The number of breweries in North Dakota has shot up in recent years. And recently, Thrillist released their list of the most underrated brewery in every state.

In North Dakota, the Bismarck-Mandan region has several quality breweries in the area and for beer lovers, you may even have a go-to in the region. However, Thrillist's pick for the most underrated brewery in North Dakota is not in Bis-Man. Drekker Brewing Company in Fargo earned the title of being the most underrated brewery in the state.

It's tough to tell what exactly the clear defining points of that distinction are, but here is what Thrillist had to say about Drekker Brewing Company:

Whenever somebody talks about NoDak, Fargo inevitably comes up. That goes double for beer, since Fargo Brewing Co. has long been the biggest name in a pretty sparse field. Still, there are other breweries scattered throughout, and Drekker -- which ditches cinematic references for Viking ones -- is cultivating a cult based around its strong, confident offerings which range from the high-octane Nightman Cometh imperial stout to the Broken Rudder IRA and a lineup of stellar sours.

Thrillist also listed Fargo Brewing Company as the top-rated brewery in the state as well.

Of course, that is not to snub some of our fine local breweries in the Bismarck-Mandan region like Laughing Sun, Bismarck Brewing, Bird Dog Brewing, Edwinton Brewing Company, Buffalo Commons Brewing, Stonehome Brewing, or Dialectic Brewing to name a few. If you're in the mood for a cold one, feel free to try some of the local brews that Bis-Man has to offer.
