Fulton Brewing Co. announced today that they’ll be building a new brewery in Northeast Minneapolis and should be brewing by late 2014. They’ll be moving into the Caswell/Meggit Building at 2540 2nd Street Northeast with a new 80 barrel brewhouse, high speed bottling and kegging lines. They expect an initial capacity of 20,000 bbl. Let’s hope they don’t outgrow this one TOO soon.
Once the new brewery is up and running, all of their distributed beer will be brewed in Northeast Minneapolis, leaving their North Loop brewery open for small batches to supply their taproom. And lest you get excited about another taproom in Nordeast, don’t count on it. The guys plan to maintain their taproom in North Loop, and due to Minnesota law, they can only have one taproom.
Exciting news… congrats guys! It seems like just yesterday that I was sampling a homebrewed version of Worthy Adversary.
