The thing about great craft beer is ... there's just so much of it. Not just from Minnesota breweries, but from Colorado and beyond.

At 7 West Taphouse, not only do they have a large selection (as they say on their website, "everything from classic American lagers to small-batch IPAs"), but their staff are truly experts in their ever rotating selection.

Have a taste for something sour? They'll have a great recommendation. Want something adventurous — but not too adventurous? They can help you out. It's no wonder they recently were voted Best of the Best for tap beer selection in the Twin Ports. (They have some fun hard seltzers, too, like grapefruit hard seltzer and lemon lime hard seltzer.)

If you haven't been to one of 7 West Taphouse's three Duluth locations, you should also know they have a great menu, featuring both a Burger of the Month and a Taco of the Month. They are locally owned and operated (support local business!) and offer take out and delivery, as well as the dine-in experience. If you're thinking ahead for the holidays, you should remember they offer gift cards, too.

We're partial to their 2/$22 Tuesdays special, too! Get two burgers, two draft beers and two sides of fresh cut fries or fresh cut chips for $22. And by all means, tell them we sent you!
