Stopped in after a few days on the Superior Hiking Trail needing a cold drink. I was alone and was seated by a waitress at a table near, but not at the bar, despite there being open seats at the bar. I hate sitting along at a table in a bar. I soon moved myself over to the bar. This place is a little heavy with regulars, and that impacts both the amount of attention one gets from the staff and also, I don't know, seems to make you feel a little less wanted.

The waitress I think knew her stuff. It's hard to tell if they don't know what they're talking about or they think you don't know what you're talking about, but her knowledge of beer was acceptable.

At the bar, the beer was good. It had good pressure, and the bartender knew his stuff. They had a broad selection of their own beers plus '10 Bigfoot. Nothing terribly exciting on the menu for beer, but nothing to avoid either.

I had a burger and fried, very simple but it did it's job.

I walked out with a growler and a tab slightly higher than I would have wanted it to be, but that's alright.

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.

Headed to this place while travelling for work. The building is in the downtown area and is a bit of a museum to the original Fitger's, which was nice.

I had the sampler which included their seasonal and Brewer's Reserve. Menu is a bit sandwich heavy, but food was solid.

Great pub to show what local Duluth brewers can do. I'd go back.
