BEER DINNERS

What is better than beer and food? In this issue, we pair the two together (literally). We teamed up with local breweries and local restaurants to pair FargoMoorhead-born beers with handcrafted Red River Valley dishes. Sophisticated palates are certainly not required as we span the entire city searching for the perfect beer and food pairings. Here is what we found.

FROMTHEEDITORS

THE ART OF THE

BREW

E

ach month, my co-editor Nolan and I prove ourselves to be opposites, and this month is no different. Nolan sees himself as a beer enthusiast and I myself tend to prefer a crafted cocktail or a cider. I suppose this makes us a great team for putting together Fargo Monthly to cover a wide variety of interests. Regardless of what I am drinking, I am an aesthetics person. Call me superficial, but I love the places I frequent to be well designed and artful. Lucky for me, the breweries and bars of Fargo-Moorhead sure know how to create an ambiance. Since I’m more of an “art person,” here some of my favorite murals you can find right here at our local watering holes: Drekker’s Brewhalla - by Punchgut • Drekker’s Brewhalla has become quite the staple in the Fargo brewing tapestry. Part of this is the incredible, experimental brews they have on tap, but the other part comes from the jaw-dropping location. Well-known artist, Punchgut, created a massive mural in the backroom to match Drekker’s iconic labels, which he also designs. Wild Terra - by Brett Lysne (Sandwich Club Design Co.) • Wild Terra has become known for its statement floral wallpaper, but just recently they added a new wall adornment. In their upstairs loft,

there’s now a mountain landscape mural by Brett Lysne, ready for all your Instagram needs. Pixeled Brewing Company - by Sano13 (Grant Hicks) • Grant Hicks, also known as Sano13, created the pink and teal synth-wave pieces that cover almost every wall in Pixeled Brewing Company. These murals couldn’t be more appropriate for this nostalgic brew-cade. Fargo Brewing Company - by Upper Hand Signs • While unassuming coming from the east, the western wall of Fargo Brewing Company is adorned by a larger-than-life iteration of their iconic logo, executed by Upper Hand Signs. You might be familiar with Upper Hand Signs work from Pounds, Potato Brothers, Robert’s Alley garage and so many more locations around town. Junkyard Brewing Company - by Mandel Mertz • Welcoming you in from the parking lot of Junkyard Brewing Company is a mural filled with koi fish, a train, Hjemkomst Viking ship and more, created by artist Mandel Mertz. This fun and vibrant piece is just a hint of the equally as fun and vibrant experience you’ll have inside the brewery’s walls. Until Next Month,

THE

BIG FRIENDLY

I

f you know me, you know I thoroughly enjoy all types of craft beer. So when we came up with this idea to pair local beer with local food, it just felt kind of natural. I am by no means a flavor expert when it comes to pairing beer and food, but it isn’t necessarily challenging. Some of the beers featured in this issue you may have tried before, some you have not. My wish for you is to try a new beer this month. The world of craft brewing can become a fickle beast for those not enamored with the subject matter. That is when you hear comments like “this is too hoppy” or “wow, this is boozy.” Listen, not every craft beer is going to be for you. I am not afraid to try anything even though I do not like certain flavor profiles (looking at you Hefeweizen). Do not be afraid to try a new beer because it says “barrel-aged” or “double dryhopped” next to it. That is a brewery showing their care and passion for their craft and you, the beer drinker. Try something new in November. Here are some personal favorites. Nolan’s Top November Beers Peanut Butter Bandit (Peanut Stout) Junkyard Brewing Company Junkyard usually releases the classic Peanut Butter Bandit in the fall/winter time. I believe it is a great beer to introduce to first-time stout drinkers. I know it was the first truly “dark” beer I

have ever had. Since I am still drinking darker beers, I think it served as a perfect foray for me. If dark beers aren’t necessarily your thing, give this a try before you write the style off. Stone’s Throw (Scottish Ale) - Fargo Brewing Company This is my opinion, but this is the original Fargo beer. It’s malty, flavorful and is easily drinkable despite it having a darker hue. What you should really get excited about is Fargo Brewing’s “Tuesday Infuseday” where they often infuse fruity flavors to their various beers. Their raspberry infusion with the Stone’s Throw is delightful. Supreme Bee (Imperial Double IPA) Drekker Brewing Company This is perfect for the cooling weather while also providing a nice hop bite. Drekker brews this one with Three Bears Honey, creating a creamy sweet taste to the beer. It’s a home run for me. Honorable Mention Grain Belt Premium (Lager) - August Schell Brewing This will always have a special place in my heart. Being brewed in Minnesota, it still has a semi-local tie. This is my go-to at-home beer (lower calories compared to the three above). It’s an easy drinker and as the label indicated, it’s a friendly brew. Stay Friendly and Cheers,

Nolan Schmidt

We don't have to tell you why art is important. But we will introduce you to some incredible local artists who are making waves, nearby and beyond. Whether you are filling an empty wall, setting the mood or hoping for a conversation starter, no home is complete without art. Join us as we meet some of Fargo's finest creators and get ready to be inspired to add to your own home gallery.

Whether you are a Bison fan or not, very few recognize the details that go into the North Dakota State athletic competitions we enjoy watching. One of those details is science and the various branches of that vague term. From a sheer scientific perspective, there are a host of physical and mental ingredients that need to occur over the course of a play, game or sequence to achieve athletic success. What are these ingredients? And how do they create a recipe for success at North Dakota State? We take a deep dive inside the world of sports science to answer those questions.

Starting a business can be a lonely experience, however, it's important to know that you're not the only one going through the same challenges. That's why in this month's Startup Issue, Nick Horob, the founder of Harvest Profit, has been keeping a diary of the highs and lows of growing a business.

The Food

Pork & Mushroom Dumplings An extremely savory dish, the pork and mushroom dumplings have become an instant success at Sol Ave. Kitchen. Homemade dough, along with freshly seasoned pork, mushrooms are hand-crimped together and boiled to perfection. For good measure, Sol Ave. slaps them on their flat top grill for an added crunch. Alongside the dumplings are kimchi, scallion and radish. The dumplings are topped with the restaurant's signature "dirty sauce" which is a sweet and spicy addition to the dish.

