Fitger's Brewhouse occupies prime real estate in the Fitger's complex, which once housed Fitger Brewing Company, a regional brewery that closed in the early 1970s. Given it's history, it's no surprise that the atmosphere in the Brewhouse is quite nice, with lots of old wood, exposed brick and brewerania on display. The quality of the beer is top-notch, and the guys working in the brewery are constantly churning out new brews for both the Brewhouse and the Red Star Bar. There's always a range of styles on tap... Belgian-style beers... lagers.... IPAs, etc. Lots of seasonal offerings... They also have a cask beer each week. I've always had great service and many of the servers seem to have a solid understanding of the various beer styles. As I mentioned, the beer selection is great... definitely diverse. The food selection is quite good too, with a variety of choices and price ranges. And though I'm not a vegetarian, the veggie options are pretty tasty as well. Great bar, great beer, great people, great brewers. Thumbs WAY up. (1,040 characters)

Got the flight which is 7 beers that they preselected. I wish places that did this would at least let you choose one or two of your own. Was not really impressed by any of the beers. They were ok but nothing that I would select again. The service was very good, our waitress was very attentive. The main reason for going to Fitgers is their Wild Rice burger. It is one of the better ones I have ever had and well worth the visit just for that.

There were a total of 11 beers on tap and 2 of that same 11 also available on cask. (529 characters)

I'm not sure if I just got lucky on the last visit but both beers were really phenomenal. The Big Boat stout is really rich and unique - a must try for stout lovers. My recollection of past visits is also that the beer was excellent. The food was good, and the service was great. This is a must-stop location for any trip I make to Duluth. (339 characters)

They have 13 tap handles and put out a decent variety of beer - porters, pale ales, sours, wheats, and ales. The food is pretty standard bar fare augmented with some salads and interesting sandwiches. It is a must stop if you are near Duluth. (242 characters)

Incredible venue in a historic hotel on the shores of Lake Superior. Place was packed not only for beer but for food. Did a sampler and was impressed with an oatmeal stout, as well as an imperial. A must stop for a beer lover in the area. (241 characters)

I live next to this place. It has mostly made from scratch food and about a half dozen house made craft beers on tap (all pretty solid). If you are out of town this would be a pretty safe bet for a satisfying evening of beer and food. Expect an hour wait on fri and sat. (272 characters)
