Notes: Junkyard Brewing Company is a "nanobrewery" and Taproom in Moorhead, Minnesota. We incorporated in 2012 and got our beer manufacturer's license from MN in the spring of 2013. Our Taproom is currently open every night of the week, and we offer periodic 750ml "crowler" can releases, and Growler fills every Sunday. We also distribute a small quantity of kegs to select accounts,

People have come to know us for our focus on brewing experimental styles, and for constantly rotating our beer offerings at the taproom and for off-sale.

I didn't have time at my visit to have a drink in house, but purchased several crawlers to take home.

They had, I think, 12 beers on tap. They have 2 bars, the original and in the expansion. They do sell crawlers to go. They do have swag for sale.

The staff was totally friendly at the crawler release, and it was a well run operation. I hope the next time I do get the time to enjoy a beer at the brewery.

Today, junkyard stands as my favorite brewery in the Fargo-Moorhead area, and my go-to for a night out. From their often experimental beer selection, they produce some of my favorite beers that I've ever had. Not to mention that just about every night, you can catch live music from local bands and artists. 100% worth the visit!

Had the pleasure of stopping in here at the recommendation of some locals during a road trip. Good beer, good people and good times. What more could you ask for?

Fantastic microbrewery in Moorhead, MN. Great selection of beers, friendly staff, and lively atmosphere. Frequently live music, food trucks, and enjoyable crowd.

Located in NE Moorhead, MN. The neighborhood is unassuming, not dangerous but definitely blue color. Lots of nearby parking. Picnic table seating outside, with church pew, wood picnic table, and tractor seat seating inside. Rotating food truck selection parks outside. Live music most evenings, inside stage. Crowler cans available in cooler for sale, growler fills on Sunday. Swag, t-shirts, glassware, caps and hats for sale. Non-alcoholic options available. Board games and self served fresh popcorn available. Large boards display what is available for beers and other, with tastings available before purchase. Staff is helpful and knowledgeable, and really serves the community. Very inviting to stop by and try the beers of interest.

Great beer. Great service. You would drive right by this place and not know it. That would be a mistake. I had two beers at Junkyard, and they might have been two of the best beers I've ever had. If you are a fan of great beer and are in the area, you must stop here!

This is easily the best brewery in the Fargo-Moorhead area. The only negative on Junkyard is their capacity and availability of some of their beers. I think this is more of a result of their popularity than their "planning". Once they moved to the new location, I think business has been much better than expected. The vibe is absolutely fantastic, especially for the area. I've been to many of the "hip" breweries in NE Mpls and this place would be a top choice even there. The staff is always extremely friendly, you can tell they are living their dream. With that said, I've never had a bad brew here, so don't worry about the rotating availability. There is even a great little food truck parked outside. The live music is also a plus for me, even if it's not in my taste, it just adds to the vibe.

If you are coming through the area, do NOT miss this place.

In an old roadside filling station the microbrew revolution is alive and kicking, and on this beautiful July night the bay doors are open and the pallet lawn chairs are full. Pretty cool place to hang out and watch the traffic roll by while drinking a couple of pretty decent IPA's. Yeah, this place was worthy stop.
