My wife and I were able to stop by for a visit on 12/28/13. The location is handy to downtown and the sporting arenas. We walked over, so I really can’t comment on parking availability.

As we walked in, I noticed an outside terrace for the summer months. This is pretty much a semi-raw industrial space. Concrete floors and walls can make it a bit loud. It was a happy din as the place was crowded and everyone was having fun. I like the make-up of the crowd, there was a mix of ages (kids to grandparents), couple on dates, groups of friends, etc.

We were lucky enough to snag a table as two people were leaving. There is no table service so you have to go the bar. Service was friendly but a bit slow due to the crowd. I don’t mind waiting a few extra minutes given the friendly crowd to chat with.

They have a large blackboard which lists available beers, some limited notes on them, prices and what beers will be coming-up next. Prices were a reasonable $5. Pints of the regular beers and smaller snifters for the high APV beers. We had 4 beers total. We had a Ringer, Sweet Child of Vine (both regulars), then an imperial IPA and the Worthy Adversary Imperial Stout.

They don’t offer food, but there was a food truck out front that brought in peoples orders to their tables. There is a swag counter near the front door.

I will comeback for another visit, hopefully it will be in the summer and I combine it with a Twins game.

A great place, especially in the summer. Close to Target Field, in a little industrial area. Industrial, unfinished feel to the space, but not cramped, and really welcoming staff. All the regulars and a few seasonals on tap.

The plan I had was to do a brewery crawl with my pops post-Twins game. This was stop one. If I'd known they open earlier on game days, I would have spent less time at the game watching the Twins get their asses handed to them and would have spent more time at Fulton.

Either way, we left the game about the start of the 8th inning and managed to beat the massive crowd that made their way to Fulton after the game. There was a line outside of the brewery of anxious people waiting to get in to get some beer. I was the guy inside casually sipping my beer, nodding at the people in line, smacking my lips, and making comments like "Man, this is good," and "How f#cking refreshing!". Nah, just kidding, I didn't do all that.

I was actually at the bar sampling the different brews with my pops and talking to the cool as shit part owner and Fulton family member. He was a friendly guy that demonstrated a true passion for beer and beer culture. After a long conversation and sampling a number of the beers, I settled on the excellent The Designated Bitter. It's been a month now, so I hardly can recall the beer's attributes, but it was great. A 4/5.

I also got a pour of the Sweet Child of Vine at another venue and found that to be a superb beer as well. 4/5

Overall, this place stood out for the great personnel, for the high-celiinged space and easy post-game access, and for the excellent beer.

Cheers to the Fulton family.

PS. As I mentioned, Fulton can easily be part of a brewery crawl. My dad and I followed it with Dangerous Man (awesome), Indeed (excellent), Bauhaus Labs (excellent), and 612 Brewing (so-so). I would have liked to do Boom Island instead of 612. This is a lot of walking, but you get to cross the Mississippi and see some cool neighborhoods and drinks lots of beer. Can't beat that.
