I'm an IPA fan...and they had 3 of the best I've ever had. Good prices and a really cool atmosphere. If I lived in SD, I'd be a regular. Great place to spend a Friday evening.

The brewery and tasting room are situated in a business park area. There isn't a ton of parking. We parked up the street and walked down. The bar area is cool and has alot of info about the beers available. We got the sampler, and what a sampler! We got alot of beer for 2 bucks a taste! There is a great outside seating area. We sat and just enjoyed the beer. Great place to sip a beer in the afternoon.

This brewery was first on our list for our Sunday fun day of beers. We got there just in time (a small tour bus pulled up as we stood in line). We did the brew tour and our group was nice and small. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. You can tell he loved his job! After the tour we had a few tastings on the patio. We tried a few adventurous beers like the Thai chili beer but that proved to be better as a "shot" than a full glass of beer. But it was interesting. We would have stayed longer but had to pace ourselves for the rest of the day. Definitely worth visiting again when we return to SD!

Needed to meet a couple of colleagues after work and suggested we go here since it is near where I live. Not too crowded on a Monday evening, so we were able to get a prime seat on the patio. Tried a couple of different beers, but the Sculpin was my favorite. Very relaxed atmosphere in a pleasant office park.

Stopped by here with some family on a Saturday afternoon. The place was packed with several buses dropping people off. Had some really good beers (the wheat was my favorite). Took the tour; it was very informative. They do not sell food, but on the weekends there is a caterer selling food outside.
