Join Us for an Authentic Duluth Experience!

Do you like microbrews? Do you more specifically like Duluth brewed beer? Do you love being a UMD Bulldog? Then we want YOU at the first-ever UMD Alumni Duluth Experience Brewery Tour!

Founded by four UMD alums (see the story in the Spring 2014 online issue of ‘The Bridge’), The Duluth Experience highlights the wonderful craft beer options that Duluth has to offer. Your tour, led by Duluth Experience tour guides, will begin with a Behind-the-Scenes look at Vikre Distillery and Sampling, followed by a tour of the Bent Paddle Brewing Company and Sampling, from there you will see the Fitger’s Brewhouse Tour and Sampling before ending the night with dinner at Lake Avenue Cafe in Canal Park. In addition to touring multiple breweries and dinner, you will receive your own special beer-tasting sampling glass.
