About Us


... by folks with a passion for the outdoors, hunting, and of course, those wonderful working dogs! We are all about family, community, service to Our Country (we are veteran-founded), and naturally, we are about brewing great beer.

We started with Hunter's Amber, a labor of love with its wonderful caramel notes and blend of floral and citrus hops. We won People's Choice at the Muddy River Mashers Oktoberfest 2010 and decided that we ought to start brewing for the Bismarck-Mandan area.

Bird Dog Brewing was officially founded in 2012 by our brewer, Dennis Kwandt, and his inspirational wife, Tami. They set to work on developing more great recipes and first opened BDB for business in January 2015.

Within a few years, Bird Dog Brewing outgrew our brewing facility in Main Street Bar (Mandan, ND) no we decided to expand our operations and move into a new space in South Bismarck. We currently brew at a capacity of apx 3.5 barrels a week and look forward to ramping up brewing capacity to 10.5bbl weekly.

Ask for Bird Dog beers at your local pub or restaurant! Stop by our taproom in South Bismarck to try out our newest beers and the favorites. If you're a business owner interested in adding us to your tap lineup, contact us for our current available beers and prices for distribution. See you soon, Cheers!
