It appears that some brewing neighbors to the north will migrate a little further south this winter.


, the uber-popular restaurant and brewhouse in downtown Duluth, is planning a new outpost in the former Trocadero's nightclub space on Third Avenue North, just down the street from

The brewhouse's owners Tim Nelson and Rod Raymond plan to make use of the stage and performance space left behind by the former residents and will feature live entertainment in addition to food and house-brewed ales.

The owners also say they plan to take advantage of the already well-established brewery scene and reserve some of their taps for beers from Fulton, Summit, and Surly.

Food-wise, they'll be bringing over favorites from their other restaurant like reubens, fish tacos, and their famous wild rice burger. New items will include some pizzas and macaroni dishes -- an homage to the part of their historic building that once produced Creamette pasta.

The name of the new venue and eatery is still undecided, but they're hoping to finish renovation and open this winter.