Sol Ave. Kitchen 1408 1st Ave N, Moorhead

The Beer

Brewstand Boogie New England Style Double IPA This dry-hopped New England Double IPA is full of tropical and juicy flavors with a mild hop bite. Brewed with Mosaic, Azacca, El Dorado and Eureka hops, Junkyard uses the dry-hop technique to attain a hoppy aroma for the Brewstand Boogie. Dry-hopping is the process of adding hops to a beer after first boiling the wort (unfermented beer) and adding an initial round of hops to the boil. Adding that second dosage of hops after the boil helps the beer attain more aroma and flavor without making the beer more bitter. This brew aims for flavor with just a 20 IBU (International Bitterness Units). Brewers and beer drinkers across the world look to the IBU to gauge the bitterness and hoppiness of a beer. With a lower IBU, Junkyard has no doubt succeeded in their quest to make a more flavorful Double IPA.

Junkyard Brewing Company 1416 1st Ave N, Moorhead

Why It Pairs As a Double IPA (albeit New England style, which is traditionally less bitter), it could be easy to assume it's a hoppy, bitter beer. However, using the dry-hopping process, Junkyard has created a flavorful Double IPA with minimal bitterness (again, only 20 IBUs). The juiciness of the beer acts as a palate cleanser for the savory pork and mushroom dumplings. While pork is a fattier protein, you will not get that notion eating this dish. Even if you do, IPAs are perfect for cutting through fattier proteins. Where this pairing shines is the Brewstand Boogie's ability to cancel out any spice you'll get from the dirty sauce or pork and mushrooms. In that sense, it should serve as a palate cleanser in between the savory bites.

21


The Food

Pan-Seared Pork Belly A glorious slab of pork belly is a culinary delicacy to many chefs and diners alike. The Toasted Frog is known for its creative menu and this pan-seared pork belly is a fan favorite among staff and patrons. The pork belly is braised is a citrus chili sauce and is placed alongside an avocado salad, arugula, fresh tomato and a citrus rice pilaf. It all comes together for a flavor explosion that will leave you wanting more.

The Toasted Frog 305 Broadway N, Fargo 22 | NOVEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


The Beer

Ectogasm New England IPA New England IPAs are a trendy brew for many across the country. In plain terms, it opens the doors for more traditional beer drinkers to try India Pale Ales. The hoppy and bitter flavor of a traditional IPA is hit and miss with craft beer drinkers (it’s a home run for IPA apologists). Yet, the New England IPA is different as it does not rely on being overly hoppy or bitter. Rather, brewers focus on juiciness and more tropical hop notes in their NE IPAs. That happens to be the case with Drekker’s popular Ectogasm NE IPA. It’s juicy and hazy, which we come to expect from an IPA, but it brings a flavor that does not pack a hoppy punch. That alone has made it one of Drekker’s best in their long lineage of great beers.

Drekker Brewing Company 1666 1st Ave N, Fargo

Why It Pairs Hoppier IPAs can command a palate to the point where food could become bland. Yet, with the softer flavor of the Ectogasm that will not be an issue for those looking to try the pan-seared pork belly. However, the mild bitterness and hop character do serve a valuable purpose in this pairing. They are designed to cut through fats that can accumulate in the mouth while eating. With a higher fat protein in pork belly, the Ectogasm will help to balance your palate following a bite and prepare for the next one.

23


The Beer

Stone's Throw Scottish Ale Scottish ales are stellar introductory beers for those who want to join the craft beer community. It relies heavily on flavor by producing a malty taste compared to a hoppy one. Fargo Brewing's Stone's Throw is perhaps the most timeless beer in our community to date. It holds a darker complexion but does not cheat you on flavor. Expect to taste caramel, toffee, cocoa, honey and malty flavors. While that may seem like a lot for your brain to process, the Stone's Throw remains an incredibly smooth beer and is very easy to drink.

The Food

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Porter Creek sucks you in as soon as you walk through the front doors. The woodfire grill smell is so good, it can distract you from the goings-on at your table at any given time. Bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin is a simple, yet effective use of proteins and is one of Porter Creek's most popular dishes. It is cooked to your liking and is served on a bed of wild rice piquillo pepper hash and wilted spinach. The final touch is adding some homemade apricot bourbon barbeque sauce.

Porter Creek Hardwood Grill 1555 44th St S, Fargo

Why It Pairs Some may have the misnomer that since the Stone's Throw is so flavorful, it would overpower the bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin. In reality, it holds the potential to heighten the ingredients of this dish. The malty flavor adds to the taste of the dish while it can also finish off a bite with its character. Its quick finish can only help enhance the flavor of the pork tenderloins.

25


The Food

Bangers And Mash Bangers And Mash is a traditional English plate spawned in World War I era Great Britain. The Blarney Stone takes the dish and gives it their own homemade touch. It begins with mashed Champ potatoes alongside four authentic Irish sausages. Top that with Blarney's signature gravy (combined with sauteed onions and rosemary) and green onion. Accompanied by a side of baked beans and a roll, this meal is versatile in many aspects. It serves as a great breakfast, lunch or dinner and is also a stellar cure for those nagging hangovers.

The Beer

Guava Kettle Sour The sour beer craze has taken over more than just Fargo-Moorhead. Thirsty patrons are clamoring for more tart and tangy brews. Some sours can take up to years to age if being brewed in a barrel. On the flip side, when made in a kettle, beer can sour quicker opening up more possibilities for local brewers. This Prairie Brothers kettle sour offers up a very tropical flavor thanks to the guava used during brewing. While it remains fruity it does not skimp on the pucker factor either, leaving it to please mild and more extreme sour beer fanatics.

Prairie Brothers Brewing Company 4474 23rd Ave S, Fargo

Why It Pairs Sour beers can sometimes be a fickle beast for local restaurants. On the one hand, a beer that is too sour can drown out the entire flavor of a specific dish. However, a moderately tart beer can cleanse the palate after taking a bite of a dish. A dish like Bangers And Mash offers forth plenty of saltier flavors in the gravy and sausage. With the guava kettle sour, it serves as a palate refresher for diners. It will likely reduce the salty taste on your tongue and prepare your mouth for the next bite of this pub delicacy.

