I received a nice note from Andy Sakrison regarding his new project, BoatHouse Brewhouse & Restaurant, a new startup brewpub in Ely, Minnesota. Andy used to work in the brewery at Fitger’s Brewhouse in Duluth. I had heard a bit about the project from some other folks involved about a year ago, so it’s cool to see this come into fruition.
They’re up and running and legal to brew. Just don’t show up looking for beer quite yet, give them a couple of weeks to get the taps flowing.
They’ve also got a full bar with a number of micros in the bottle to choose from right now as well as taps of Summit EPA, Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale and Lindeman’s Framboise. Live music on the weekends as well. I look forward to checking it out once the house beer starts flowing.
