Welcome to the Keg n Cork, the first Irish Pub on the Mississippi. Terry Smart tore down the Friendly Tap in 1973 and over the course of the next year built the current Keg n' Cork, which was completed in 1974. Keg n' Cork has always been a "Cheers " type place where everybody knows your name and is more interested in finding out your story than watching a television.
We have always prided ourselves on keeping the decor as '74 as possible, to match oldest liquor license in Bemidj. You can come in by yourself and feel comfortable as being with friends. Kids and family welcome all day.
