WoodGrain to celebrate craft beer with mini festival

From staff reports

WoodGrain Brewing Co. is throwing its first “mini” beer festival Saturday.

The patio party will feature beers from almost 20 breweries in Sioux Falls, the state and the region.

“It’s more so an opportunity to try what people haven’t had before,” manager Quentin Robertson said.

The festival will run from 1 to 6 p.m. at the brewery, 101 S. Phillips Ave., with entertainment continuing into the night.

The brewery wanted to close down the street for the festival but decided the effort of pursuing that with City Hall was too much, Robertson said. “So we have this great patio and just decided to take advantage of that.”

Admission is $20 and includes five tokens for beer. Additional tokens are $2. A limited number of VIP passes are being sold in advance for $20. In addition to getting five tokens, VIP guests can arrive an hour earlier, taste WoodGrain’s newly tapped barrel-aged rye saison and take home a glass.

Bread & Circus Sandwich Kitchen will be grilling on the patio, and three food trucks – Hunny & Bunny, The Pit Stop and Antojitos Latinos – will be selling food.

Patio games will include beer Plinko with prizes and giant versions of Jenga and Connect 4. Musicians Elizabeth Hunstad, Mike Muller and Casey Fodness will perform. Basement Dwellers Improv Comedy will wrap up the night with a show from 9 to 11 p.m.
