The weather may be cooling off a bit, but these foods and drinks are ready to warm you up as winter approaches.
Drumconrath Draught – Irish Dry Stout
For the fans of darker, heartier brews, this Irish Dry Stout is sure to please. With heavy notes of coffee-like barley and a light hop character, it can even convert those who stray away from darker beers. Drumconrath puts this one on Nitro, leaving it less carbonated but creamier and smoother to the taste. Make sure to find Drumconrath at their new location Downtown and follow them on social media as they welcome in live music and host other events.
630 1st Ave N, Ste 6
This sleek and stylish fried chicken joint is new to the Fargo-Moorhead area. While they offer a unique brand of chicken delicacies, this sandwich begins with a locally-sourced breast crisped to perfection. Add to that a spicy Gochujang sauce, napa slaw and lemongrass aioli and you have a delightfully tasty sandwich. Do not skimp on the sides either as Brewbird offers jalapeno popper corn (pictured here), rainbow slaw and their OMG sprouts. They also offer gluten-free options too! If the lot is full make sure to park on the 1st Avenue and 13½th Street block or street parking on 1st Avenue and 12th Street.
