City Brew Hall’s historic building was once home to the City Hall offices for the city of Wahpeton.

City Brew’s space showcases vintage elegance with contemporary finesse.
It’s not the space alone that brings couple after couple through the doors of City Brew. The restaurant offers a made-from-scratch gastropub menu—or, bar food with a twist! The event center offers a menu from Brew Catering, a sister company, where the chef-driven team prepares made-from-scratch meals that not only taste good but have a focus on beautiful plating as well. To arrange the day to be as perfect as it can be, all couples hosting their special day at City Brew Hall can invite a few guests to a big group tasting to try multiple meal options, appetizers, and wine and cocktails.
