Back by popular demand, HCSCC Programming Director Markus Krueger will be doing another season of History on Tap! at Junkyard Brewing Company, starting Monday, March 20, and continuing Monday nights (with a break) this spring. In the talks, Markus highlights Prohibition-era Clay County history from the research that brought together our current exhibition, Wet & Dry: Alcohol in Clay County, 1871-1937.

The first round of History On Tap! generated a lot of buzz around town when it began last November–doubling the Moorhead brewery’s usual crowd and prompting Spotlight Media to designate the talks as one of their “Things To Do in 2017” in Fargo by Fargo–and now Markus is ready for a chaser. Admission is still free, but we encourage you to buy something at the bar and support both local brew and local history!
