Stayed at Fitger's over the 4th. For the atmosphere, the rating is based upon the entire Fitger's experience (their superb location sitting on Lake Superior, the aroma of brewing beer as you walk through the complex, etc.) not just the inside of the brewpub.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of both brew and grub. They had several offerings on tap (and on the menu was a sampler of 7 beers for 7 bucks). I went for the Starfire on cask and the nitro-tap oatmeal stout (excellent!). They offer good pub fare...I enjoyed the salmon burger (the salmon comes from the local Northern Waters Smokehaus...also worth a visit) and would have it again next time. If you are in Duluth, you should do yourself a favor and stop in!
PS--If you are headed to the BWCA and can bear the weight, fill up one of their nalgene adventure growlers.
PPS--Also gotta love a brewpub that will deliver growlers to you (within the Duluth area)!

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.

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.

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.

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.
