Honestly, you could close your eyes and never know you were not at a great craft beer bar in any major U.S. city. Gorgeous woodwork in a large room with a high ceiling. Superior lineup of regional breweries, along with a handful of foreign imports and respectable choices from the important coasts (California, Oregon and Michigan). Huge central chalkboard plus video screens to help guide your beer selections. Friendly, knowledgeable and attractive bartenders. Dining lineup looked decent but we wanted to try Tallyís Silver Spoon down the street (and werenít disappointed, though its beer list was very limited). Donít miss it on the way to Mount Rushmore.

Ok, my rating may be high but my wife and I had the best time here. We went into the basement which was cozy and comfortable. Beer selection is excellent, pizza was very enjoyable, and the service was unsurpassed. We sat for hours and just soaked in the rest. We will definitely come back.

This is an attractive pub in downtown Rapid City. The beers on tap during our visit were mostly Odell and Deschutes (including The Abyss!) with two local beers from Crow Peak. The bottle list was decent, with a fair selection from Belgium, including about 15 sour/lambics. While there were no really unusual offerings, it was still an impressive list of draft and bottles, given the rather remote location. Pizza is the only food option, but they are inventive pies. The one we had was very good. A huge negative for this place is that the beers are only available in full size pours (16 oz for most). This makes it impossible to sample many of the beers they have on tap. Thatís a pity.

I must say for SD this place is pretty impressive. Located in downtown Rapid City with ample parking. Lots of brick and wood in this place with dim lighting. Great service and good pizza for this part of the country. Very nice draft list with mostly reagonal stuff and a few nice special releases. Must stop.

Fantastic local pub with an ever changing selection of tap beer. Staff is incredibly helpful and always pleasant. Just started food a few months ago and the flat-bread pizzaís compliment the brews perfectly. Keep it up guys, doing fantastic.
