The Best Breweries in North Dakota!

Craft beer has quickly become one of the hottest industries in the country, and North Dakota is no exception! Small, intimate breweries are popping up all over the state, giving patrons the opportunity to indulge in unique and imaginative flavor combinations. If you visit North Dakota, be sure to stop by one of the following great breweries.

Fargo Brewing, Fargo, ND

Open since 2013 as the brainchild of four local beer lovers. Their inaugural brew was the Wood Chipper, an Indian pale ale that is still a local favorite. Other signature brews include the Stone’s Throw (a Scottish ale), the Iron Horse (a pale ale), and the Sodbuster (porter). In addition to Fargo Brewing’s taproom, their signature beers can be found all over the F-M metro area.

Drekker Brewing Company, Fargo, ND

Another brewery started by locals, Drekker Brewing Company has quickly made a name for itself in the Fargo beer scene. With Viking-inspired signature brews like The Ryesistance (rye saison), the Techno Viking (Berliner weisse), and Igor’s Horn (black IPA), Drekker is a local favorite.

Laughing Sun Brewery, Bismarck, ND

Established in the 2012 in the historic Laskin Building in downtown Bismarck, is a mixture of beer and community. Work of local artists adorn the walls and the stage is open to more than just music. On any given night, you can hear local musicians, poets, and writers share their musings. The star of the show is the beer, however. Try the Feast Like a Sultan IPA or the Whippin’ Post Pale Ale and you’ll quickly understand why Laughing Sun is so popular.

Souris River Brewing Company, Minot, ND

Souris River Brewing is Minot’s first brewery. Its focus on exceptional beer and made-from-scratch food has made the establishment impossible to imitate. With beers like the Wicked River Weizenbock (a wheat beer), the Bakken Brown Ale (a nod to the area’s oil fields), and the Trainwreck Tripel IPA (with the highest percentage of alcohol on the menu), it appears that Souris River Brewing will be the flagship of the industry for many years to come.

Rhombus Guys Brewing Co., Grand Forks, ND

Already known for its amazing pizza, Rhombus Guys is taking the brewing industry by storm as well. Signature drinks include Doc’s Orders (an unfiltered American wheat beer), the Invincible (an American pale ale), the Freak Show (and English style strong ale), and Into the Darkness (a brown porter).
