Drumconrath Brewing is back with gofundme

Drumconrath Brewing hopes to be the next brewery in Fargo and they have started a gofundme to help work out some of the startup costs for the brewery.  There are lots of great rewards again. Check it out and help them get up and running!


North Dakota is known for being remote, cold, and having the highest per capita beer consumption in the nation.  What North Dakota isn’t known for is great beer.  North Dakota’s 2013 Legislative Assembly worked to try and change that, by overturning an outdated law that all but forbade the production of beer in the state.  With new laws in place, a handful of small breweries have opened up in North Dakota trying to bring great beer to our craft beer impoverished state.  The Drumconrath Brewing Company wants to joint the battle against macro-brewed, average beer, but what we need is your help.  Funds will help us buy equipment large enough to satisfy our immediate needs and allow us the capacity to grow with our community! Funds will also help us secure our location and begin the build-out process.  Lets not leave this great state out in the cold!  North Dakota deserves great beer!

Drumconrath Brewing benefits from its small scale in that it can regularly rotate beer styles on tap, keeping the beer menu fresh and exciting! There will also be a few staple beers that are almost always on tap. The brewery will also benefit from having FOUR NITRO TAPS!!! Why? Because nitro is fun!

     Drumconrath Irish Dry Stout
     Up the Drums Red Ale

     Folk Fridays – Local folk, bluegrass, and traditional musicians will be showcased, bringing that rural pub feel to America’s heartland.
     Local art – We will regularly showcase art and exhibitions from local artists, giving them another venue to engage the community and bring more of the community to our taproom!
     Games, puzzles and more! A wide variety of board and card games, puzzles and special game events…because come on, who doesn’t like a good old fashioned skipbo! tournament?

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.
