Fargo brewery unveils its first beer: Wood Chipper

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A new brewing company in Fargo has rolled out its first beer: Wood Chipper.

The Fargo Beer Co. is believed to be the first locally produced beer enterprise in six years. The group plans to have four craft beers on the market within a year.

The beer is being brewed in Wisconsin until the group finds a spot for their own brewery. The first shipment of 85 kegs arrived last week.

The name of the initial offering is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the famous prop in the movie Fargo. The beer is currently being offered in about a dozen establishments in the area.

A launch party for the company was scheduled Wednesday at a downtown Fargo bar.
