Blacklist Artisan Ales
Blacklist Artisan Ales was founded in by two high school buddies – Jon Loss and Brian Schanzenbach – who had a dream of one day opening a brewery. Years later, they’ve established themselves as The North Shore’s premier Belgian-inspired brewery and a hip taproom experience in Downtown Duluth’s Historic Arts & Theater District. The Blacklist Team describes themselves as a “gypsy brewing, nomadic, operation” creating flavorful ales in small batches, using unique recipes and bold techniques.
Fun Fact: Blacklist’s first few years of commercial brewing took place in a garage space shared with a brewery named Dubrue… and in 2015 that brewery went up in flames. Blacklist arose from the ashes and built a beautiful taproom and music venue in the heart of Duluth’s Historic Arts & Theater District where they continue to create amazing interpretations of classic Belgian styles.
