Fargo Beer Co. gets a Fargo brewery location

The Fargo Beer Company has signed a lease for a brewery location at 610 N University Drive in Fargo.  This building formerly housed Great Plains Plastic Molding and Rehab Systems and is at the corner of University Drive and 7th Avenue North.  It house their production brewery when the equipment they ordered (link) arrives alone with a tap room with room to expand.

The lease is will officially begin on March 10th but their landlord is currently cutting the floor to install floor drains, painting and other maintenance to get the building ready.

The Fargo City Commission accepted and filed an ordinance on Dec. 10 that would establish a new kind of brewing license. The class “Y” brewing license was approved on Jan. 7.  Fargo Beer will be the first brewery to receive the license.

The company‘s legal entity name is Fargo Brewing Co. LLC, but they have been doing business as the Fargo Beer Co. while they have been having their beer brewed for them at the Sand Creek Brewery in Black River Falls, Wisconsin.  Once they start brewing themselves in Fargo by the Summer , they plan to change their name to the Fargo Brewery.

Fargo Beer Co. moves closer to actually brewing in Fargo

The Fargo Forum had another article about the Fargo Beer Co. in Saturday’s Business section.


Fargo Beer Co. is inching closer to being able to brew where it sells, in the city it’s named for.

The Fargo City Commission accepted and filed an ordinance on Dec. 10 that establishes a new kind of brewing license in Fargo.

The license will allow Fargo Beer Co. to move forward in acquiring land to build a brewery.

The beer company now brews its bubbly at Sand Creek Brewery in Black River Falls, Wis.

The product is then shipped into this area and sold at taverns across Fargo-Moorhead.

Aaron Hill, Chris Anderson, John Anderson and Jared Hardy are partners in the beer company named after North Dakota’s largest city.

Hill said the city’s move is positive, but the partnership was expecting to close on a land deal in mid-November.

Instead, it was pushed back.

Fargo Beer Co. signed a lease agreement with a group that had yet to sign a purchase agreement on a property for sale. Since the group’s close date was pushed back, Fargo Beer Co.’s lease was also pushed back.

Hill said until the deal is closed, he can’t give any details about where the brewery will be.

He hopes that will be soon.

In the meantime, the license ordinance should push through city channels. At least one more, if not two readings of the license ordinance must be scheduled before it becomes official.

Forum reporter Dave Olson who attended the Dec. 10 meeting, said once the license ordinance does go through, the city will give the first license to Fargo Beer. At that time, the company is expected to become Fargo Brewing.

The license should be available by early January.

More Wood Chipper IPA on the way

Fargo Beer Company posted on facebook earlier this week that they just brewed a batch of Wood Chipper IPA and it should be here in time for the holidays, and bottles will be available.

Beer Maker Seeks Fargo Brewery Site

There is an article in today’s Fargo Forum about the Fargo Beer Company looking for a brewery site:

Beer maker seeks Fargo brewery site
FARGO – Fargo Beer Co. has always wanted to add the word “brewery” to its name.

And it soon may get the chance.

The company, which began selling beer in Fargo-Moorhead and elsewhere last year, is in the process of acquiring a site to brew beer in Fargo.
