Prairie Rose Meadery is coming to Fargo

Prairie Rose Meadery is coming to South Fargo and hopes to be open later this year.  Mead is a fermented honey wine that may be flavored with fruits or spices and has been around for thousands of years.  It’s taste, aroma and palate sensation is like no other beverage and really needs to be experienced to be appreciated.

2014 is looking to be a breakout year for craft beverages in the Fargo/Moorhead area.  With breweries, a distillery and now a meadery all in development, consumers will have a much wider choice  of locally made beverages available to fit all sorts of tastes.

Prairie Rose Meadery is the dream of Susan and Bob Ruud who are experienced and award winning homebrewers who last year won the gold medal in the traditional mead category at the National Homebrew Competition.  They also won the gold medal in the same category back in 2006.

They plan to produce Traditional Mead (honey only), Melomel (Fruit Mead) and Metheglin (Spiced Mead) using ingredients mostly from North Dakota.  Their mead will be available in bottles and by the glass at a tasting room at the meadery which will be located off of 32nd Avenue South in Fargo, west of I-29.

For more information and updates on their progress, you can go to their website: prairierosemeadery.com


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.