What was once a pop-upbased business, Thunder Coffee just opened it’s first brick and mortar location in downtown West Fargo.

30 | NOVEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

CommunityDriven Coffee


BY Alexandra Martin

Gary Ussery

So you find yourself at yet another company event, weaving through business connections and hoping the man you’ve met many times before but always forget his name will be wearing a nametag. It’s been a long day at work and you’ve been staring at your computer screen since 8 a.m. Your eyes are strained, you wish you were wearing sweatpants and you keep yawning. But alas! A rumble shakes you as you spot what you think is a mirage in the distance: the Thunder Coffee cart. Could it be? Specialty brewed, delicious coffee to wake you up...here? As you order a cold brew from the effervescent barista, there is hope for you yet. The beverage touches your lips and you suddenly remember that guy’s name, you gain a pep in your step, everyone wants to know who you are, you’re glowing!

Whether at a business event, the Red River Market, Creative Mornings or a Bluestem concert, Thunder Coffee has specialized in being the premier coffee pop-up since 2017. Showing their smiling faces and steaming cups of coffee at any favorite event in town, they’ve become a staple in the caffeinated community of Fargo-Moorhead. Consisting of husband and wife duo, Skyler Dutton and Nicole Steen, alongside Dexter Dutton, Skyler’s brother, the Thunder Coffee team is quite literally a family. To better serve the community they grew to love while serving at pop-ups, this family expanded the Thunder Coffee experience into a brick and mortar, opened October 8. “What really sparked the move was that we really missed building that regular client base and having people that we saw on a regular basis throughout the winter,” said co-owner Dexter Dutton. Thunder Coffee thrives at summer markets and events, but once the weather hits below freezing, the thrill of serving coffee from a cart is less enticing. From the start, Thunder Coffee has always had an emphasis on being community-driven and really values knowing its customers personally. By having a brick and mortar, they now can continue to grow that loyal

31


customer base. “We really wanted a space that we could build a community around. So we are not just serving coffee. We can host a lot more community-based events,” said Dutton. They hope to host some yoga events in the space and they are already slated to host entrepreneur networking group Stampede. The new location is at 300 Sheyenne St Suite 190 at Pioneer Place in downtown West Fargo. Epic Management is in the midst of a four-phase project to build the area up and create a booming downtown West Fargo. “They are hoping to get more young, fun and lively things happening here and we wanted to be part of that,” said Dutton. When first approached by Epic Management, the Thunder team wasn’t sure about moving to a physical location just yet. “But all it took was one trip out here and we saw what they were doing and what was going on. And we knew that we really wanted to be a part of that,” said Dutton. Once they saw the location and the potential the West Fargo downtown held, they knew this would be a good spot to spread their reach and plant roots into the community.

32 | NOVEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

When we started designing it, we realized it’s not a coffee shop for you, it’s a coffee shop by you, for the community.


Thunder Coffee

Pioneer Place 300 Sheyenne St Suite 190 West Fargo thundercoffeefargo.com While they started with cold brews and pour-overs, they’ve expanded their menu to encompass any well-crafted, specialty coffee drink. With the physical location, they can continue to experiment and try new mixtures. “We are also looking to really push the envelope as far as what coffee can be. [...]We do a lot of coffee cocktails. Really anything that is kind of weird and doesn’t taste quite like coffee, we want to expose that to people.” While the specialty coffees and teas are what keep people coming back, the design of the new location will certainly draw customers in. A large wooden-front bar anchors the space and sits beneath a statement light fixture that—if you look at it long enough— resembles an industrial raincloud. The high ceilings are welcoming and natural light adds the extra kick of energy one desires when going to a coffee shop. Local vintage shop, Shop Lavendar Land, took on the interior design and beautification, incorporating vintage seating, rugs and decor. Another local connection, Ashley Rieck of Tinker, finished the wood of the tables throughout.

The Thunder Coffee family will continue to serve the community at pop-ups and events, but now their set location can be a guaranteed go-to for darn-good coffee. Since their soft opening on September 23, they’ve seen an incredible outpouring of support from the community. “That was crazy to me. Seeing people coming in and hanging out and taking pictures. We hardly told people we were up and running and people showed up and supported,” said Dutton. Reflecting on the growth of the business and the establishment of a brick and mortar, Dutton said, “When we started designing it, we realized it’s not a coffee shop for you, it’s a coffee shop by you, for the community. I really want West Fargo and Fargo-Moorhead to know that that’s what we are going for. We don’t want to try and make something fit, we want to be West Fargo’s coffee shop and lean into that identity and let the people around us make that space what it needs to be for them.” Even though its doors have just opened, Thunder Coffee is sure to be that asset in the budding downtown West Fargo cityscape. 35


for 25 years

This November 16, Pangea celebrates its 25th anniversary of educating about and embracing our cultural differences

cultivating our cultures


P

angea” is the concept of a supercontinent that existed over 300 million years ago. It is believed that this supercontinent broke apart, forming into pieces of what we now know as our earth’s seven continents. While our continents are far in geography, The Historic and Cultural Society of Clay County’s annual event “Pangea: Cultivate our Cultures” shows that we aren’t so distant from one another after all. Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, this event is the largest free, family-friendly celebration of cultural diversity in the community. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on November 16, Fargo-Moorhead residents will gather at the Hjemkomst Center to celebrate and learn about the cultural diversity in our area. This one-day, family-friendly celebration of cultural diversity has something for everyone, including food, artwork, cultural exhibits, children’s activities, performances and educational demonstrations. For many, the sampling of ethnic foods is a highlight of the event,

