A lot of home-brewers toil away in their garages dreaming of something bigger. These guys made it a reality. With a taste for the kind of approachable craft brews Minnesotans want, Fulton started by contract-brewing out of — gasp! — Wisconsin (to ramp up production). Today, their North Loop taproom is always bustling (complete with a kitchen housed in a 1968 Airstream Sovereign trailer), while a second 51,000-square-foot brewery in northeast Minneapolis pumps out kegs of Sweet Child of Vine and Lonely Blonde.
