After being founded in 2008 as the Bismarck area’s local homebrew club, members decided they wanted a way to showcase the quality of their homebrew to other craft beer enthusiasts.  In 2009, the Muddy River Mashers held the first Oktoberfest.  Everybody had so much fun that it was added to the club list of annual events and became a part of the local fabric.  We are now on our way to celebrating our 12th Oktoberfest in 2021!

Last year, our membership ranks grew to the point of having 24 hand crafted beers, tied for our largest amount of entries.  In addition to the entered beers, ‘volunteer’ beers the members donated for everyone’s enjoyment!  Thank you for supporting us!
