In February, the Growler, a Twin Cities-based craft-beer mag, announced what those of us in Duluth have been catching on to for at least a couple of years now.
“Duluth is undergoing a serious craft beer boom,” the magazine reported. “The scene is growing rapidly. … The combination of Duluth’s natural splendor and the growing craft beer scene will ultimately put it on the map as a world-class beer tourism destination.”
No wonder our mayor proclaimed Duluth “the Craft Beer Capitol of Minnesota,” or the “CBC of MN.” He even tried to trademark it when he made the proclamation in a column in the Growler, also in February.
And on what did the mayor base his proclamation?
