Fulton II, Electric Boogaloo

Fulton Brewing Co.Updated.


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.

Fulton Preservation Mild

preservationCoolio. Fulton is releasing the latest beer in their Garage Series, Preservation, a mild ale and is donating $1000 to support Friends of the Mississippi River. Incidentally, be sure to check out FMR’s “Mississippi River Challenge” in July – it’s always a fun paddle event.

Now nearly a forgotten style, Mild ale originates from England, where less than a century ago it represented the majority of beer brewed there. At 3.2% ABV, Fulton Preservation Mild is the definition of a session beer. Six grains, including flaked oats and Britain’s prized Maris Otter, lend it a garnet brown color, silky mouthfeel and surprisingly substantial body. Preservation greets your palate with a subtle interplay of nutty, roasty, and toffee malt character. It’s so easy to drink, you’ll soon find yourself ordering another, and another – if our brewers haven’t finished it all already.

There’s more to this Mild. Preservation is named in honor of local non-profit Friends of the Mississippi River. Since 1993, FMR has worked to preserve and improve the quality of the Mississippi’s waters. The folks from FMR will be joining us at the taproom launch tomorrow, and our Ful10 Fund will be donating $1,000 to support their ongoing efforts.

Preservation will be available on draft and in growlers at the taproom, and you’ll also be able to find it on draft at local bars and restaurants. We won’t be limiting the availability of growlers, so you can get them until we run out. Better yet, growlers will be just $10, and pints can be had for just $4 (tax included, as always). No bottles this year, unfortunately.

Beer Dabbler Bullpen at the Saints’ Stadium

beerdabblerThe Beer Dabbler and The St. Paul Saints are pairing up to bring 21 craft beers to the ballpark this year. The area, dubbed The Beer Dabbler Bullpen, will be located in the left field corner and will feature seven different breweries, a 70 foot custom bar and a retail space. This outdoor craft beer area will debut at the Saints’ May 11 exhibition game against the Gary SouthShore RailCats.

In addition to other beers, Badger Hill plans to launch a limited release White IPA at the Bullpen. You’ll also be able to find beers from Alaskan, Fulton, Goose Island, Lift Bridge, Odell and Third Street.

“Beer and baseball are the perfect combination at the ballpark,” said Scott Bush, assistant general manager, St. Paul Saints. “Our goal is to enhance the Saints experience and this partnership with the Beer Dabbler will allow our fans to choose from a wide variety of tasty craft beers.  A ‘call to the Bullpen’ will definitely have a different meaning this year.”

“We are excited to bring fans even more tasty reasons to come to a ballgame this year,” said Joseph Alton, project director at the Beer Dabbler. “What pairs better than beer and baseball? The Saint Paul Saints are an outdoor summer institution in Minnesota and now you’ll be hard pressed to find a better draught list at another sporting event this summer.”
