Fargo loves beer… the craftier the better.

Locals play games surrounding it, put strange things in it, and help hold down North Dakota’s #3 position on the list of states that drink the most beer. Fargoans are also huge supporters of drinking local, and we have the breweries to prove it.

So without further ado, find our 7 (that’s right, SEVEN) brewery locations below.


Drekker Brewing Company – Brewhalla

1666 1st Ave N, Fargo | 701.532.60506 | drekkerbrewing.com

Located just outside of Downtown Fargo, Drekker Brewing Company crafts beer for the Viking in all of us, in a large hall fitting the Norse-heaven it’s named after.


Monday – Thursday: 4 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday – Saturday: 12 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Sunday: 12 p.m. – 8 p.m.


Like most craft breweries, Drekker has tried its hand at multiple styles and varieties of beer, and has a rotating selection for every season.

DCR Brewing Company

630 1st Ave N, Suite 6, Fargo | 701.645.3786 | drumconrathbrewing.com

In the heart of Downtown Fargo, DCR Brewing adds an ‘Irish flair’ to its brews – a nod to the head brewer’s ancestry.

What started as a love for home-brewing has grown into an 8-beer tap list amidst a fun atmosphere of live music, food trucks, and trivia nights.

Tap Room Hours

Monday – Thursday: 4 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday: 4 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Saturday: 12 p.m. – 12 p.m.


They make more than Irish varieties, so don’t hesitate to stop by when you’re strolling through Downtown.

Fargo Brewing Company

610 N University Dr, Fargo | 701.478.2337 | fargobrewing.com

The very first brewery to crop up in the Red River Valley, the taproom will surprise you.

The building looks like an old warehouse, and the taproom looks like a production floor (probably because it is the production floor).

Sip beers that are seemingly right out of the tank, surrounded by waiting-to-be-filled cans stacked to the ceiling. Couches, board games, a rotating schedule of food trucks, and a house dog make you feel like you’re one of the family.

Events-wise, you can also join Yoga on Tap every third Friday of the month at 5:30pm to start your weekend with a workout and a beer, or stop in on a Wednesday for trivia night.

Tap Room Hours

Monday – Saturday: 12 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Sunday: 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.


They’ve got tap lists of the year-round variety, as well as their limited releases.

Icewind Brewing Company

349 Knutson St, Unit B, Mapleton, ND | 701.203.3579 | facebook.com/icewindbrews

Satisfying Mapleton’s need for a brewery, Icewind serves up a variety of easy to drink sours, wheat beers, and IPAs.

Located right outside of West Fargo, Icewind has a large patio that often has food trucks to compliment their awesome beers and great comradery.

Tap Room Hours

Tuesday – Thursday: 4 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday – Saturday: 2 p.m. – 11 p.m.

1416 1st Ave N, Moorhead | 701.936.5545 | junkyardbeer.com

The only brewery in Fargo’s sister city, Moorhead, Junkyard’s 11 taps rotate weekly.

Live music plays every night in the taproom, the largest outdoor patio of any Fargo brewery lets you sip in the sunshine, and they welcome dogs, kids, and food trucks.

Events, like the taps, are also constantly rotating, with Beer & Hymn nights, Stargazing, and even a Farmer’s Market.

Tap Room Hours

Monday – Saturday: 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Pixeled Brewing Company

Pixeled doubles as the city’s first-ever arcade! More than 50 arcade games line the walls from classic games like Frogger, Space Invaders, and Ms. Pacman, to the newest kid on the block, Killer Queen. See a full list of arcade games on their website.

Tap Room Hours

Cheers To Us

While we're usually pretty humble, we must admit: When it comes to drinking, we are pretty darn good at it. Not so many years ago, the only craft beer produced in the Fargo-Moorhead area was brewed in a garage. Now, the area has seven full-fledged breweries.
