Drumconrath Brewing is coming to Fargo with a Kickstarter

Drumconrath Brewing Company is planning to be the next brewery to open in the Fargo/Moorhead area in the Fall of 2015.

Press Release May 21st:

Fargo, North Dakota, May 22, 2015: Another brewery coming to Fargo. The Drumconrath Brewing Company is planning on opening its doors fall 2015. Named for a small village in Co Meath, Ireland, the brewery’s taproom will be modeled after a rural Irish pub. The brewery will showcase a number of Irish, American, Scottish, and English brews. The upstart hasn’t nailed down an exact location, but is actively looking for the right spot. Drumconrath Brewing is launching its Kickstarter Campaign today. “I’m hoping the community can help get this dream to reality,” says proprietor Sam Corr, “Because that’s what pubs are really about in Ireland, bringing the community together. Community sports, community arts, community in general…all around a good pint.” Drumconrath Brewing can be found on facebook at www.facebook.com/drumconrathbrewing and on twitter @drumconrathbeer
