Thestreet.com recently undertook the task of picking the best beer pub in each state. And the winner in Minnesota? Duluth’s own Fitger’s Brewhouse.
In “The Best Beer Pubs in All 50 States (and D.C.),” Jason Notte wrote: “Up on the north shore of Lake Superior, Fitger’s has been pouring since 1995 and has held true to its north country roots. Its Elk burgers are made with elk meat from a ranch in nearby Moose Lake. Its Blueberry Manilow wheat ale is infused with 450 pounds of Bayfield blueberries. It still hosts local acts and a Monday open mic on its stage and sponsors its own curling, softball, bike and ski teams as well as a local triathlon. All of those elements have made it beloved in its home state, but they’re just perks for visitors taken in by the Hatch chilies, ghost peppers and cherries in its Daughter of Wildfire pale ale or the smooth subtlety of its Witchtree ESB English pale ale on its nitrogen tap.”
And Wisconsin’s best? That would be Potosi Brewing in Potosi.
