Very kind people, good service and willing to answer questions...even letting you sample before you buy. Good selection and some they don't can and only available there. Stop in!

Some of the best beer in the state. Odd location and somewhat uncomfortable seating, but friendly, knowledgeable staff and a great selection, with nitro or CO2 options for most of the beer. Only drawback is they limit growler fills to the stuff you can buy on shelves anyway--infusions have been off-limits in my experience.

While not in the most convenient location of Duluth, well worth the visit. Their taproom is quite small but very nice. Small taproom with a solid amount of seating.It was pretty quiet when I stopped by and I am not too sure on how frequent they hold events. The taproom does not appear to be able to hold large events. Not sure if they get taprooms or if there is any good delivery in the area. The beer is some of the best in all of Minnesota, between their flagships and seasonals, one cannot go wrong. Their double shot double black might be the best beer in all of Minnesota, move over Darkness.

I had received several Bent Paddle beers as trade extras and really enjoyed most of them. I was really excited to have their offerings on tap and buy some cans to go for vacation. We walked into the bar on a Saturday about an hour after they opened. There was 10 stools at the bar and we sat right in the middle. There were 2 bartenders and both of them ignored up for over 10 minutes until we got up and left.

It was unbelievable sitting there at the bar and watch people walk up repeatedly and get served while we were ignored.

The taproom is almost part of the brewery so the vibe is industrial/modern. Fairly small but the service is decent. It's a popular spot these days and was crowded when I was there. The draw is the excellent beers.

This brewery is in a unique industrial area of Duluth. The taproom plays off this location with a more industrial vibe. Though small, very inviting. Really fun place, I'd go back for sure!