and this year food vendors include Everest Tikka House, Adibon, the Concordia French Club, Red River Danes, Paul Aladdin and more. The Pangea celebration began in 1994, going by the name “Cultivate our Cultures” and put on by Cultural Diversity Resources. It wasn’t until 2003 that The Historic and Cultural Society of Clay County teamed with Cultivate our Cultures to host the event and rename it. The event was started as a way to bring the community together to learn about the different cultures that exist in our region and to make connections. The executive director of Cultural Diversity Resources and Pangea’s founder, Yoke-Sim Gunaratne said, “Cultivate our Cultures was really done not just for new Americans, but minorities, too. We wanted to highlight diversity, focusing on people of color and different cultures.” One aspect that makes the event so interesting is that the vendors, performers

and educators involved in the event are all living in our community currently. These aren’t people coming into town to teach about where they are from, these are our neighbors. For many living in the region, they might not know the breadth of diversity our city limits hold, and this event is the perfect opportunity to be educated. Maureen Kelly Johnson, executive director of the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County and director of Pangea since 2008, said, “I think it has a unifying effect on our community. We’ve had so many people come and say they had no idea there was this much diversity in our community.” Beyond a general awareness of who our neighbors are, the event offers several educational opportunities. Throughout all of the Hjemkomst Center, there will be booths with vendors of imported goods, henna demonstrations, food samplings and educational programs. “We always try to have the educational component, it’s not just entertainment. That is part of it, but there are ways to learn about

37


how they dress, the meaning of certain dances or songs and more,” said Del Rae Williams, former Moorhead mayor and longtime Pangea collaborator.

Hjemkomst Center 202 1st Ave N, Moorhead

hcscconline.org/pangea

With a commonality of being new to the area, vendors and participating groups can also get to know each other better. “I encourage a lot of them to connect with each other because they have that common bond,” said Williams. Even though the cultures from countries near and far are very different, how they relate to the greater, larger community is that thing in common. “I get to see people interact and have dialogue and have fun with people from different cultures. This is a time we all get together and eat something new and have fun,” said Gunaratne. Beyond the job market and affordable cost of living, one thing that makes Fargo-Moorhead so special is the sense of community here, and that is why refugees and new Americans settle here. About Pangea and why Fargo-Moorhead is so unique, Gunaratne said, “It really comes back to the community atmosphere and connecting with one another, it’s so important. I still think, to this day, living in a place like Fargo-Moorhead is amazing because I love the connections. I go shopping or anywhere and I see familiar faces. You feel like you are part of the society. It’s not just fitting in, it is feeling like you belong. This event is really getting people to feel like they aren’t just fitting in, they are belonging. They are part of the society and the community, which is so important. Diversity is all about [feeling] I’m not different. I belong here, I am part of the community.”

We wanted to highlight diversity, focusing on people of color and different cultures.


This special program is made possible by generous donations, sponsors, community partners and collaborators such as Cultural Diversity Resources, the New American Consortium and Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota. Pangea is truly made for the community and by the community. In years past, the parking lot has filled up by 10:30 a.m. (not to worry, parking is available at the Moorhead Center Mall and there will be a free shuttle back and forth). The first 500 attendees get a free bag and attendance is free, so what are you waiting for? Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 16 and prepare for a day of diversity and cultural education.


...No Matter What

Friends of the Childen friendsfargomoorhead.org

P

ortland, Seattle, Boston, Chicago...and Fargo. With a growing number of locations across the United States and the United Kingdom, Friends of the Children just announced their newest branch in FargoMoorhead. According to their website, Friends of the Children is a national nonprofit that pairs children facing the greatest obstacles with a salaried, professional mentor (called a “Friend”) for 12+ years. With executive director John Fisher at the helm, they’ve opened their 18th chapter in FargoMoorhead. Starting in Portland, Ore. in 1993, founder Duncan Campbell’s own troubled childhood served as the

impetus for founding Friends of the Children. Campbell grew up often not knowing where his parents were or where his next meal would come from. As an adult, he found success in business thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit. Once established and successful, he wanted to return to Portland to help children much like himself. With its chapters in major cities like Austin, San Francisco and New York, how did this organization end up in Fargo? Friends of the Children only comes to cities where it is requested, and enough of Fargo-Moorhead saw the need for this unique organization here. A group of philanthropic-minded business owners in the community and the Stand Together Foundation knew they wanted a branch here and raised the funds for its establishment. In order to start a new chapter,

Friends of the Children requires the community to raise seed money for three years of funding. “In other chapters, sometimes it takes them three years to raise the money, we raised ours in less than a month. People coming together to be like, it’s that important that we have this program here and through the work of Stand Together and board members, we were able to make that happen,” said Fisher.

So how does it work? Friends of the Children will partner with community organizations to identify and select children ages four to six for enrollment in the program. Friends of the Children works with local schools to go into their kindergarten classes and assess students based on risk factors, like having a single parent, drugs in the home, experience in the foster care system, etc. They also work

closely with Churches United for the Homeless and social service agencies to identify children who might benefit from the program.

are within a 30-mile radius of Fargo-Moorhead and as long as their caregiver wants them to continue the program, they will have a mentor.

Once identified, each child will be paired with a Friend who will spend three to four hours a week, one-on-one with each child, following them from kindergarten through high-school graduation. The program ensures that this relationship will last 12+ years, no matter what.

Full-time, hired mentors serve as “Friends” in this program. They get paired with no more than eight youth as to have the maximum amount of impact on each youth. Striving to keep these mentors in the children’s lives, this isn’t a job for a short period of time. “We want people who are going to want to stick it out. This isn’t a job you do for a year. You become so engrained in the lives of these families, you don’t leave that,” said Fisher. With a five-part interview process (online application, phone, one-on-one, panel and group interviews and an outing with a youth), those applying to be Friends show how invested they are in the program.

