Brewing or Brewery? A Guide to Proper Beer Nouns in Duluth

With all the breweries popping up in Duluth and surrounding communities, it’s hard to keep the names straight. In casual conversation, no one really cares if you say “Earth Rider Brewery” or “Earth Rider Brewing,” but if you are one of the last copy editors in town who still has a job, for example, you might consider it important to distinguish which brew-suffix goes with each entity.

It’s not easy to keep track of which breweries are branded with which terms, although the majority seem to prefer “brewing” to “brewery.” (Anyone who can come up with a good memory device in the comments to this post is champion of the internet for a day.)
