To celebrate the coming of fall, we are hosting a unique beer dinner and live music event and live brewing demonstration on the evening of Wednesday, September 21st. We are featuring amazing craft beers from Fulton Brewing Company paired with a multiple course dinner designed and prepared by Executive Chef Jeff Anderson from Blue Plate Restaurant Co.
To kick off the evening, the talented Brady Toops will perform a concert. Brady, the small town Minnesota singer/songwriter who is becoming known on the national scene, is making a stop at the lodge on a tour across the upper Midwest to showcase music from his upcoming album. You don’t want to miss this!
We have been doing this beer dinner thing for a few years now and we have always wanted to incorporate an actual brewing component into the dinner. Well…our farm grown hops will be ready to pick and the plan is to brew a ‘wet’ hopped beer at the dinner as a demonstration for our guests. Juno Choi, a brewing industry expert from BSG (Brewer Supply Group), will be on hand to answer any questions about the brewing process. Jared Stober, CEO at Two Track Malting, will be available to talk about craft malts grown and malted in North Dakota.
At our Fall Beer Dinner, you will experience a ‘one night only’ menu complete with brewery stories and expert pairings. Ryan Petz, president and co-founder of Fulton Brewing Company, will introduce each of his beers. Chef Jeff will describe the pairings as each course is served.
Our Fall Beer Dinner guests will be among the first to try Fulton’s new year round beer ‘Standard Lager’. Standard is an all-malt American lager, amber in hue and full of flavor. It is as American as baseball and apple pie. We will also be featuring Fulton’s Taproom exclusive ‘MPLS Mild’, an English Dark Mild Ale. It’s perfect for ushering in the chilly fall evenings ahead.

About the Brewery
Fulton Brewing Company was founded in 2009 by a group of young guys who were homebrewing out of a South Minneapolis garage. Their dream was to build a real Minneapolis brewery in 5-10 years, and quit their day jobs along the way. They never guessed they’d build two Minneapolis breweries in three years. Fulton is now a staple on tap lines and liquor stores across the region. They have built a reliable lineup of flavorful craft brews for beer lovers across the taste spectrum.
Fulton president and co-founder, Ryan Petz, will be introducing his delicious beers at the dinner and sharing stories from his experience in the craft beer business.
