Bird Dog Brewing is making beer

MainStreetBirdDogBird Dog Brewing of Mandan, ND completed their licensing and construction in December of 2014 and their beer went on tap at Main Street Drive Thru Liqour  at 12:01 AM on January 1st 2015.

Their first beers were a Bitter Stout and a Cider Ale:
“The stout is a 120 min stout with great malt flavor to add to the bitter approx. 120 ibu stout.”
“Then we have a crisp tart apple cider with a light malt, cinnamon, and clove note in the finish.”

Their next beer will be Brandy’s strawberry blonde.

They have a 3.5 bbl system that can expand to 7 bbl fairly easily.
Iniatially Bird Dog Brewing beers will be served exclusively at Main Street Drive Thru Liquor (1005 East Main Street, Mandan, ND) with plans to open distribution beyond that location once all the bugs are ironed out and they ramp up production.

Stop back for more information about Bird Dog Brewing coming 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.
