Good Word Brewing and Public House, located in downtown Duluth next to Dreamland BBQ, opened its doors in late November. A long-awaited brew pub from the owners of Decatur-based Brick Store Pub, Good Word – a brew pub where the beer is made in-house – will be a completely different concept from Brick Store (which is a beer bar) and will also have a completely different menu. Owner and brewer Todd DiMatteo says, “I think that every town kind of needs and wants a place that they can all commune, sit and talk, and drink good beer and have great conversations and eat good food uninterrupted by neon signs and televisions.” Check out their winter beer recommendations on page 31!
