2. Souris River Brewing. You never heard about the North Dakota Mafia. For good reason: they’re just that fracking respected. You also don’t hear about North Dakota breweries. For bad reason: any time one of their few brewers makes a subpar IPA they wind up sleeping with the colored fishes (yellow perch, white suckers, brown bullhead) in the 435-mile long river that starts in Saskatchawan and ends in Manitoba but courses through Minot, ND where made men tap their noses as they raise their pints of Moon Strangler Rye. Notice no one’s talking.
