Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Fitger's Brewhouse is gearing up to represent Duluth in one of the largest and oldest brew fests in America.

The popular Duluth brewery will be the only Minnesota brewery to take part in the Oregon Brew Fest next week.

The company will showcase the Hoppelujah IPA, one of the most popular beers in the Northland.

Master Brewer Dave Hoops says the Hoppelujah is a one-of-a-kind brew that will have the west coast buzzing.

"It is the quintessential North Shore style IPA and when I say North Shore style, it's the style I brought here from San Francisco, very dry, unfiltered, Lake Superior water, hopp centric this is the beast of them all," said , Dave Hoops, Fitger's Brewhouse Master Brewer.

The Hoppelujah will be one of only 88 beers at this year's festival.

You can find the beer on tap right now at Tycoon's in Duluth.
