint in both spots, including a taproom, kitchen and full brewing facilities, Fulton has become Minnesota’s fourth-largest brewery by volume. Be sure to try their Lonely Blonde American Blonde Ale, Sweet Child of Vine IPA or their new line of hard seltzers. Pro tip: blood orange is the best seltzer flavor!
