The Fargo Beer Company has signed a lease for a brewery location at 610 N University Drive in Fargo.  This building formerly housed Great Plains Plastic Molding and Rehab Systems and is at the corner of University Drive and 7th Avenue North.  It house their production brewery when the equipment they ordered (link) arrives alone with a tap room with room to expand.

The lease is will officially begin on March 10th but their landlord is currently cutting the floor to install floor drains, painting and other maintenance to get the building ready.

The Fargo City Commission accepted and filed an ordinance on Dec. 10 that would establish a new kind of brewing license. The class “Y” brewing license was approved on Jan. 7.  Fargo Beer will be the first brewery to receive the license.

The company‘s legal entity name is Fargo Brewing Co. LLC, but they have been doing business as the Fargo Beer Co. while they have been having their beer brewed for them at the Sand Creek Brewery in Black River Falls, Wisconsin.  Once they start brewing themselves in Fargo by the Summer , they plan to change their name to the Fargo Brewery.

About Dean

I drank my share of pale lagers back in college in the 80's but I always wanted to try more, often drinking the 'dark' versions of beer as that was the only interesting thing on tap. I got into homebrewing in the early 90's meeting a lot of great people and then really started learning about beer and how to judge it. Then into the 00's I started branching out with beer and started to deal with beer education and paring beer with food which I did with some restaurants, even beating out wine in a beer vs. wine dinner. I don't try and push beer on people but if they ask questions and really want to listen, I can talk for hours about the subject. Now we come to today, and beer scene in the Fargo / Moorhead area and North Dakota is starting to boom. FMBeer was created with the help of MNBeer.com so people in the F/M area have a single place where they can find out more about good beer, from a calendar of events to lists of local breweries and bars. FMBeer is also a place to learn more about craft beer for those just branching out and a resource to come back to.
