    No word yet on when their first beer will be released or where it will be released to (they are saying perhaps one or two draft accounts only to start with) but it looks like their product will be available relatively soon.

    From the Bemidji Brewing facebook page:

    "After a 10 hour brew day we successfully brewed 2 batches of our first beer, a session-strength pale ale that will be dry hopped with a blend of ahtanum, cascade, and citra."

    Yeah, it sounds like a real locals-only set up there -- two draft locations but no growlers? DONG!

    Which reminds me; these folks will be up and running as a brewpub soon:

    The brewer is one of the most talented guys I've ever met, expect good things from these folks. I've had a dozen different session pales from him before and none have been less than exemplary.

    I went to drill with one of the brewer's friends, everything is going good. I am definitely looking forward to enjoying some more sessional beers from these guys
