DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Duluth makes a lot of beer. But thanks to the "Surly bill" passed a couple of years ago, a new breed of beverage maker is coming to town: the micro distiller. The Surly bill lowered the cost of licensure for distillers from $30,000 per year to just under $3,000 per year, according to Kevin Evans, who plans to start Evans Family Distilling here in July. He said 12 other distillers are getting licensed in the state at the moment, including three in Duluth. Evans will deal in whiskey, and hopes to have a rye and a bourbon available at his distillery and tasting room by spring or summer of 2014.
