We know the importance of supporting local businesses and artists. That is why we try our best to make sure we are able to source some great products from our own community and state. Here are our top five locally-made products that you can find in the Brewhouse Beer Store.
1. Growler Totes made by Cut Loose Creations. Duluth, MN
– When Anita Stech of Cut Loose Creations came to us with an idea to breathe new life into some of our older T-shirts, we were ecstatic. The idea was simple – take the T-shirts we already sell in the store and use our unique beer logo designs to create fashionable and durable growler carriers. We are now happy to be able to offer these shirts repurposed as unique growler totes that are only available in-store because of their one-of-a-kind nature.
2. Duluth Pack Growler Packs and Leather Coasters. Duluth, MN
-Another Growler carrier that you can find in the Beer Store is made by Duluth’s original outdoors outfitter, Duluth Pack. Made of Duluth Pack’s signature canvas, this pack bears the Fitger’s Brewhouse kegman. Also bearing our kegman logo is the Leather Coasters from Duluth Pack that are the perfect addition to any man cave.
3. Brewhouse Beer Soap and Lip Balm. Superior, WI
-With the help of Carolyn Jones of CMT Farm in Superior, we are finally able to feature our own beer in the making of beer soap that we sell in our store. Using our Apricot Wheat beer, this soap is great for your skin and makes use of natural exfoliants from apricot seeds. Jones also supplies us with 2 different kinds of lip balm. One is apricot for our Apricot Wheat beer, the other is made using Cascade hops!
4. Cribbage Boards by Wood from the Hood. Minneapolis, MN
-One of our favorite items that you can find in the Beer Store are the cribbage boards made from reclaimed wood from Twin Cities neighborhoods courtesy of Wood from the Hood. This company takes the wood from discarded trees and gives them a second life as beautiful products that you can use in your home. Choose your cribbage board from different species of lumber and pair with a deck of Brewhouse playing cards!
5. Beer art posters from local artists. Duluth, MN
-We like to give a little bit of flair to our beer and give some of them their own artwork. In some cases we have commissioned local artists to create unique works of art for our beer that capture their spirit. We are now happy to be able to offer this beer art as posters available in our store from local artists David Moreira, Adam Swanson, and Chris Monroe.
