About
Located in the heart of the Black Hills, Miner Brewing Company produces craft beers that are both traditional in nature, and yet truly "South Dakota." Brewmaster Sandi’s goal is to craft beers that people can enjoy every day. We want to showcase as much of the uniqueness of South Dakota as possible using local ingredients when we can. From local honey to handpicked wild fruits and indigenous yeast and hops, it all comes from South Dakota; even the wheat for our Wheat beer comes from Sandi’s family farm near Mobridge, SD. We emphasize keeping beer fresh and heavily rely on the pure mountain water we get directly from our well near the brewery in Hill City. The water is the most important ingredient in crafting our Miner Brewing craft beers, it’s from the water that we get our unique flavors and distinctive style. See what’s new on tap and enjoy a flight, pint, or growler to go today. Our winery, Prairie Berry Winery, is located next door.

While on a family vacation in the Hills, my husband and I (and our two young boys) came here for supper one evening. The beer was delicious! We ordered food from the Green Chili Food Truck (so good!) and parked ourselves at a picnic table on the spacious green lawn. Our kids were able to play and run while we enjoyed our drinks and food - amazing! The staff was also super friendly and accommodating. A great stop while in the Hills!

We stopped at Prairie Berry Winery, then stopped at Miner Brewing since it was at the bottom of the hill. The place was slightly busy, but we were waited on quickly. There’s no seating inside, but they had some great places to sit outside, either under a tent, or in a grassy area under umbrellas. The weather was perfect for an outdoor tasting. Although I am not a beer drinker, my husband enjoyed the copper ale he ordered, and I enjoyed the atmosphere. Prices are average for craft beer.

Miner Brewing was a stop on a mini-tour of breweries in the greater area. Glad I came through and highly enjoyed the facilities, the beer and the nice friendly staff who helped me make some good selections.

They don't have flight options, but do offer half pints.

Would definitely return.

Thanks again, Miner Brewing.

On our way back to Rapid City from Crazy Horse we took the time to stop at the Miner Brewing Company after hitting up the winery next door. We did a sampling of their beers and found the flavors to be a hit or miss. We had a few that we really enjoyed and one that was certainly not our jam. Their tasters were good size and they allowed you to sample a good amount of the beers . The staff was friendly and they have a great grass area for fun outdoor lounging.

I'm not a big beer fan, but we ended up here when the winery next door was too busy. My husband and I got a beer flight of several different types of beers (you choose the # of glasses in your flight as it is charged by the glass and not a flat rate.) We sat out on the patio and chatted with a staff member and withother customers out there--it was a pleasant time. My husband, who is the beer drinker of the family, didn't care for the beers as much as I did! I got a stout called Vampire Goggles (hey, it was October so I thought it sounded Halloweenish.} I really liked this one! All in all it was a nice place to spend a couple of hours after hiking most of the day.

Miner Brewing has a great facility, fun, friendly atmosphere and great service. I really, really wish I had liked the beer more. The trend seems to be to make everything sweet or fruity and Miner seems to be catering to that trend. Even with a really wide selection, we noticed a sweet finish (honey or molasses) on pretty much everything, even the beers presented as standard ales and lagers. Several of our samples were almost completely flat as well.

It's all personal taste, so take it for what it's worth, but it seems to me that Miner is working so hard to make sure their beer has the right amount of fruit/sugar in it that they're forgetting to build a solid beer in the first place.

This place came highly recommended but I am sorry to say that we were far from impressed. We went to eat, not drink which must have been our mistake. There were lots of drinks to choose from, but not so much food.

Here you wait on yourself. You walk in, give your order and pay, and then wait for your food. When you get your food you go outside to find a table. I think we were just the wrong crowd for this place.

Every time we come to SD we have to stop here !!! The beer the staff are awesome! We made a visit in February 2022 and rented one of the igloos. The food was amazing the beer was just as good and the igloo was very warm !!! I would absolutely rent the igloo again if we come during the "COLD" season. Don't miss this place it is worth the stop.

We were hoping to grab a beer with a meal but this place really only offers beer and some soft drinks.
We pulled up to this place which is next to Prairie Winery.

We would have stayed if they had a food option. It seemed to be well attended, but it didn’t meet our needs so we moved on.

Stopped in for a quick rest stop on the way back to Custer. Large beer and wine selection here. The staff was friendly and the large patio was relaxing. The seating in front had a nice mountain view and the flowers were fragrant. The 1919 root beer was the best I had ever had. I got a pint glass to take home. Great place if you bring your own food.
