On Saturday Kraus-Anderson, in partnership with COGGS (Cyclists of Gitchi Gumee Shores) and Harbortown Rotary, held a Bike & Brew fundraiser at Ursa Minor Brewing.  

Cyclists could ride down to the brewery anytime during the afternoon to earn a free pint or a drink token.

Ursa Minor was also selling a Pedal Master IPA brew for Kraus-Anderson. A dollar from each crowler sale will go towards helping fun the 2021 bike festival that celebrates Duluth's many miles of bike trails.

"Money raised [Saturday] goes towards hosting the festival next year and putting it on. Ultimately the festival, this would have been it's seventh year, has raised over a quarter million dollars for COGGS and our other beneficiaries. It benefits the community and the local bike scene," said Alec Kadlec, a chairperson for COGGS.
