The co-owners of Fitger's Brewhouse in Duluth have tabled their plans to open a brewpub in Minneapolis, The Downtown Journal reports.
Rod Raymond and Tim Nelson signed a purchase agreement in June to buy a historic North Loop building, however the deal was never closed.
“After looking at the scope of the Minneapolis project along with our new opportunities in Duluth, we decided to circle back and keep the focus local," spokesman Brad Nelson said.
Fitger's was among three Minnesota brewpubs honored at this year’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver last month.
The Business Journal notes Fitger's is the eight-largest brewery in Minnesota based the number of barrels produced.
