Each year, new breweries pop up in the Hills, offering a variety of craft beer and guided tours of their facilities. Many local breweries offer exclusive choices for beer tasting. Watch for both free individual samples and “beer flights”—a rack of four or more testers, usually for purchase. Most breweries will also fill and seal your growler for later.
In summer expect lighter, crisper beers, some of which feature locally grown, hand-chosen ingredients.
Many local wineries and breweries host a number of events throughout the year, too. Visitors can experience live music, stand-up comedy shows—complete with complimentary tastings—and themed food-and-wine pairing dinners. See our calendar and plan your visit during the perfect event. Or reserve a venue for your next reunion.
A Unique Flavor
Brewmasters in the Black Hills claim it’s the local water that gives their beer its unique flavor—making these craft brews one-of-a-kind drinks that you don’t want to miss.
Don’t Spoil it
Remember the elements when purchasing your take-home beverages; a hot car can ruin them. If you have a full day of sightseeing ahead of you, ask the wineries and breweries you visit about their options for shipping your purchase to your home. Then, you will be able to enjoy the rest of your trip, worry free.
