Duluth homebrewers, start your engines!
Duluth Homebrew Supply opened its doors July 16 in the Fitger’s complex. Owners and siblings Katie Hagglund and Kelly Katoski opened the store with hopes of bringing to life a vision of people gathering around a shared passion.
“We started Duluth Homebrew Supply not just because we love to make great beer,” said Hagglund. “We did it because we love watching the spark of individual interest turn into something bigger—the building of community.”
The store has a wide selection of grain and a mill for customers to use, as well as equipment for homebrewing, wine and cider making, and kegging. For now, they’re offering Brewer’s Best recipe kits, but are in the process of collaborating with several of Duluth’s breweries to create clone kits of their beers. They’ll also offer classes for varying levels of experience.
Hagglund said their opening day was exciting and that they’ve received a lot of support from the community. She’s hoping to have a dialogue with the store’s customers to make sure they’re stocking what people need to enhance their homebrewing experience.
Store hours are Monday–Saturday, 10am–9pm and Sunday 11am–5pm.
