Sturgis craft brewer to build new brewery
STURGIS, S.D. (AP) — A craft brewer plans to build a new brewery, taproom and gift shop on the site of a former campground in Sturgis.
Knuckle Brewing Co. expects to break ground on the 15,000-square-foot brewery this fall and hopes to be brewing more beer by early next year.
The Rapid City Journal reports owner Bryan Carter is also looking at restaurant options for the new facility and other business partnerships at the site. Knuckle Brewing opened at its present location in Sturgis in 2014. A 2016 addition doubled the brewery’s fermentation capacity. But, Carter says that within a year he was running out of beer before the end of the summer season and the Sturgis motorcycle rally.
Carter says their goal is to produce about 5,000 barrels of beer annually at the new brewery.
