Sharing a beer with a couple friends will always be a pretty good time. Sharing a beer with over 500 friends, well, that’s always a pretty grand time. Our Grand Opening event at the taproom was held on February 5, and it was easily one of the proudest moments of our entire lives and a dream come true. We are so thankful for the fact that beer lovers from all around were all able to pack into our taproom for a time laughter, fun, music, delicious food—and of course, great beer.
When we had the chance to step back and look at the entire party, it became a sight that we will never forget. We witnessed as people curiously toured through our brewery, helping themselves to Pizza Patrol, Boxcar Beef and Dogs, and a vast assortment of cheeses and pretzels from Dimock Dairy. The sounds of laughter brewing, a musician wailing, and glasses clinging filled the taproom space as every single table was filled with families and friends sharing stories with each other and bonding over a pint of their favorite beer. Being able to witness people bond with each other over something that we work hard to perfect is not only a humbling experience but the reason we come to work every day.
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting us at our Grand Opening event. Thank you for taking a chance on the beers we make and a chance on us as people. We once had a dream that we would, one day, hit a home-run by being able to brew great beer and share it with the great city of Sioux Falls. After every beer we poured out of our taps, we slowly witnessed as our home-run dream turned into a grand slam reality.
