SERVING MINOT, ND SINCE 1994
Good Drinks, Good Music. Good People
Established in 1994 as North Dakota's first non-smoking bar, The Blue Rider takes its namesake from the native German and Russian emigrant impressionist art group, Der Blaue Reiter. It's eccentric decor and laid back vibe makes for an attractive hangout for anyone. Fair prices, free wifi, 16 beers on tap, signature nachos, and friendly service is standard. There's an outdoor patio for sipping in the sun, trivia every Wednesday, live music often and a deep enough record collection to satisfy any music taste. Throw a record on, pull up a stool, sip a local craft beer or a pint of $3 Hamm's - everyone is welcome at The Blue!
Eccentric Décor. Laid Back Vibes.
BEER - WINE - SOME OTHER STUFF...
Our drink list features; 16 beers on tap, wine in a box, fancy wine not in a box, hard seltzer’s, and sometimes unique concoctions created by our bartenders. It’s a bit hit-&-miss...but we have fun and everything is served with pride and zero pretension.
16 cold beers on tap rotate often so you’ll always find something new that fits your taste - especially if your taste is PBR
We serve house wines by the glass and offer an intimate selection of organic wines by the bottle. Can’t finish the bottle? Take it with you! (Thank you North Dakota laws)
