David Duma, former Marine and owner of Gideon’s Brewery located Downtown, in the heart of Bismarck. Gideon’s first started in an industrial shop, located in Lincoln ND. Since the day of opening, Gideon’s has experienced several changes and redesigns to provide our guests an engaging experience while sipping on a tasty small batch craft brew. This required transitioning from the plastic conical fermenter tanks to temperature controlled stainless steel fermenters. These new tanks also provide a more consistent tasting beer because the fermentation process is actually controlled. With upgrading to bigger and better fermenters, David expanded the whole brewery and changed locations. On November 1st 2019, Gideons transferred our location to downtown Bismarck, ND. Immediately after opening, the Gideon’s brewing team started experimenting with new styles and flavors by brewing small test batches. Within months of reopening, Gideon’s brewed over 100 different new and exciting brews while expanding our 8 taps to 17. With 17 taps and an ever-rotating selection of new brews, Gideon’s has released over 600 different selections since reopening in November of 2019. Anytime you come and visit us, Gideon’s will always stive to provide you with a new experience! It’s not just about the beer tho, Gideon’s believes in fostering an engaging environment where the crafter in us all can be shared and enjoyed. Where you come for the brews but stay for the craft, and strangers become friends.
Live Life. Enjoy the Craft. Feed the Lion!

Story of Gideon
Gideon was a tribal leader about 1080 B.C. who led a group of 300 men against the enormous Midianite army. Gideon and his men carried only trumpets and lit torch lamps inside water pitchers, to conceal the light. Gideon and his 300 men surrounded the camp in the night, broke the pitchers to shine the light, yelled a battle cry and blew the trumpets. This created a frenzy and panic which led to the defeat the Midianites. It just goes to show that it doesn’t always take the bigger army to win just like it doesn’t take a large brewery to make great beer! Cheers
