About Our North Dakota Meadery
Prairie Rose is Fargo's first meadery. Prairie Rose Meadery is owned and operated by Susan and Bob Ruud. In 2013 they won the gold medal in the traditional mead category at the National Homebrew Competition. They also won the gold medal in the same category in 2006.
Our goal is to blend our love of North Dakota and our love of Mead to give our customers an aroma and palate sensation like no other. We take great pride in our products and know that when you taste a sample of our Mead you will be able to tell this.
Prairie Rose Meadery produces Traditional Mead (honey only), Melomel (Fruit Mead) and Metheglin (Spiced Mead) using ingredients mostly from North Dakota. Their mead is available in bottles and by the glass at their tasting room at the meadery which is located off of 32nd Avenue South in Fargo, west of I-29.
