Possibly the coolest name for a city and brewery that I've heard of. From the website: "The brewery is situated at Castle Haven Cabins, a small family resort in Castle Danger also run by Clint & Jamie. The land was originally homesteaded by Jamie's great-grandfather in 1902. Her grandfather Marcus Lind built the first cabin in 1933." Down a long dirt road just off HWY 61, this place is easy to miss. Neither phone nor car GPS will not get you there correctly...I speak from experience! Use the directions from the website (if you can get cell service out there, which was iffy for us.) We almost let it go, but eventually managed to find our way out to this interesting site.

Nestled in amongst well-kept cabins along the lake shore, we found the small, red garage/shed where the brewery itself is located. They have no tap room and are a production brewery only, however they have limited open hours for tours, and growler and merch sales. We happened in during the correct time period (mostly because of using up some afternoon with family, so it all worked out great!) The brewery itself houses a 3 barrel brew system that is just a small step up from the stainless system I brew on at home! So cute! I enjoyed being taller than the kettle and the fermenters, it doesn't happen often. They were doing a brisk business, with plenty of locals and tourists popping in for some growlers and shirts. They had 4 taps and were serving samples in small cups so we could try the beers at the brewery. I wasn't convinced this would be the case based on the info from the website, and was glad I had a chance to try them all. I really liked the flagship Danger Ale: called an American strong ale on the website, but what I would call a malty pale ale. They had a cream ale and a hoppy wheat beer on as well that were both respectable. We didn't end up getting any growlers, mainly because we had already gathered a few from other breweries on this trip to Duluth. In lieu of supporting them by buying beer, I'm writing this to get the word out!
