Free beer, catered treats at Duluth store

Just when we thought all the hoopla about downtown Duluth’s holiday pop-up stores had calmed down, this comes our way.

Beer samples.

Yeah, that got our attention. And Eh? thought it might get yours.

The Frost River Trading pop-up store at 305 W. Superior St. will be joined by several other Lincoln Park businesses from 4-7 p.m. today.

There’ll be samples from Bent Paddle Brewing Co., catered treats from the Duluth Grill and boat building demonstrations. All happening amid Frost River’s offerings of waxed canvas packs and bags, and other hardy, American-made items. And of course, they’d love it if you do a little shopping while there.
