Great Lakes Brewing Co. announced Thursday that it's moving into the Duluth, Minn., market in October. The Cleveland brewery teamed up with Bernick’s Beverages & Vending. Great Lakes already is available in St. Paul and Minneapolis. The brewery is now distributed in 13 states and Washington, D.C.
“Many breweries choose a strategy of being a mile wide and an inch deep," brewery co-owner Pat Conway said in a prepared statement. "We prefer to penetrate deeper into existing markets. Entering Duluth is an extension of that idea.”
