The Duluth Curling & Craft Brewery Adventure
Duluth’s curling tradition goes back to 1891 when a group of local Duluthians formed The Duluth Curling & Skating Club. Since then, The “Club” has provided a gathering place for epic bonspiels and a learning environment for new curlers. Along the way, The Duluth Curling Club also became home to the first American curling team to win an Olympic gold medal – Team Shuster.
That’s right! Not only does Duluth boast an amazing number of medal winning brews, but we also claim the one – and only – Olympic gold-medal curling team. And what better way to celebrate these two amazing traditions than to combine them into one spectacular experience. We present… The Curling & Brews Experience. It’s the best sheet in town.

Then it’s time for a game! We’ll split into teams and go for gold under the prestigious banners touting Duluth as a top-tier training ground for champion curlers. After our Duluth Experience Bonspiel, we’ll hop aboard the brew bus and head to Ursa Minor Brewing for a tour of their new brewery and some VIP samples of their latest brews. After the tour and sampling, you’ll sit down for a pizza dinner – delicious Neapolitan-style pies from Ursa’s wood fired pizza oven. Curling. Craft beer. Pizza. This is a gold-medal experience!
