This place is a complex. You drive up to the building, and it's actually very impressive (or not) to see what they have done with this beautiful older building.

The Brewhouse itself is a lot smaller than I initially thought. Seats maybe about 115 people, with a 10 or so seat bar. We arrived and were told that there was a 15-20 minute wait for the two of us, so we headed across the hall to the little "club" type thing, and had a beer. They serve Fitger beers there as well.

I had the Oatmeal Stout which was pretty tasty, I didn't take any notes for a formal review. we were called for our table in about 3 minutes, so I felt rushed to drink my beer so we didn't have our table given away to another party. Part of the reason I drove to Duluth and to check out Fitger's was their website stated they had a Woodford Reserve ESB on tap, so that was definitely a draw. When we were finally seated, I realized they didn't have the ESB on the tap board, and I asked the server...her response was "Yah, it was on tap the last couple days, but it's not gone, they just aren't pouring it today" Okay? So I can't get one, even though I'm fairly certain it was still on tap, ready to reach my lips. That was a bit frustrating.

I ended up getting the Cherry Batch, which was really tasty, and the Witte was decent as well. Food was slightly above average, but not much more. We had a couple salads, and veggie black bean chili, which was OK, no real stand out flavor for me.

Besides the disappointment of not having a beer available (I understand when a place runs out of a beer, or a menu item in general, but to just not serve it, herm). I'm not hating on Fitger's, but I didn't leave with a warm and fuzzy feeling, and I especially know that a special trip 250 miles across the great north woods isn't worth it, solely for Fitger's.
