What’s New with the North Shore Craft Beer Scene?

Craft Beer InfographicIt’s been a year since we created the original North Shore Craft Beer Infographic and a lot has changed. To kick off the Oktoberfest season, we thought it was time to update the map and information. Some of the exciting and notable changes to the local craft beer scene over the past year include:

  • Castle Danger Brewing Company built a brand new production facility in Two Harbors and increased from a 3-barrel system to a 30-barrel system.
  • Thirsty Pagan Brewing increased their brewhouse from a 3-barrel system to a 7-barrel system and expanded their sour beer operations.
  • Borealis Fermentery increased from a half-barrel system to a 1-barrel system and Ken has joined The Duluth Experience Brewery Tour team!
  • Dubrue closed its operations.
  • Blacklist Brewing increased to their brewhouse to a 4-barrel system and has continued to release amazing Belgian-inspired beers.
  • Fitger’s Brewhouse updated their kegging system with a new fleet of sanke kegs and have increased their barrel-aging program. They also added a new tied house in Canal Park – Endion Station – which has a full selection of Brewhouse beer and an amazing lineup of ciders.
  • Lake Superior Brewing Company built a taproom at their production facility.
  • Bent Paddle Brewing Company added a lot of fermentation capacity to their production facility and started producing distillers beer for Vikre Distillery.
  • Canal Park Brewing Company won the silver award in the 2014 World Beer Cup for their Nut Hatchet Nut Brown Ale!

As you can see, the North Shore Craft Beer Scene is growing and prospering along the shores of Lake Superior. Duluth has put itself on the map for craft beer and craft distillation and we couldn’t be more proud of our good friends at each of our local breweries.
