The brewing of beer has a long history in South Dakota starting in 1866 when many Germans and other Europeans settled the Northern Plains. They brought the knowledge of farming and turning grain into ale, which resulted in a boom of brewing in the late 1800s until National Prohibition in 1920. This exhibit at the South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum runs through December.
