Canal Park has a modern boxlike look and is located on the lake and park.

It has both a great side and front patio. Both (but especially the front) have just awesome views of Lake Superior. I like the Adirondack chairs in the front patio.

There is a hostess stand as you enter. There are several different dining areas. I headed straight to the bar. It is light blonde wood with a blue tile base. My Danish ancestors would approve. Actually, the whole decor is modern with a Scandinavian vibe. There are tanks in the front of the building and behind glass at the bar.

Service was friendly and efficient.

The menu looked good, but I didn't eat on this visit.

8 house beers on tap. ESB, German wheat. Tripel, Brown, Maple Maibock (!!), Porter, Saison and IPA that hits a lot of styles. They also offer growlers to go.

Well worth a stop and only a 15 minute stroll form Fitgers and Carmodys.

Great setting on the shores of lake Superior with the typical industrial/modern interior design and a great outdoor patio with firepit.
Beers I tried were all good, the food is outstanding although expensive. Service was excellent.
Selection of beers is limited but a decent variety.
All in all, a good time and worth the visit.

Great location right on Lake Superior.
Large bar to belly up and even more table seating. Outdoor tables and fireplace for when weather permits.
Staff friendly and efficient and food was quite good. We'll above par for a brewpub.
Only 8 beers on tap - I typically want more variety and options. But they had a 2 year old English barleywine that was solid. That tells me the brewers are serious.
Definitely worth a stop for at least one beer and a bite if you're in Duluth.

Overlooking Lake Superior makes this venue special in itself. Inside, the brewpub/restaurant is pretty standard. The bar is separate from the dining area for the most part. A selection of 8 or so of their beers are available and you can get full pints or flights of any size. I had to try a flight because the selection was pretty solid. I tried the imperial stout, dubbel, triple, brown ale, and red lager. Overall, decent brews; I was impressed with the imperial stout as that is my favorite and I tend to be picky. The bartenders were friendly, knowledgeable, and patient enough to put up with a bachelor party so props to them. I would definitely revisit if I was in the area.

Gorgeous outdoor seating during the summer and early fall, and a nice enough indoors when it inevitably gets too cold. It's bit of a tourist trap for sure, but don't let that discourage you, it's a pretty darn good tourist trap. Their beers are usually good but rarely great, but they've got a great variety so you're sure to find something you like. Service is outstanding, the waiters will happily describe the options to you and make recommendations. If you order the right stuff, you'll get some great food. Highly recommend the beer cheese soup and the fish and chips.

Convivial atmosphere, exceptional view of Lake Superior, decent menu, decent beer. I have only been there during the day and then the crowd has a lot of tourists.

Nifty modern spot on the shore of Lake Superior. Sat alongside a big firepit outside so our dog could join us - they brought him water and treats!

Service was awesome, staff knew the beers by heart and made solid recommendations. Seven taps, but seven distinct styles, plus a cask or two. Beer was actually pretty good, definitely more than we were expecting, and the food was well above standard pub food (but you pay for it).

If you bring your dog, it can't be beat for the area.