In this program, they work to break generational poverty. By coming into youth’s lives at ages four to six, they’ve seen the cycle of poverty change in the family’s trajectory. Once paired with a Friend in kindergarten, the child is guaranteed a Friend all the way through their primary schooling. Even if their initial Friend moves away or they move homes, as long as they

The mentors set up roadmaps for each youth based on what that individual youth desires. “These kids, they have dreams, they have aspirations. Oftentimes, nobody taps into that for whatever reason. We want to tap into that and help them grow,” said Fisher. Instead of telling children what their goals and aspirations should be, they guide them into finding what they really want. In addition to working with the children, the organization also knows the importance of working with their caregivers and establishing attainable goals. “In our model, the youth are the focus, but you are not just working with the youth, you are working with the caregivers and parents and grandparents or whoever is in the situation with them. You don’t want to work four hours with [the youth] and then everything they’re hearing the rest of the day is completely different,” said Fisher. “So we are working with the parents on what they want from their child. Their dream and the youth’s dreams matching up,

“I’m always going to be here for you no matter what.” or maybe they don’t match up. How can we help them match up?” According to Friends of the Children, on any given day in Fargo-Moorhead, at least 50 children ages four to six are in foster care. The leading reason for a child’s placement in foster care in our region is parental substance abuse. Additionally, one in five people who are homeless in Fargo and Moorhead are children. Nearly all homeless youth (95%) and threequarters of homeless adults (74%) in Fargo-Moorhead have experienced some type of adverse childhood experiences such as abuse, neglect or out-of-home placement. Because of these factors and more, an

organization such as Friends of the Children is necessary in Fargo-Moorhead. “Because of the need in the foster care system and the community at large, [...] we just saw this mass that we had to listen to,” said Fisher. “I know from my previous youth advocacy work in the community that this early intervention and prevention model can ensure that our children facing the toughest challenges have more choices and more opportunities as they enter adulthood,” said Fisher. Fisher previously served as the Executive Director of CHARISM, another youth-based organization here in town, and knows quite a bit about how to best serve youth in the community.

In our community, there are children facing extreme circumstances and trauma after trauma. But Fisher notes, “When our Friends come in, they say, ‘I can’t change this, but what I can do is I’m always going to be here for you. I’m always going to be here for you no matter what.’” Thanks to this new organization in town, more children will have good mentors to help them achieve their goals, and even goals they never dreamed possible. Friends of the Children’s Fargo-Moorhead branch is currently building its board of directors and hiring program staff. If interested, visit friendsfargomoorhead.org for a list of open positions.

eat safe, fargo!

T

here are few joys in life as satisfying as a juicy hamburger and a beer from your favorite restaurant after a long day. It’s tough to top the sensation of a precisely peppered patty dancing on the palate, the sweet tang of your favorite sauce and the refreshing crunch of fresh lettuce. In crafting the perfect burger, time and temperature controlled for safety foods were handled safely to ensure they can be enjoyed worry-free. The beef or lettuce can transmit foodborne illnesses if improperly handled. But most people are more worried about whether to order the soup or salad than if they will contract a stomach bug from the tomatoes. That confidence is thanks in large part to the eight inspectors of the Fargo Cass Public Health Environmental Health Division. The inspectors work hard to ensure nearly everything you eat, whether it’s from a grocery store, a convenience store or in a school lunch, is up to FDA standards and beyond. “When I’m inspecting, I ask myself, would I let my child eat there?” said Laura Baum, an Environmental Health Practitioner with Fargo Cass Public Health. What does one of these inspections look like? That’s a bit of a trick question, according to environmental health director, Grant Larson.

46 | NOVEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

“Hardly any inspection is the same since each establishment has different managers and is in a different space,” explains Larson. Inspections can be announced or unannounced, and depending on the establishments, inspections can be required a minimum of three times per year. The role of inspectors on these visits is less of an enforcer and more of an


educator. For example, during a recent unannounced inspection, Baum noticed ice being dumped in a handwashing-only sink. She let the restaurant’s manager know this is potentially hazardous since bacteria from used ice can manifest in the sink and splash up during hand washing. Baum turned this risk, albeit small, into a learning opportunity. The scope of what inspectors look for during their visits is incredible. They can check up to 56 different categories of compliance in a visit. They examine nearly everything from employee hygiene to cooking utensils to the source of ingredients. Inspectors then make request corrections if anything doesn’t meet standards. Not only are inspectors examining many things, but they also have to check into a huge pool of establishments. Fargo Cass Public Health inspects more than 900 restaurants, liquor stores, bakeries, schools churches and more. Establishments are divided into three different tiers, depending on how complex their food operation is. For example, a bar selling pre-packaged foods like frozen pizzas would fall into the first tier. These establishments are inspected once per year since they pose the lowest risk of food mismanagement. Second-tier establishments include any location which prepares, cooks and immediately serves food. Tier two establishments are inspected at least twice per year. Tier three establishments prepare, cook, serve, cool and reheat food, and must be inspected a minimum of three times per year. Keep in mind, these are minimums, and inspectors can check in on restaurants more than thrice per year. This means thousands of inspections must be completed each

year to ensure the visitors and residents of Fargo can safely enjoy whatever they want to eat. In order to accommodate that many inspections, the role of environmental health professionals must transcend the bounds of nine to five. Restaurants and other eateries operate before and after standard business hours, Monday through Friday, and inspections are conducted accordingly. Inspectors are equipped with a menagerie of tools and instruments to help evaluate kitchens. Baum carries a food thermometer to check holding and cooking temperatures, as well as a disk to place in hot dishwashing machines to ensure water is steamy enough to kill pathogens. After a quick rinse, the disk is taken out, and an internal thermometer relays the temperature to Baum. Other establishments use chemical-based dishwashers. In those instances, Baum utilizes a test strip to check the washer for optimal chemical balance. Inspectors can have every tool in the world at their disposal, but it wouldn’t matter if they couldn’t communicate with restaurant management. It’s clear inspectors care about building a rapport while offering corrections. This strategy pays dividends over an authoritarian approach. “We find that most establishments are great to work with and eager to learn,” said Larson. So the next time you scour the menu at your favorite diner, fretting over which side pairs better with the beef rather than concerning yourself with the safety of your dishes, know this is thanks to the teamwork of restaurant management and of the Environmental Health inspectors of Fargo Cass Public Health.

flavoring with

beer U

sually, when you think of beer, you think of that rewarding, ice-cold beverage. It also is a genius way to add flavor to anything. Either by adding to baked goods to highlight the malty flavors or adding beer to soups or stews to add a deep and earthy flavor.

