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.
