The concrete, wood, and metal interior combined with the nicely arranged artwork and lighting create a hearty and warm ambiance...and the beer is great! It was so good I bought a growler to take back home to Duluth to share with my beer loving friends there. I’m already looking forward to coming back to try the other beers and refill my growler.
