Legitimate Hustle Pale Ale

Meaningful Craft Beer Collaboration In Duluth

We are super happy to announce the second brew from The Duluth Experience Collaboration Brew Program!

That’s right! For this brew, we teamed up with our friend, Alex “Coke” Chocholousek at The Fitger’s Brewhouse to craft The Legitimate Hustle Pale Ale, a classic North Shore-style pale ale brewed with kveik yeast to give it a fun, fruity finish.

Most importantly tho… proceeds from the sale of The Legitimate Hustle Pale Ale will support Life House’s mission to reconnect homeless and street youth to their dreams. All of the net proceeds from The Legitimate Hustle Pale Ale will be donated to Life House. Specifically, the funds will be used to help complete the construction (already underway) of a classroom and retail space for Life House’s Legitimate Hustle Program which gives youth an opportunity to safely earn money while learning entrepreneurial and employment skills. It’s something we can all get behind.

Join us on Friday, August 30th for The Legitimate Hustle Pale Ale Release Party at The Barrel Room! C’mon down for some great beer and great music… all for a great cause.
