Bemidji Brewing moving to a downtown location

The Bemidji Pioneer had an article on May 3rd about Bemidji Brewing moving to their own location in downtown Bemidji.

This new location is at 401 Beltrami Ave, they are currently brewing out of Harmony Co-op’s community kitchen but will move their brewing equipment to this new location.

“In March, the Bemidji City Council finalized new ordinances allowing breweries to apply for licenses to open taprooms and sell large jugs, called growlers, of the beer they brew on site.

Tom Hill, one of the founding members of Bemidji Brewing, said they envision a “beer cafe” atmosphere at the taproom, where customers can have a pint of beer was brewed under the same roof. He added that they’re in an ideal location to attract tourists and festival-goers during summer.

The new location will also allow them to produce more beer and more varieties at once, Hill added. They’ll upgrade from the two small fermenters they have at Harmony to four larger ones at the new location.”

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.
