Fargo Beer Co. officials say they have sealed the deal on a brewery in the city their product is named for.

Company spokesman Aaron Hill says the lease for the building officially begins on March 10. The brewery will be located at 610 North University Drive in downtown Fargo.

The company is currently brewing its beer at Sand Creek Brewery in Black River Falls, Wis. The product is then shipped to North Dakota and sold at taverns in the Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., area.

Hill says brewing at the Fargo building should begin this summer.

The brewery plans to distribute beer in several area states and is hoping to produce 10,000 barrels, or about 315,000 gallons, within three years.

Says Hill, "Needless to say we are very excited."
