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 10 (that’s right, TEN) brewery locations below.
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.
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.
The most recent addition to the craft beer scene in Moorhead, Swing Barrel is located right in Downtown Moorhead in a newly renovated, historic building. Not only do they have an awesome sidewalk patio, but the inside has beautiful wood accents and friendly bar tenders.
There are lagers and a variety of ales throughout the menu. Check their Facebook Page for what’s on tap.

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.
