FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The largest craft brewing operation in North Dakota has begun making its own beer.
The Fargo Brewing Co. has gone out of state to make its beer for the last two years while its four founders — all Fargo natives — turned a warehouse into a brewery.
The first batch of beer was brewed in Fargo on Tuesday. It should be ready to drink in three weeks.
The beer is being sold primarily in eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota, but there are plans to expand to Sioux Falls, S.D., Duluth, Minn., and the Twin Cities area.
The company's first product was the Wood Chipper IPA. It also makes a Scottish ale, porter, summer wheat and Octoberfest.
The facility's tasting room is expected to open in the next few months.
