We jokingly like to say that Sioux Falls itself decided it needed a better beer scene back in 2013. It was during that spring that a freak ice storm got to thinking that Matt Hastad’s house had a little too much electricity and heat for modern comfort’s sake. Being one adverse to freezing and moping in the dark, he asked his friend Jason Davenport if he could muster a spare couch. Jason charged the hefty fee of a couple gourmet meals and a little knowledge of that funny home brewing hobby Matt had picked up in college. The two stewed, brewed (often times literally), and came to the conclusion that Sioux Falls needed a marquee brewery like so many of her rival cities had already embraced. A few good batches (and a few not-so-good ones too), taught them that in order to make their odd little hobby into a sustainable business, they’d need to get more precise.
Enter Tyler Jepperson, Matt’s former college buddy and medical lab biochemist. When the wheels get to turning in Matt’s head, they travel towards Tyler’s brain, for a final destination with Jason’s hands. As such, we like to think our beer is equal parts inspiration, science, and mechanical knowhow. After building an incredible team of business advisers and friends, they settled upon their exciting location at 8th and Railroad in the city they called home and never looked back.
