Our goal while visiting SD was to try as many local beers as possible. Of the many places we went to while visiting SD, Monkey Paw was one of our favorites. We couldn't get enough of the Cornelius DIPA and their Howler IPA was great as well. You know a place is good when you just stop in for one and end up staying a few hours.
Interestingly we went here towards the end of our trip partially because we had not gotten an opportunity to try their IPA elsewhere during the week. The bartender said that was because they couldn't really keep up with supply so they keep it in house.
We ended up ordering a cheese steak and fries from the menu, and it was delicious.
If your looking for a local SD beer experience, this should fit the bill. We would go back on a future trip.

We walked here from the Mission Brewery (about 8 blocks) to get some food on our stomach after a two-hour tasting at Mission. It's not in the best part of SD but there are worse places to be in a big city. The place was welcoming and there was plenty of seating, both at the bar and the eating area.
Getting fast service here meant going up to the bar to order which was fine with me. The staff was friendly, helpful and the food arrived quickly. We had pulled pork sammiches and their piggyback fries, which are criss-cut and topped with shredded BBQ pork, cheese and something else I can't remember. All the food was very good, appealing to look at and good quantity. We a chose a few of their Monkey Paw brews to go with lunch and we were not disappointed. The Howler IPA was great as was the Chinook (APA) my wife had.
Overall a very good experience and we will definitely go back.
