Local Breweries

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 10 (that’s right, TEN) brewery locations below.

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.

 Drekker Brewing Company – Downtown

630 1st Ave N, Fargo | 701.540.6808 | drekkerbrewing.com

The only brewery located in Fargo’s Downtown District, this unassuming building hides a high-ceiling, industrial chic interior… and an array of quirky activities.

You can play a classic Midwestern game of bags (or cornhole, as North Dakotans call it), round up a team for a themed trivia night, or join in Viking Yoga on the second Saturday of each month and get your meditation and your first pint in one go.

Monday – Thursday: 4:00pm – 10:00pm
Friday – Saturday: 12:00pm – 12:00am

Drumconrath Brewing Company

349 Knutson St, Mapleton | 701.645.3786 | drumconrathbrewing.com

Just outside of Fargo, Drumconrath 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

Wednesday – Friday: 4:00pm – 10:00pm
Saturday: 12:00pm – 10:00pm

They make more than Irish varieties, so don’t hesitate to make the 8-mile journey out of Fargo.


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 – Friday: 4:00pm – 10:00pm
Saturday: 12:00pm – 10:00pm
Sunday: 12:00pm – 6:00pm

Fargo Brewing Company (see above) has set up a separate ale house location to meet the growing demand for their craft beers.

The refined atmosphere is completely different from the warehouse, and focuses on food and beer pairings (with an emphasis on great beer).

Monday – Thursday: 11:00am – 10:00pm
Friday – Saturday: 11:00am – 12:00am
Sunday: 11:00am – 10:00pm

Flatland Brewery

3140 Bluestem Dr, West Fargo | 701.353.1178 | flatlandbrewery.com

The first public brewhouse in West Fargo (another of Fargo’s sister cities), Flatland specializes in small batch craft beers and scratch-made sodas.

So, yum.

Trivia nights, beer specials, and live music all grace the events calendar at Flatland.

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.

Kilstone Brewing Company

764 34th St N, Fargo | 701.893.5224 | *New downtown Fargo location coming in 2019!

Finding Kilstone feels like stumbling on a well-kept secret – but you’ll want to tell everyone.

Like a speakeasy of old, Kilstone is worth seeking. Tucked away in an industrial park, you’ll feel like you’re in the wrong place, but don’t worry… a charming brewery awaits.

Soon, they’ll be moving downtown to a second-story location, so you’ll get brews with a view.

The taproom is smaller than some, but a patio opens when the weather is nice and family-style Friday game nights add to the intimate ambiance.

Tap Room Hours

Wednesday – Friday: 3:00pm – 10:00pm
Saturday: 1:00pm – 10:00pm

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.
