“Great micro brewery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We stopped at a local bar and had a glass of the bent paddle black ale. In conversation with the patrons we learned about this brewery. What a rising Star. Great beer, great people, a must stop if you like well brewed micro brew.

“Top Notch Beer, Great New Addition in Craft Beer Capital of MN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Bent Paddle Brewing, Duluth, MN, has done is right. Opened in May 2013, I've been to the brewery numerous times for tours and visit the taproom. Great atmosphere, the owners are awesome and the beer is outstanding. The Bent Hop IPA is outstanding and my favorite. I was never a hoppy guy but this beer has changed by feelings. You just can't go back to the mass produced crap anymore. The Backcountry Blonde is a seasonal brew but maybe canned in 2014, its a really good one. The Black Ale is smooth for a dark beer and not as hoppy as Bent Hop. The new Pils is a nice lager with some hop. Brewery is located in sketchy Lincoln Park of Duluth but the area is improving with the brewery, Frost River Trading, and others. Check out the brewery on Thursday evenings for Food Truck Thursday. Bring in food to the tap room from the trucks and enjoy the beer. *Currently, the beer is available in the Duluth area in cans and at many local bars and restaurants (outside of growlers from the taproom). The (12oz) can designs are cool and fresh. The BP team continues to do it right and is such a great addition to the MN craft beer industry and is the flagship for the breweries/brewpubs in Duluth. Who wouldn't drink quality beer made from the great water of Lake Superior? Lake Superior water or Minneapolis made beer from the Old Miss? I know my decision.

“Great beer - weird vibe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We were excited to check out the taproom on a recent Friday evening. Everything was good - the clean space, spots available at the bar, and, of course, the IPA. The downfall was the server who couldn't have been less welcoming, not just to us but to anyone at the bar. Not sure what his problem was and we didn't hang around long enough to find out.
