Back by popular demand, every Tuesday is the Skate & Sip group skate series at Bent Paddle Brewing, and you are invited.

This is a free and  bi-weekly group targeted at inline skaters and quad skaters/roller skaters that get together to have fun, train, trade secrets and learn too if that's where you are with your inline skating. Some of the people that have come have been people that bought their skates that night, .

The first group skate session is on Tuesday, June 5 at 6pm at the Bent Paddle Taproom in Duluth (1832 W Michigan St), where group members will skate for about an hour then rejoin for a free Bent Paddle beer.

Skate & Sip is every other Tuesday at 6pm through the summer leading up to the 23rd Annual NorthShore Inline Marathon on September 15.

“We had an awesome showing of all sorts of skaters last year, from people who haven’t inline skated for years and years, to the Harbor City Roller Dames roller derby team, to elite-level marathon skaters and everyone in between. Nothing is better than a cold Bent Paddle beer after a summer evening blade through the city,” said NorthShore Inline Marathon race director Mike Ward.