When choosing which beer to use, you have to take quite a bit into consideration. Will you be wanting to use a sour ale? If so be ready to pucker up because the sourness translates well into whatever you are adding it to. Do you like bitter foods? If so, use an India Pale Ale. Cooking beer will always add bitterness to a dish but when using an IPA, it will really embrace the bitter from the hops. The most popular, and my favorite beers to cook with are the more malty profiled beers, i.e. Stouts, porters, brown ales. When using the maltier styles of beer the malts in the beer will provide a natural sweetness as well as the slight bitterness will help balance creamy foods or foods high in sugar.

Serves 4

Porter Braised Pork Loin with beer gravy, potato and gruyere pierogi, sautéed kale, crème fraiche Brined Pork Loin • • • • • •

2 pork loins trimmed 2 cups of water 16 oz porter beer ¼ cup coarse salt 6 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns

Pierogi Dough

Now that you have picked your beer, what are you going to do with it? The choices are virtually endless. You can braise, stew, simmer, poach, use in batters and baked goods, brining and marinades. The top ways to get the optimum beer flavors into the food would be by either braising with it or brining with it. When braising, you’re breaking down the sugars in the beer as well as in the protein you’re cooking to get the deep malt flavors out of the beer. When brining, you’re making a salt solution with the beer. Brining is salt’s ability to alter the proteins, causing muscle fibers to unwind and swell. The brine gets trapped in the proteins when cooked. The liquid binds to the muscle, creating flavor and a juicier product. Whichever way you choose to use beer with food, there is no wrong way to find a way to add a little bit to your food while still saving some to drink.

• • • • • • •

2 pounds all-purpose flour 1 whole egg ½ tablespoon olive oil 1 ¾ C warm water 1 tablespoon salt 2 cups mashed potato 1 cup grated gruyere cheese

Beer Gravy • • • •

1 whole onion, chopped 1 clove of garlic, minced 12 oz porter 1 sprig rosemary

Sautéed Kale

• 1 bunch blanched kale • 1 tablespoon minced garlic • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions • For the pork brine, bring the water, beer, salt, sugar and peppercorns to a boil. Bring off heat and cool • Once cooled pour over the pork loins and let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours. • For the pierogis add all ingredients to stand mixer, mix on low until combined • Rest dough for 15 minutes. • To make the pierogi filling just mix together the already made and cooled mashed potato, gruyere, salt and pepper • When dough is rested, spray a countertop with pan spray so the dough stays on the table (the opposite of flour). Roll the dough with a rolling pin until 1/16 of an inch thick. • Take a 3 inch round cookie cutter and cut as many out of the dough as you can. Once the rings are cut, discard the extra dough. • Take 1 tablespoon of the filling and place in the center of each ring of dough. Use your finger and wipe around the edge of the circle with some water, close up the pierogi in a half-moon shape and seal by squeezing with your fingers. • For the Pork Loin • Once the pork has brined for at least 4 hours, rinse the brine and pat the pork dry • Heat a medium-sized saute pan on medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. • Sear each side of the pork and place into a 375-degree oven for 10 minutes or until the pork reached 145 degrees and let it rest. • To finish the pierogis, don’t discard the oil from the pork and place the pierogis in the hot oil over medium heat, fry until browned on both sides. • Serve the pork sliced over garlic kale, brown ale gravy and crème fraiche (found at your local grocery store).

Sleep Hackathon 11 QUICK & SIMPLE WAYS TO GET THE BEST NIGHT’S SLEEP OF YOUR LIFE… TONIGHT

50 | NOVEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Imagine this: Someone walks up to you and pitches you on a brand-new, magical potion. This potion can give you better skin, a better mood, a better body and even better sex! Would you buy it? That potion is real, but you don’t have to drink it. All it takes is going to bed a little bit earlier. Good sleep is the best way to renew and refresh ourselves, yet it is one of the most overlooked aspects of health. Not getting enough sleep, or getting poor quality sleep, is actually quite dangerous. One of my three board certifications is Sleep Medicine, so this can keep ME up at night, worrying about all of you!

BY Dr. Sue Mathison Catalyst Medical Center and Clinical Spa Founder

Not getting enough shut-eye can lead to a spike in stress hormones (which causes weight gain and other issues), memory issues, a dramatically higher risk of getting into a car accident, high blood pressure, stroke, depression and more. Sleep is NOT optional. We all know this, but, millions of Americans are seriously deprived — getting less than six hours a night. Optimal sleep is seven to eight hours for most people. Unlike other health upgrades —diet, fitness, and other things that can take a great deal of time and effort —sleep is an immediate gift! All it takes is a few small tweaks to your usual routine. It starts in the morning!

She is a Stanford educated, triple-board certified physician who has received numerous accolades for leadership and Top Doctor for her clinical skills.

Make your bed

Your mom was right! Make your bed! There is something so soothing about peeling back smooth, cool sheets rather than a tangled mess of fabric. Seeing a beautiful, tidy, welcoming bed allows your parasympathetic nervous system to kick in and relax your entire body. 2

Invest in the best!

You’re going to (hopefully!) be spending 1/3 of your life — eight hours a day — in your bed. Invest in a mattress, bed frame, blankets, pillows and sheets that you really love! Bamboo sheets — so delicious and eco-friendly. I also love weighted blankets. They make you feel like a big hug. 3

Cool your jets

Studies show that we sleep better in cooler temperatures, less than 67 degrees. Turn down the heat at night and save a few dollars. Try cracking a window or turning on a fan in your bedroom to chill things out. Side note and PSA: cooler temps and the presence of a gentle fan moving air in a baby’s room decreases the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS.) 4

Create a “caffeine cut-off”

We all tolerate caffeine differently. I have a friend who can chug a double-shot of espresso at midnight and then drift off to sleep! But generally, it’s a good idea to put your stash of tea or coffee away eight hours before sleep. So, if bedtime is 10 p.m., that means your final vanilla latte of the day should be happening no later than 2 p.m.

9

Supplements can help

Vitamin D: Who knew Vitamin D was so important for good sleep? Get your levels checked so that you know if you are deficient and need to catch up. If so, take Vitamin D in the morning. Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids can increase feelings of wellness and decrease stressful feelings.

