Fulton transformed a vintage Airstream trailer into its own kitchen

The brewery has relied on outside food trucks since 2012.

One of Minnesota's biggest craft brewers has found a novel way to add food to their menu: a gleaming, super-hip 30-foot 1968 Airstream trailer.

A unique twist on the whole "food truck" thing, the Fulton Taproom Kitchen officially starts cooking at the Minneapolis brewery on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

The beermaker, located in the city's North Loop neighborhood, announced the addition on Thursday, saying they've brought on former Corner Table chef Scott Pampuch to run it. 

After finding and purchasing the vintage Airstream, Fulton says, they had it "gutted, restored, polished and built out as a functioning commercial kitchen." 

It'll be parked in the driveway outside the brewery, the same space where a succession of food trucks has served Fulton customers for the past five years, the company says. 

Though the trailer will be keeping its wheels (and thus maintain that classic Airstream look), Fulton says it'll be a permanent fixture. 

What's on the menu

There aren't any specific details yet, but according to the brewery's website, the menu will "focus on pairing with Fulton Beers," using "simple, quality ingredients."

But the executive chef's credentials and background suggest the offerings will be of the guilt-free, locally sourced variety. It's because Pampuch, according to his website, is known as a "sustainable foods activist."

And Eater says his relationships with local food suppliers means Fulton customers can expect "bread from St. Agnes Bakery" or "some cured meats from Mike Phillips’ Red Table," while "Lowry Hill meats will be grinding sausages and hamburger meat, and more."
