Tuesday, May 1st is the grand opening celebration for Burrito Union in Duluth. They’ll have happy hour pricing on beer all day, records spinning and $1 from each burrito (as well as non-perishable food donations) goes to the Union Gospel Mission. Beer? By Fitger’s, of course.
[Edit: I’m a dolt. I wrote “Fitger’s Complex” earlier, but Burrito Union is located at 1332 E. 4th St., whereas the Brewhouse is located at 600 E. Superior St. Doh.]
Went to Fitgers… no Burrito Union there.
Sorry. I’m an idiot. I didn’t pay attention to the address. Burrito Union may have Brewhouse beer, but it isn’t in the Fitger’s complex.
Burrito Union has been open since at least March. It was open when I was up there for the Gitchee Gumee Brewfest on March 31st. They serve up a couple of the Fitger’s brews. Not sure how they get away with it since brewpubs can’t sell their beer for sale in MN.
The law was changed last year to allow places with an interest in another company to sell their beer at that location. There’s probably a more eloquent way of putting this, but essentially it means that Fitger’s Brewhouse and Burrito Union are owned by the same person or organization. Blah. Too many beers. In any case, they’re legal.
Aaaah, I thought that was the law that they flip-flopped on thanks to our friends at Lake Superior. My mistake, wrong law.
