The coast of Lake Superior offers not only breathtaking views of one of the most famous Great Lakes, but also a bounty of unique, cutting-edge breweries waiting to be explored. Come get a taste of the North Shore as we tap into some of the finest breweries in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Duluth has claimed to be The Craft Brewery Capital of Minnesota, and we are excited to sip our way through this memorable city with you.
Our GetKnit Gurus will help you get a jump start on the day with a sunrise breakfast of pastries and our first “brew” of the day – coffee. A deluxe motor-coach will then whisk us away to 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 that will feature both their production facility and their brand-new taproom. From there, we’ll travel to Canal Park Brewing Company nestled on the shore of Lake Superior in Canal Park. Here we’ll enjoy a flight of their house-made beers alongside of a scrumptious pub-style lunch. After re-fueling, we’ll head to one of Duluth’s newest breweries, Ursa Minor Brewing Company, which features a selection of rotating taps and a wood fired oven which features a selection of artisan Napolitano style pizzas made from the highest quality ingredients. Next, our crew will make our way to up shore to Two Harbors, home 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. From there, we’ll head back to Duluth and make a visit to “Duluth’s Original Brewpub” Fitger’s Brewhouse. Located in the historic Fitger’s facility, this brewery has been making some of the finest brews on the north shore since 1995. Before making the journey home, we’ll finish our Beer-venture at 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 in by local favorite, OMC Smokehouse. Featuring a mix of smoked brisket, pulled chicken, slow roasted pulled pork with house made BBQ sauce alongside of potato salad, beans and Mac-n-Cheese – this meal is sure to end our day on a flavorful note.
Between the thirst quenching beer tastings from the six 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.”