5

The booze snooze backfires

Pursuing the finer things, like the perfect food and beer pairings, tend to make us relaxed and even sleepy. But adult beverages cause a paradoxical effect four to five hours after imbibing. Our brain neurons rev up, causing lighter sleep and maybe an extra early wake-up. Start the festivities earlier and switch to water a few hours before bedtime. 6

Screen out screen time

Bright lights from computers, TV and cell phone mess keep our brains overstimulated. Try to unplug from devices an hour before bedtime. You can also try amber-colored glasses, or a free software called “f.lux” on your computer to automatically filter out the blue light wavelengths that are really bad for sleep. 7

Black it out

Electronic lights are a serious sleepwrecker. Even that subtle glow from your cell phone, power cords or the TV even when it’s off can pose a problem. Use duct tape to cover the glows. Got neon lights peeking in through your windows from the city? Consider investing in blackout curtains. (A life-changer!) For the kids? Use an amber night-light. 8

Brighten up in the morning

Several minutes of natural light, especially in the morning, helps with energy and keeps our circadian clock in the right rhythm.

Magnesium: Magnesium can be very relaxing and most of us are short on it, so an evening supplement can be very helpful. Tryptophan: Tryptophan is responsible for post-Thanksgiving dinner dozing and a supplement can help you get to sleep faster at night. Melatonin: Melatonin is a powerful hormone and antioxidant that your body should produce on its own if you keep things dark enough. But use it occasionally for travel or for a night when you need power sleep. 10

Set a bedtime and a sleep ritual

Having consistent rituals to mark the end of the day can really help you to relax and drift off to a beautiful night’s sleep. You can try a warm bath; the cooling effect after makes you sleepy. You could try journaling for a few moments — like maybe writing down your top three most important priorities for tomorrow, just to get them out of your head and onto the page. You could listen to some soothing, sleep-inducing music. Diffuse some vanilla, sandalwood or lavender oil (one of Mother Nature’s best sleep enhancers!) 11

Don’t force it

If you’re lying in bed, wide awake, and just can’t fall asleep… shift into a new different activity. Avoid grabbing your laptop or another digital device — the illumination from the screen will just confuse your brain into thinking, “It’s morning! Wake up!” Instead, do something quiet and techfree — deep breathing, listening to gentle music, stretching, journaling more or reading a boring book with a special night light with no blue wavelengths. Sweet dreams! -Dr Sue

MEET THE

Barbarian I

’d have to say that beards pair quite perfectly with beer so for this month’s feature we met up with Mindy and Aaran Joneson of Barbarian.

Describe what you make. We make really awesome smelling, allnatural men’s grooming products, geared towards (but not limited to) men with beards.

If you were curious, Unglued’s Justin’s favorite beard oil is from their Dakotah Beard Oils line “No. 10 - Cinnamon and Cedar”!

What is your most popular beard oil? Our most popular beard oil is Prohibition Blend, which has a very sophisticated bourbon and tobacco scent.

INTERVIEW BY Ashley Morken, Unglued

52 | NOVEMBER 2019 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

How did you get into this business? We got started before beards were popular when Aaran grew his beard out. We had a difficult time finding good oils or beard balms, and it was even more difficult to find products that smelled good. So, Mindy started making some balms and perfected a few scents that were really nice. From there, we started trying to market them.

You’ve expanded your product line over the past couple years - tell us about some of your newest things. For grooming products, the newest thing we are making would be the bar soaps. There is a good variety of different soaps, from exfoliating to charcoal to shampoo bars. We also started expanding products a little bit and selling some awesome gourmet bourbon vanilla extract that we make. We plan on using this to expand a bit into some spice blends for cooking. What is a word that best describes you guys? Honest You guys do a variety of other craftwork, tell us about that. First of all, Aaran is a luthier and makes handmade Norwegian Hardinger Fiddles and even traveled around Norway to learn more about the craft last year. Mindy


dabbles in a bit of everything, painting, resin art, graphic design…We will try everything. As a family, we love traveling the world and immersing ourselves in other cultures. What has been the most challenging and most rewarding things about doing this business? One of the most challenging things is dealing with non-customers mocking the products. We never realized how many women feel it is a faux pas for a guy to use specialized products, and expect their husbands to just use the products she has in the shower. But, the next person in line is the most rewarding part of selling: a very serious customer who loves our products, enjoys looking and smelling good and seriously appreciates making Barbarian part of their daily routine.

What advice would you give to someone interested in starting a handmade business? Once you have a great product that people want, we think that a logo and label designs are key. It took a long time to come up with a logo and labels that match the brand products, but it pays off. A key for someone just getting started would be to take advantage of the small business development centers. They are really helpful and don’t cost anything to get ideas or direction from. Ultimately, a good business takes time. A lot of time. We are people that love to stay busy, so it works great for us. The best part is the great customers that make all the time we have invested in our products so worth it!

BarbarianSupply.com

Where can people find your work this holiday season? Locally to Fargo, we are available at Unglued – which happens to be Mindy’s favorite store! Also, since moving to Willmar, Minn., Mindy is working with a local store and organizing maker markets and community events. The next market is Nov 15 and 16 at the mall in Willmar. How can our community help your business grow? We love being part of local communities and in small shops. We have had difficulty getting Barbarian products featured in salons, so we would absolutely love it if you would recommend your favorite Barbarian products to your favorite barber!

belonging ISN’T A DESTINATION

Faithful Readers: As we enter this month filled with reflection and gratitude, I wanted to hear from someone that I am grateful for having met in my early community engagement years. These times of uncertainty were not the easiest but being around him and getting to know him made me feel more at home because he made me feel like I belonged here. It is with great honor and pleasure that I present to you James Whirlwind Soldier. Society would describe him as a mixedrace Sicangu Lakotah registered with the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

“As I experienced certain sensory input patterns, my mental pathways have been accustomed to them. The input is eventually anticipated, and even missed when absent.” - Lt. Commander Data, USS Enterprise

