Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Drekker


Drekker Brewing’s 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 scientist Mark Bjornstad, builder Darin Montplaisir, businessperson Jesse Feigum, and engineer Mason Montplaisir 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 in September 2014. Brewhalla is the home of Viking-themed Drekker Brewing and it’s become so much more than a brewery and taproom. Made up of a food market filled with Fargo’s best and most creative restaurants, shops, and makers, a bumping event center to throw killer parties, and a hotel like no other to truly immerse yourself in the full Drekker experience. Today, Peaks & Pints offers a Drekker experience in a flight we’re calling Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Drekker.

Drekker SMOL – Blue Raz

Smol is Drekker’s new line of fruited sours where they suppress all the dark urges to make things super weird and we just add the perfect amount of fruit to make them not quite so thick but insanely tasty and refreshing. This Smol was blasted with just the right amount of blueberry and raspberry. Now, on to the crazy stuff. …
