Fargo Brewing expands its market to Duluth

Just when we thought we had the craft beer market all locked up here in Duluth area, along comes Fargo Brewing Co. with its craft beers.

Established in 2010, the fast-growing North Dakota brewery is doubling its capacity to expand to Duluth and other Minnesota markets. The Twin Ports market’s love of craft beer and its support of craft breweries is one of the reasons the company is expanding its distribution to Duluth, co-founder Jared Hardy said in a news release.

Its tap beers are now offered at 7 West Tap House, Country Lanes North, Old Chicago and the Canal Park Grizzly’s. Among the liquor stores where its beers are available in cans are Super One Liquor, Mount Royal Bottle Shoppe and Last Chance Liquor — with the brewery promising more to come.

Among the beers available on tap and in cans are Fargo Brewing’s Stone’s Throw Scottish Ale, Iron Horse American Pale Ale and, inspired by the 1996 film “Fargo,” Wood Chipper India Pale Ale. Its Sodbuster Porter and Wind Swept Belgian Witbier also are available on tap, the company said.

The Fargo-based company plans to continue its expansion into other Minnesota markets, including the Twin Cities and southern Minnesota, in upcoming months.
