Junkyard Brewing Company’s new taproom is now open

Junkyard Brewing Company’s new taproom at 1416 1st Ave N in Moorhead is now open.  Normal hours have shifted a bit as they get a feel for the taproom but are currently 4:00PM-9:00PM Tuesday-Thursday, 4:00PM to midnight on Fridays and noon to midnight on Saturdays.

The Juhnke brothers built out this new taproom and brewery a block or so east of their original location and did most of the work themselves using lots of reclaimed wood, old church pews, metal tractor seats and much more to keep their Junkyard theme.  The taproom as 10 taps featuring their own brews.  Most beer will be $5 for a pint and $3 for a half-pint.  Stronger beers are available at $4 for a half-pint.

They won’t be able to offer our Growlers until they determine if they can keep up with the amount of beer in the taproom, or until they build their new 7 barrel (14 kegs) brewing system.

They have moved their old brewery to the new location and are brewing there.  The Kickstarter they did to fund larger fermentation tanks was successful and they will be purchasing the new tank(s) and working on upgrading their system so they can brew larger batches soon.




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.
