Holy crap does this place ever define ’dive’. It has the 50’s junkyard theme going on. Their regulars are in the ’okay’ range and some seasonals make you want to poke your eyes out, but then they go ahead and make some really damn fine brews. If you’re spending time up in the area, it’s worth a hit once.
A pleasant surprise on my first trip to the Duluth area. Housed in a older building, they have two rooms, a dining area and a dimly lit bar area. In addition they have a few tables out front and a beer garden out back where food cannot be ordered. Place looks like it has changed in 20+ years. Service was solid and timely. A surprising number of beers on tap (15+) with samplers available. Food was solid, mainly pizza that I demolished :). Food prices seemed a bit steep but beer seemed reasonable. Like I said, a pleasant surprise and I would definitely hit it again if in the area.
Stopped in for the first time July 2, 2015. Two rooms, you enter the dining room, but the bar is much more interesting and definitely the place to sit unless you go outside. A surprising number of beers on tap, I have rarely seen more at a brewery, and I am fairly sure it was more than nine. Quality is also surprisingly high for this brewpub that stays under the radar, which I attribute to their infrequent appearance at festivals. Service was friendly. The pizza we ordered was far too large, and I thought the waitress might have told us that, especially after she asked if we also wanted appetizers. Food and beer is expensive, especially considering where they are. Pizza was ok, fairly thick crust and very filling. Bar area is kind of dark, with lamps and the only natural light through the small, high windows of glass blocks.
Maybe the best place in Superior, definitely worth hoping over from Duluth. I really enjoyed the beer and had a really good calzone. Very friendly staff. Sat and the bar and then came back later that evening to eat. Live music in the bar area, ate in the room outside, music was audible but low enough to hold a conversation over. Will be back!
Great brew pub and pizza joint. Beer has been brewed at this location for a very long time and it turns a decent product. I did have two enjoyable brews that are not listed on ratebeer; Lawn Chair Ale and the hand-pumped Dark English Mild.
Great looking old style looking bar with 9 beers on tap. A couple misses but quite a few killer brews, some of the best pizza I have ever had. Staff is super friendly and out going. I will be back when in the area.
At most there are two guest taps, the rest are from the brewery itself. Situated in an old creamery, this quaint brew pub serves superb pizza. Their sauce is wonderful and sausage is made locally and has just the right amount of spiciness. Grab a flight of all 9 beers on tap, a bottle from their decent bottle selection and take a growler to go.
Parking free but on street. Live music in the evenings. Only catch, they don’t open until 4.
Stopped in on Nov. 17, 2011. Charming is the best way to describe it. Older neighborhood, older building, pretty much a no-frills kind of place. Extremely friendly wait staff, flights available, and I tried 8 taps and 1 cask beer for $6. Great stop.
