We ate at the Laughing Sun Brewing Co. on July 12, 2022 and again on July 28, 2022. On July 12, our pulled pork sandwiches and coleslaw were great. When we returned on July 28, the pulled pork sandwiches that we were served consisted of cold meat on soggy buns with bitter-tasting coleslaw. The wait staff on July 12 were friendly and attentive. The wait staff on July 28 appeared bored with working and were not concerned about customer service.

Average with so much Potential. We were passing through the area and decided to check out their bbq. Three of us had brisket, and 1 tried the ribs. While we liked the flavor of the brisket, a couple us didn't like how fatty it was. Having a choice between fatty and lean brisket would have been welcome. We all wanted more sauce on our sandwiches, but there was no sauce on the table. A choice of a couple sauces would have been nice. We all tried their famed cornbread which was dry and crumbly. The best thing on my plate was the kettle potato chips. 5 out of 5 on those, nice and crispy and perfectly seasoned. I might try this spot again if we are back in the area, but hope they might make a few changes first.

We went to the brewery to try their beers and stayed for dinner. We really enjoyed ourselves. The beer and the food (BBQ) were very good. The bar tender went out of his way to explain their beer options to us. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. Their pricing was very reasonable. This was a very enjoyable experience for us.

What a fabulous place!! Great food, fantastic beer (oh that Sinister is delish) and magnificent music venue. I love that I can take my grandkids to see live music. Thank you Laughing Sun! We will see you again and again and again!

I'm so happy we found this place! The beer selection was great. I had the newly released Dropping Cones and loved it. Their BBQ is awesome, the brisket was so tender and flavorful and the pork was delicious as well. If you're in tbe area I would suggest checking them out.

Enjoyed a tasty beer at Laughing Sun! Industrial vibes, lots of seating both indoors and outside. It was a busy night but they had set up a beer tent outside and the lines moved quickly. Wide variety of types of beers and cider offered!

This place has a lot of good beer (personally my favorites were their sours), and their barbeque is amazing. We stopped through quickly and tried a few flights with some burnt ends, and thoroughly enjoyed both. (Definitely get the burnt ends - they were the best I've had.) The dog friendly patio was a big plus, too, especially with the great overhead heater. Would go back!

Great vibe, friendly wait staff, music. We tried the Mac bowls and BBQ sandwich. It was great to sample several home brewed N Dakota made beers. Large truck doors opened up the indoor space to create a casual al fresco experience. There is also patio space.

The selection of beers is not as extensive as some other breweries, but I had a "Red Dwarf" that was quite good. The meal options for vegetarians are quite limited, but I had a good salad and a cup of very cheesy and tasty mac and cheese. I was there with a group of supporters of the North Dakota American Civil Liberties Union.
