Repeal Day & Zana’s BDAY!

On December 5th, 1933, Prohibition Ended At Last!

To celebrate the end of this failed experiment, we are throwing a “Speakeasy” themed party. That’s right, dress in your best Flapper and/or Bootlegger clad. Zana was conveniently was born on December 5th, many years after prohibition ended, but very fitting. Bring your dancing shoes, and most whole hearted laughter as we also celebrate Zana’s birthday!

Food & Clothing Drive:

We are hosting a clothing drive in partners with Sharia’s Closet, and a food drive with The Indie Beer Show, benefiting the SD Food Bank to help those in need.
Clean out your closets, bathrooms and pantry as we collect:

  • Clothing (mens, womens infants, toddlers, teenagers)
  • Hygiene Products (toothbrush, toothpaste, diapers, soap, shampoo)
  • Bedding (blankets, pillows, sheets)
  • Laundry Supplies (detergent)
  • Non-Perishable Food and Instant Formula

Beer Release & Beer Cocktail Collab:

– Jacob and Zana are at it again to bring you another collaboration with Tribute Pizza, a Pecan Nut Brown Ale, “Totes Contains Pecans”. Tribute Pizza roasted the Pecans in their woodfire oven to achieve cozy aromatics and delicious taste.

We have partnered with Collins and Coupe Cocktail Supply Coto create a Classic Cocktail Themed Beer-Cocktail. Garnish & all! It will be delicious!

My Favorite Murder Beer Release

We’re fans of the podcast My Favorite Murder and the work they do to advocate for and support victims’ rights.

To honor this work and their efforts, we are brewing a special Halloween/My Favorite Murder Beer: Brewed with Gummy Worms & Raspberry. This 7.8% is very sneaky, but we’ll keep you safe. Plus we have candy, because that is not creepy. (#SSDGM)

The Gals won’t be hanging out with us day of (this isn’t an official event for them by any means, it’s just an homage to the work they do, and a chance for us to get together as a community for those in our midst that can use the love and support).

We will be collecting donations to go directly to YWCA Becky’s House Domestic Violence Programs.

All-Grain Homebrewing 101

All-Grain Homebrewing 101 — from equipment needs to recipe selection, mashing, collecting your wort and troubleshooting common issues. This class is designed for brewers of all levels but please note we will not cover the entire brewing process. Rather, we will focus on the key differences in brewing from all-grain with special attention to the mashing process.

All-grain brewing is the process of brewing with base grains rather than malt extract. There are many considerations in moving to this type of brewing. With the right info, all-grain brewing gives you ultimate control over your beers — not to mention it can be incredibly rewarding.

Topics will include:

Why go all-grain?
Equipment options for all-grain homebrewing
Choosing a recipe and ingredients for your first all-grain brew
All-grain water basics
Temperatures, Malt enzymes and Starch conversion
Mashing, Vorlauf and Sparging techniques
Calculating efficiency
Tools and tips to make your all-grain brew day a success
Troubleshooting common issues

Class includes one 8oz. pour from our tasting room

Class length 2 hours Hosted by Sean Watkins & Erick Oropeza
