From Coteau des Prairies:

On September 12th, 2017, we are hosting Junkyard Brewing Company at our Fall Beer Dinner! Junkyard Co-founder Aaron Juhnke will be introducing his beers. Returning Guest Chef Steven Schulz from The Toasted Frog is planning a five course pairing menu, which will be amazing, as usual!

Junkyard (Moorhead, MN) is a taproom-based brewery, focused on brewing experimental styles for a constantly rotating tap menu. Junkyard Brewing Co. started operations in 2013, and since then has expanded to their current location where they opened their taproom and have been steadily increasing capacity. Junkyard has developed a loyal following of avid craft beer lovers in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

We have been talking with Aaron about doing a beer dinner at the lodge for over 3 years. They have been very busy just making enough beer to keep up with the demand of their thirsty fans. We feel very fortunate they will be reserving 5 kegs of their best brews to feature at our Fall Beer Dinner!

In addition, local author Alicia Underlee Nelson will be holding a book signing event and speaking during the dinner. Alicia’s new book North Dakota Beer: A Heady History will be available beginning July 17th, 2017. We will have copies for sale at the event.

About North Dakota Beer: A Heady History. Before North Dakota obtained statehood and entered the Union as a dry state, the region’s commercial beer industry thrived. A lengthy era of temperance forced locals to find clever ways to get a beer, such as crossing the Montana and Minnesota borders for a pint, smuggling beer over the rails and brewing at home. After Prohibition, the state’s farmers became national leaders in malting barley production, serving the biggest brewers in the world. However, local breweries struggled until 1995, when the first wave of brewpubs arrived on the scene. A craft brewing renaissance this century led to an explosion of more than a dozen craft breweries and brewpubs in less than a decade. Alicia Underlee Nelson recounts North Dakota’s journey from a dry state to a booming craft beer hub.

Also, we will be harvesting fresh hops at the Breker farm on the day of the event. We are working on coming up with a great use for them at the dinner.

Stay tuned for more details!
