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.

Best place to sample all of Green Flash beers at an affordable price
The brewery visit is interesting but not different that any other brewery visit
The burgers from the food truck in the "garden" is worth to try

It's nice to know that Green Flash owns Alpine. A two in one special Visit. Nice spot with a great selection. Decent vibe and mixed crowd. Would definitely come back and visit.

Been here 3 times. Two times during normal operation and for Treasure Chest 2015. Treasure Chest was a well run event with a good variety of beers and food to pair with them. Each staff member that I have encountered were very pleasant.

Hit there midweek in the afternoon. Not too crowded but also no place to sit in a large open room at one end of the brewery. Bar service was good and very informative about the 28 beers they had on tap at the time including some from Alpine.
Great place to check out a large selection of their beers but nothing special.

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.
