Come meet the author of 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.

In this class BJPC certified beer judge Dr. Ellen Brisch will take you through the ins and outs of aging beer, such as which styles age best, how beer changes as it ages, and how to go about aging beer yourself. Along the way you will get to taste some of the best of the cellared beer selection from Bridgeview Liquors, and have the chance to buy some vintage beauties as well. And tickets are still just 10$!
