The Best Craft Brews in Duluth
Duluth has a rich brewing tradition. In fact, Duluth informally likes to call itself the craft beer capital of Minnesota, and we agree. Today, that brewing history is reflected by the incredible range of local micro breweries and brewpubs in the area. Beer-lovers will rejoice in the impressive range of unique craft brews. One of the most popular breweries in Duluth remains Fitger’s Brewhouse. For a time, Fitgers was Duluth’s only brewpub, first opening its doors in 1995. Other popular destinations for craft brews include Bent Paddle Brewing, Canal Park Brewery, and Lake Superior Brewing Company.
Though Duluth’s old favorite hotspots are still an impressive presence in Duluth, there are some newcomers in the Twin Ports area that are producing some incredibly delicious craft brews. Both of the newest places to open were spearheaded by former master brewers of Fitger’s Brewery. The first of these is Hoops Brewing, located in nearby Canal Park. The owners of Hoops plan to brew up to 30 different brews, making it a must-do stop on your beer-drinking adventure. The second new destination is Earth Rider Brewing Company in Superior. The brewery will be located near the High Bridge in the former home of Leamon Mercantile Co. The brewhouse is across the street from the historic Cedar Lounge, which is currently a beer-centric tavern, and will soon re-open as the Earth Rider taproom. The 20-barrel brewhouse is still under construction, and the first batch of beer is expected later this summer or early fall.
