What is better than enjoying a tasty malt with a view of Lake Superior? Nothing!

Portland Malt Shoppe, located right on the shores of Lake Superior, is where you can do just that. The spot is a seasonal favorite for locals and tourists alike. The best part about the shop is that when it opens for the season, you know nicer weather is right around the corner.

It always closes for the winter season and opens again in the spring, just in time for the summer. So when does it open for the 2021 season? The answer is now!

I was driving by last night (April 22nd) and noticed that the line to get a malt was almost into the street! I hopped on their website shortly after that to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me and saw that Thursday was their opening day for the season. Exciting!

As of now through May 7th, the malt shop will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. From there, hours will become longer as we head into the summer season. Their website also states that they will be closing sometime in early to mid-October. You better get your malts while you can!

Their menu includes not only malts but also floats, shakes, sundaes, ice cream and cones. Flavors range from mint chocolate chip to cookies and cream and everything in between. You can take a look at their menu here.

The Portland Malt Shoppe is located at 716 East Superior Street in Duluth. Happy spring!
