Ursa Minor Brewing had a major debut on September 26, 2018, and it has been a long time coming. Owners Ben Hugus, Mark Hugus and Andrew Scrignoli worked nonstop for over three years to realize their dream of opening a local, craft brewery in Duluth. We spoke with the Ursa Minor team back in April (check out the blog post), when preparations to open the brewery were in full swing. Today, we were just happy to catch a few moments with the guys amid the excitement and chaos of the first few days in business.
