Brew takes center stage at Swiftel event

Modified: Friday, Dec 7th, 2012

Beer culture is brewing in Brookings. Sure, suds have always been popular in this college town. But now itís taking on a life of its own.

Local bars and restaurants are offering more varieties on tap all the time. One Brookings business, Heist Brewing Company, is creating craft ales and selling them to bars and restaurants throughout the region. Another brewer will open the cityís very first brewpub, Wooden Legs Brewing Co., on Fifth Street in downtown Brookings this spring. South Dakota State University students and staff have started their very own brew club, and the community has a slew of home-based brewers, who are mixing up batches of homemade beer in their basements and garages.

And this weekend, the Swiftel Center is hosting a new event thatís combining all things beer. The Brookings Brew Expo will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.
