The brewery building began its life in 1880 in the earliest days of Fargo, nine years before North Dakota would become a state. It was built by Northern Pacific as a locomotive repair building and foundry, and it’s the last standing piece of what was a large railroad facility that included a 28 car roundhouse and many other buildings.
The building went through many uses and owners over the years but fell into disrepair after sitting mostly empty for several decades. Even still, its soul and character were undeniable and it was where we first dreamed of starting the brewery. Through dumb luck, hard work, and amazing friends we eventually got the opportunity to resurrect this building and bring this dream to life.
Brewhalla is the home of Drekker Brewing Company and it’s become so much more than a brewery & taproom. It’s a good times factory. We’re building out a dream expansion that brings together the most amazing experiences we could conjure. Made up of a food market filled with Fargo’s best & most creative restaurants, shops & makers, a bumping event center to throw killer parties, and a hotel like no other to truly immerse yourself in the full Drekker Experience.
