We brew because we must

At Canal Park Brewery, we are inspired by the unruly spirit that occupies the North and South shore of Lake Superior. We brew beer and serve food to satisfy the adventurers who buzz up and down the fresh coast. Our goal is to build brew culture in our hometown of Duluth, MN and create curiosity in craft beer styles by brewing consistently epic batches.


We’ve got some great Northcoaster gear at our retail shop. Come check out the t-shirts, hoodies, pint glasses, hats and so much more! We also partner with some great local artisans to bring you some extra special North Shore pieces.

If you’re looking for a holiday gift, don’t fret! We can send it to you. Just call us at 218-464-4790.



Order a create-your-own-flight to sample some of our current on tap brews and then take home your favorite. Any brew that’s on tap can be bottled up and ready for you to continue enjoying at home. Sales are open during business hours every day!

Ingredients from where you are

We are committed to the people who work in our community. These are just some of the local companies that we partner with.

Breiss Malt

We care a whole heck of a lot about sourcing and brewing with the best local ingredients that we can possible dig up. We are lucky that Briess is right in our backyard; the Chilton, WI malter has been making the industry’s best malts and brewing ingredients for over 130 years.

Brule River Hill Top Hops

Hop, lock and drop it. This small scale hop yard in mighty Brule, WI is hard-core and dedicated to growing high quality hops for our brewing, and your tasting, pleasure. We have really enjoyed getting to know them and look forward to a life long partnership.

Frost River

If we were going to have growler bags, we knew they had to be locally manufactured. That thought led us to the door step of Frost River, a soft goods manufacturer right here in Duluth. Their lead designer and craftsman went as far as to design a less expensive, tough as nails, nylon option for campus life here on the Northcoast.

Meet the Brew Posse

Meet our craft beer champions. This diverse group of diabolical beer makers (and drinkers) put their heart and soul into creating a place for people to gather, drink beer, and have a really good time.
