Craft beer enthusiasts got an insider's peak on the booming local industry on Sunday as brewery owners from the Twin Ports shared how they started their businesses and what they expect for the future.

The event was put together by The Duluth Experience, a brewery tour company. The company's founders hoped the discussion would offer a unique insight on the popular industry.

“That's the idea is educate, have a good time, and let the people who own the breweries kind of describe it too us. So that's the idea behind these events is to educate and keep that buzz going,” Co-founder Dave Grandmaison said.

This was just the first of four scheduled discussions. Grandmaison said future talks will describe how the craft beer industry is spurring spin-off businesses, like marketing companies, and even supplying local ranchers with grain feed for cattle.

The next roundtable is set for April 13.
