In celebration of the 5-year anniversary of our longest running event – the North Shore Brewery Tour – we are excited to present an overnight version of this beloved Get-together!
Join us on our overnight beer-venture to the beautiful North Shore to embark on a weekend chalked full of delicious craft beer fun. From behind the scenes tours at iconic breweries, sipping unlimited tastings of a wide selection of craft beers, delicious hearty meals, strolling around Canal Park, relaxing next to a roaring fire, and drinking in the vibrant nightlife… this beer-lovers weekend getaway has something for everyone! Not only will you find fun and entertainment, but GetKnit will plan all the details of your weekend “up north” so you can truly relax and enjoy this one-of-a-kind overnight experience.
Our weekend will begin bright and early on Saturday morning as we gather at St. Paul’s Union Depot where your local GetKnit Gurus will excitedly await your arrival with a delicious pastry and coffee breakfast. We’ll be able to store your luggage safely below and then board our luxury coach bus that will whisk us away for our journey north to explore the breweries along the North Shore!
Upon arriving in Duluth, we will make our first stop at Bent Paddle Brewing Company – a fast-growing, state of the art brewery, where we will get a taste of the day to come with signature beer tastings and an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour as they open up early just for our group. From there, we’ll travel to Canal Park Brewing Company, where we will fill up with several more tastings and a hearty beer-inspired lunch. After re-fueling, Lake Superior Brewing Company will welcome us with another round of tastings to be complemented by a brief lesson on the history of brewing in the North Shore region. Next, our crew will head to “Duluth’s Original Brewpub”, Fitger’s Brewhouse. Here we’ll enjoy some tastings in their beautiful Barrel Room which is located in the iconic Fitger’s complex. From there, we’ll head down the road to Blacklist Artisan Ales, who specialize in Belgian-style beers. Blacklist thrills its followers with bold flavors, innovative ingredient selections, and refreshing ales that are sure to leave a lasting impression.
After visiting five breweries, we’ll reload our trusty transport and travel to our accommodations for the evening at The Inn on Lake Superior in historic Canal Park. Upon arrival, we’ll have roughly two hours of free time to clean up, relax, and enjoy the our accommodations at this beautiful property.
After working up our appetites with a full day of beer drinking, we’ll come back together and take a short jaunt from the hotel to the newly opened Hoops Brewing. This new Duluth staple is “brewer owned, brewer driven” which is clear in their impressive swath of beers. Here, we will enjoy our final round of tastings with a BBQ-inspired dinner catered by local favorite, OMC Smokehouse. Featuring a mix of smoked brisket, pulled chicken, slow roasted pulled pork with house-made BBQ sauce alongside potato salad, beans and corn – this meal is sure to end our day on a flavorful note.
After dinner, the night is yours to do with what you will! Explore Canal Park by checking out the Aerial Lift Bridge, take a beer-break and taste some local spirits at Vikre Distillery, enjoy one of the many local watering holes, or dance the night away at The Sports Garden owned by iconic Grandma’s Saloon. Your GetKnit Gurus are happy to make suggestions and join in your evening excursions!
If a night on the town sounds too exhausting, you can enjoy one of the amenities offered by The Inn on Lake Superior. Take a dip in the indoor pool or warm-up in the hot tub or sauna. Enjoy the stars and the company of friends in the rooftop heated pool. There’s no wrong way to enjoy an evening in Canal Park, but however you choose to enjoy it and whenever you decide to call it a night, your conveniently close hotel room and comfy bed are sure to be the icing on the cake.
Whether you’re an early-riser or have turned sleeping-in into an art form, breakfast will be waiting in the hotel lobby upon waking. Once you fill up your belly, the morning is yours. Explore the shops, coffee houses, and sights in Canal Park or enjoy the back of your eyelids with a relaxing nap in the carefree environment of your hotel room.
We will re-group at approximately 10:15 AM for day two of our beer-venture. Coffee in hand, we will board our bus and head north up the shore to Two Harbors, MN. Home of the new site of Castle Danger Brewery , a one-of-a-kind brewery who makes their mark on the local brewery scene by serving up “dangerously” good ales. Here they will open up early just for our group and give us a behind the scenes tour of their recently expanded brewing facility. Next we will head back south and cross over the bridge to Superior, WI for our final two stops on our getaway. First up, we’ll visit Thirsty Pagan Brewing which has been “serving awesome pizza and really awesome beer for the past 10 years.” Here we’ll get to enjoy both their specialties, as we indulge in a hearty pizza and salad buffet for lunch paired with an array of beer tastings. After we’ve refueled, we will head to the newest brewery to be added to the growing beer scene in the northland, Earth Rider Brewery. While this is the newest brewery in the area, it is comprised of a team of decorated brewers and brewing-industry professionals. Here we’ll enjoy our final round of tastings and get insights into the historic brewing scene from their accredited group of brewery staff.
Between the thirst quenching beer tastings from the nine North Shore breweries and the mouth-watering meals from some of Duluth’s finest eateries, you will have countless opportunities to purchase pints, growlers, and souvenirs to help remind you of this day that is sure to leave you feeling good and “hoppy.”
