Overview
More
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 such as chokeberries, buffaloberries, and rosehips to 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.
