About Fulton Brewery

Enjoy a pint of Fulton on tap just 38 feet from where it was brewed. Browse a selection of Fulton gear & gifts while you sip (house-brewed soda is also an option), but be sure to watch out for the forklift and for the brewers, because they can be dangerous. If you want a bite while you’re here, you can enjoy offerings from a rotation of food trucks (including Hot Indian the night of our event).
