The architect was The GFC Group of Northern California.Rapid City, South Dakota contractors include: Skyline Engineering, mechanical and electrical design; building contractor GBA; Action Mechancial, plumbing, heating and cooling; Gedko, electrical.
Ground breaking was April 1, 2013.
Sandi crafts beer in 7-barrel fermenters (x 31 gal per barrel = 217 gallons). This allows her to keep batches small enough for maintaining microbrew quality. The fermenters are state-of-the art and custom-designed for Sandi’s beer-making style. It’s thrilling to see all of the custom equipment delivered and installed.
The Grain Silo was installed on October 15, 2013 and serves as an important landmark to Miner Brewing.
Salvaged windows have been installed between the Tap Room and our production area, allowing our
guests to view the entire brewing process and further enhance their experience.
Mine rock and salvaged timber from the “Old Standby Mine” in Rochford are used in the landscaping.
Metal panels, salvaged from the roof of the Wool N Stuff building, line the walls of production.
Our Rapid City Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting was October 30, 2013. It took us six months to build our brewery and we look forward to sharing it with you.
