Brewery Construction Season

The Summer of 2014 is turning into ‘Brewery Construction Season’ with a new brewery building up, another brewing setting up a new location with a taproom, and the area’s first meadery their production area and tasting room.  For more pictures and updates, check out the Facebook pages for each of these businesses.

Junkyard Brewing – New Brewery with a taproom

Junkyard Brewing is moving from their current location in the back of the Country Cannery at 1320 1st Ave. N. in Moorhead a couple blocks east to a new location with more room to grow the brewery and space for a taproom.  Their new address will bee 1416 1st Ave. N.

Some of the work done so far includes a new water line installed, cutting up the cement floor for drains and the filling the trenches, framing the new brewing area and removing the old garage doors so they can be replaced with new insulated ones with windows.  Junkyard Brewing on Facebook

Prairie Rose Meadery – Building a production area with tasting room

Mead is fermented honey and water that may have some spices or fruit added.  There are not that many meaderies in the United States but we are getting one here in Fargo.  Prairie Rose Meadery is building their production area with a tasting room in the 3100 block of 39th Street South in Fargo.  It took a while to get the lease worked out but construction is finally in progress, again cutting of the floor for drains is needed.  They hope to be open by late summer or early fall.  Prairie Rose Meadery on Facebook


Drekker Brewing – Building the brewery and taproom

Drekker Brewing recently got in a big shipment of stainless steel tanks from their supplier, Portland Kettle Works.  They broke through the brick wall in the back of their location at 630 1st Ave N, Suite 6 in Fargo so they could add a garage door in order to handle large loads like these tanks and all the grain that they will need in the future.   Drekker Brewing on Facebook
