Are you a fan of Blacklist? Not the TV show, folks (consider the source), but the made-in-Minnesota beer brewed in Duluth? If not, you need to be, and here’s why: it’s really good. The North Shore beer scene is bursting. Beer aficionados “up north” have been quietly crafting some of the best brews around, and we’re pretty excited to have these beers available for everyone of legal age to try. Blacklist Brewing focuses on small batches, hand-crafted, Belgian-inspired beers. This tiny production team is big on flavor-packed ales. 

A few of the beers from Blacklist Brewing:

  • Or De Belgique
    The name might not roll off your tongue, but this strong Belgian Golden will keep asking for more.
  • Imperial Rhubarb Wit
    Thanksgiving Beer? Here’s a pick that will be available in time for the turkey. Does this say Minnesota or what? Rhubarb adds a touch of tartness to this spicy ale. 8.0% ABV.
  • Spruce Tipped
    You won’t miss summer one minute with this hearty spruce-tipped ale. It’s a whopping 9.5% with aromatics to knock your socks off.
  • Sour Wit
    Have you ever been experienced? Sours aren’t for everyone, and that’s okay. This unique lacto-soured Wit is tangy and light.
  • Or Cran
    We think these guys love the holiday season because so many of their beers seem to be made with them in mind. Enjoy this cranberry Strong Belgian Golden ale soon.

Minnesota has had a reputation for good beer, and the Duluth craft beer scene has been making headlines outside our great state. Check out what they are saying in the Chicago Tribune

If you are heading up north or just visiting the Twin Ports, experience the scene for yourself. And, don’t worry, when you come home, you can find the beer you fell in love with in our beer coolers. Don’t see what you want? Let us know.
