The Green Flash Brewery was defiantly not what I was expecting. Surrounded by huge business buildings and corporate parks the brewery is nestled inside a business park just off a main drag in a northern park of SD. It was down pouring when we got there so there wasn't many folks around even for a Friday afternoon (close to happy hour), but there ere about a dozen or so 'business casual' gentleman and ladies unwinding after a hard day in the office.

The brewery was extremely clean, almost to the point that I was questioning if beer was actually brewed at this location, but alas. it was. I got a flight of very hoppy fresh beers (some one off's I've never seen before). PalateWrecker was the freshest I've ever had it and far better then the bottled version I'd had previously. The bar tender was gracious about answering a few questions on what was in the barrels on the wall (saisons mostly) and the other staff on hand where nice (even talked to a brewer at the door before running into the rain)

There was a food truck but skipped it in lou of our next stop. In all I'm glad we wen't, but can't say I'd ever make a return visit.

I am starting to get really tired of tap rooms without anywhere to sit. My mind flashes back to that movie with Joe Namath eating food, as he pretends to shop, as he walks through some second rate grocery store. Having to stand to enjoy a beer probably lessen the quality of beer but who really knows, just thinking out loud.

What a great place for a beer. Really nice vibe and a great selection of beers, including the newly acquired Alpine Brewery. I went for the tour, $5 with 4 tastings. We had West Coast IPA, Hop Red, Le Freak and the Stout. The guide was informative and have lots of history with basic breeding information. There is a food truck parked at the door, unfortunately I did not partake.

Atmosphere - Very cool, brewery and ware house are open to the bar area, did not make it to the patio because there were so many people in there.

Beer - Brewery only beers plus guest beers. When I was there they had 4 Alpine Brewery beers on tap.

Food - Nothing while I was there, heard they had food trucks on the weekend.

Parking was a challenge, small lot that is gated in an industrial park.

This is a very nice space with great outdoor seating. The staff rocks. The tour is well worth the time. It takes about an hour but the guides are a lot of fun.