F

argo is a very welcoming place. Whether it’s 1 Million Cups or Brewhalla or Bluestem, you will find people who are happy to see you. And in these places, when talking to those who are happy to see us, our conversations have their own momentum and trajectory. That’s how we know we belong; these interactions have lives of their own. But of course, there are also those other experiences, where we feel like an outsider, or at best, an imposter. The subject of belonging is especially confusing for a half-breed like me. My mother is white, and my father is Lakota. I’ve been referred to as an Apple. It means that I’m red on the outside and white on the inside, that I’m not a real Indian. That I don’t belong. Truth be told, I’m actually not that red on the outside, I’m more of a light brown. Or maybe a jaundiced olive. I’ve also been referred to as a Pretendian. I’m reminded that I’m not THAT dark or that I “don’t act Indian.” Well-wishers ask me why Natives would “choose to live that way” or why they “won’t pick themselves up” because they feel safe asking me things that they wouldn’t dare ask a “real Indian.” They feel safe making racist jokes in front of me. Or they will criticize Native people and say, “but I’m not talking about you.” The problem is that you are talking about me. But you are also telling me that I’m not Indian enough.

You’re saying that my mind is betraying my heart. In spite of my Apple status, the U.S. government says I actually AM a real Indian because of my blood quantum. It’s a fancy pseudo-objective way of defining Native-ness. But this just confuses me more. It was made clear early in my education that I was not white enough for the whites, and not Native enough for the Natives. And sometimes I was too Native for the whites and too white for the Natives. As is often the case, my acceptance was more about who I wasn’t rather than who I was. Because of all this ambiguity, I was able to skip along the border between the two ethnicities, and in the process, not belong to either. This served me well for a while, but forced me to ask, “whom should I be?” and not “who am I really?” So, to whom do I belong? What box do I check? The government says that my blood quantum qualifies me to check the Native box. But when you’re both, what do you do? Do you choose based on how you feel that day? Do you roll the dice? Do you listen to those around you who are so quick to tell you what you are and are not? My conceptualization of belonging relied on how I defined myself and with what demographic I felt most connected to. As an adolescent, belonging felt like a choice. I belong to a group because that is where I want to be. But then I grew up. As certain doors opened for me and others closed, I recognized that I wasn’t in control of where I belonged. Sure, my persistence could inevitably lead to acceptance by a group. But the final decision to offer belonging comes from others, on their terms. Belonging doesn’t come from blood quantum or being qualified to check

a certain box. Belonging comes from others valuing your presence and contribution. Belonging is feeling like part of a group because you ARE part of a group. We all want to feel a sense of belonging. Of inclusion. Belonging and inclusion come from others accepting us as part of their group until the line between them and us blurs and disappears. As Commander Data of “Star Trek” said, it comes from those around us recognizing and anticipating our input patterns and missing those input patterns when they are gone. In this way, we cannot control our own sense of belonging. It can only come from the community and the people that care for us. So, alas, we are only partially responsible for our own sense of belonging, regardless of how much we want to be part of any group. But that doesn’t mean we’re helpless. We can do two important things! 1. Fake it ‘til you make it! There are so many amazing groups, associations and clubs in the Fargo-Moorhead area if you want to belong, show up! Contribute! Engage! There is something for everybody, but you can’t win if you don’t play. 2. Belonging is a universal human desire. Everybody else wants it as badly as we do. Everybody else feels like an outsider. Do your part to make others feel welcome. Listen intently to those around you. Appreciate their contribution and make them feel welcomed. So, yeah, I’m an Apple. But when I ask the question again, “to whom do I belong?” I say I belong to my aunties and uncles. I belong to all my brothers and sisters. I belong to my mother. I belong to my friends. I belong to my wife and my doggies. I belong to the organizations that I serve. I belong to Fargo and Moorhead. And they belong to me.

Each one of the releases from Whiskey Myers has been bigger and bigger — following their breakout third album, 2014’s Early Morning Shakes, their most recent record, Mud, climbed to No. 4 on Billboard’s country charts in 2016. jadepresents.com Sanctuary Events Center 670 4th Ave N.

THELASTPAGE

k9 crew

We discussed K9 Crew and it’s importance in our community with Executive Director Ellen Solberg. What is K9 Crew and how does it impact Fargo-Moorhead? K9 Crew is a non-profit focused on building confidence in struggling youth through the care and training of dogs. It is a one-year-long program for the kids to receive a professional dog training education, mentorship, and opportunities for character/skill-building. The background of K9 Crew kids is

often one filled with depression, anxiety, struggles with autism, struggles with bullying, sexual trauma, neglect, suicide attempts, etc. K9 Crew also partners with animal shelters, by taking in some of the animals that aren’t being adopted. The kids train those animals obediently, modify any undesirable behaviors, and then we re-adopt them out. What is the mission of K9 Crew? K9 Crew is a veteran founded and veteran and NDSU student-operated organization. We exist in the realm of prevention services. K9 Crew believes in guiding our community’s youth early on into making good decisions, to mitigate the need for help and rehabilitation later on. Where is K9 Crew planning to go in the future? Our near-future goals are to find a better training facility for the program to operate in--something larger and more accommodating. Our long term goals include opening up several chapters of

K9 Crew around the Midwest and then the United States. Our goal overall is to reach as many kids as possible. For the kids specifically, what kind of positive impact does K9 Crew have on them? The biggest progress that we’ve seen over time is in the K9 Crew kids, who leave after a year with confidence, communication skills and a more positive outlook on life. Some of our kids have lessened the number of prescription medications they’re on and some of them have stood up to or even made friends with their bullies. How You Can Help K9 Crew Despite what people may think, we are pretty full with both kids and dogs. At this moment, we are in need of sponsors for Giving Hearts Day. We’re always in need of people who are willing to organize and execute fundraising events. Any motivated, passionate person ready to volunteer who knows about running a nonprofit can definitely join our team!

ounded by former Cass County Drug Task Force analyst Joe Fluge, K9 Crew is a vital resource to at-risk youth in our community. Fluge is a certified dog trainer and used this passion to help combat addiction in young people. While many turn to addiction and harmful behaviors as a way to confront challenges, Fluge believes dog training is a way to combat that in young people.
