“Every town should have a place like this”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

7 West Tap House, which opened in October 2012, is a small spot in an 1890's building that has kept as much of the old as possible combining it with sleek, appealing modern tech. Its kind of a nouveau dive bar, if that can be said in a complimentary way. The Duluth region, like much of the US, has seen a boom in craft beer. 7 West doesn't make beer, but they have a fine selection of the area's brews among the 40 on tap. If sampling local craft beer is something you look forward to when travelling, 7 West should be your first stop when visiting Duluth. The place is an easy walk up Lake Ave. and a few doors to the left on Superior St., downtown Duluth's main drag, for those of you staying at Canal Park hotels. Duluth is a lousy restaurant town, and foodwise 7 West is just a burger joint- a place to fill up with ballast in other words. Beer though is the star here. An American strong ale from the tiny Castle Danger brewery sampled on a recent visit is the best beer I've had in months. I'm in Duluth once a month with things to do, and once the working day is over 7 West has become my go-to spot to unwind. I wish I got to Duluth more often.

“good beers”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The beer list is very extensive with plenty of small brewery ipas, ales, stouts and porters. Plus you can do flights of beers, best way to try 4 different brews.
We had a buffalo bleu burger, philly and both with fries. The philly was really good. The buffalo bleu burger was not good as the "crumbles" were a blue cheese salad dressing, too vinegary. The fries were not crispy a bit too soft for me.
Very clean and friendly staff. Will be back.

“Great burgers and a lot of taps”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I cannot say anything more then the title of this review. 7 West Tap House is a beer connoisseurs dream come true. They have tasty burgers I recommend the inferno jalapeño burger (it is my favorite). It is an informal place to go with family, friends, and even couples (not a date place). Enjoy the beer and burgers.

“Great spot for beers”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Loved having an option to do the samplers. They also had a great deal if you signed up for their text notification system. Check it out if you are a beer fan.

“Catch a flight”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Stopped in for a drink, but ordered a flight of 4 micro-brews. They have a fair selection and you get 4, 5 ounce samples that you select from their list. Didn't try the food. The place seems to be staffed by giggly college students. Decor is plain.
