The Brewhouse is located in the Fitger's complex. An old brick building located just off the lake. It is a mall, a hotel, a entertainment complex.

The quality of the beers is exceptional. I had a Schwartzviezen black wheat wine. It was crazy good. I also had an IPA and Oatmeal Stout.

The service is good and attentive, but don't expect too much as it is a Up Nort place, don't cha know.

I believe there were about 14 taps of different brews. A standard IPA and a list of different quafables. The did have a beer engine, but it was not online while I was there.

The food is very good for the veggie minded. I may be over selling the food, but I have never had a bad meal and I love the options.

Overall, this is the place to go in the Duluth area. The Thirsty Pagan is in WI, but if I only had one choice for beers in the Duluth area it would be Fitger's (861 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)
