Our second stop on the 4th Flight of the #MNBucketListBreweryTour [I know, I know, acronym!] was at Fulton Brewing. So here’s the rundown; Fulton started as a home brewing operation out of a one car garage in a South Minneapolis alley in 2006. The ten gallon nano brewery was made out of some half barrel kegs and an old bed frame. They served their first keg of Sweet Child of Vine at the Happy Gnome in October of 2009. The brewery opened in September 2010 and in March 2012, Fulton became home of the first brewery taproom in the Twin Cities. The second brewery in NEMpls started production in late 2014. Which, btw, I didn’t know there was more than one. Fulton is big on community since beer brings people together (right?!). Their involvement includes the Ful10 fund (a micro loan program for entrepreneurs), Fulton racing, and partnerships supporting philanthropic organizations and events. Something outside of the resume-like facts? The staff was extra nice when they gave me copy paper to give to our littlest bucket-lister, Brooke, to color on. We were buddies, her with her markers and me,… sippin’ on citrus ginger ale.
Super fun thing: Julie, who is an incredible photographer (and person) did a great write up after the tour on her blog.
