Duluth is known as a great beer town and brewery tours are a fun way to see several in one day. Visitors can join a tour group through The Duluth Experience or sample a few brewery tours on their own. In addition to tasting amazing craft brews learn about the whole beer-making process. Many of the breweries have excellent restaurants, some with great views and patios to enjoy on warm days. Also, check their calendars for lively evening events such as music and trivia nights. Close to all the action find a tranquil retreat on the shores of Lake Superior. The Solglimt Bed and Breakfast is located in Canal Park and walking distance to several of the best breweries. Every morning sip our custom blend of Alakef Coffee on the many decks and porches. Then sit down to a three-course gourmet breakfast while taking in the lake views. Reserve your perfectly appointed guest room and plan a refreshing spring or summer getaway.
