Beer is here

We’re in the midst of American Craft Beer Week, and a Duluth restaurant is marking it with a Minnesota-centric celebration.

Tycoons Alehouse & Eatery is hosting a meet-and-greet with six Minnesota brewers for craft beer fans from 7-9 p.m. today.

The party moves downstairs to the Rathskeller, where all its tap lines will serve Minnesota beer. And drinkers will be able get their taste buds on beer from Bent Paddle before it opens in Lincoln Park (it opens its tap room at 3 p.m. Thursday).
