Haley, North Shore Brewery Tour Participant
“The attention to detail is fabulous with the staff at Get Knit. We have been on the Duluth Brewery tour twice now and wouldn’t hesitate to go back. We are looking forward to doing more fun things with GetKnit!!!!!”
Cindy, North Shore Brewery Tour Participant
“After 10 weeks in my new home, I went on my first road trip, only I didn’t need to do any driving! I had previously heard about a daylong organized bus tour to breweries in Duluth. Since it was an organized craft beer tour to a place I had never been yet known for craft beer, I jumped at the chance. And I’m pleased to say, the Get Knit North Shore Brewery Tour and our hosts did not disappoint.”
Valerie, North Shore Brewery Tour Participant
