“We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great sights/streetscape around South Dakota and the great craft beer that our breweries have to offer,” said Breanna Bissell, co-founder of the local series. “All of our participants complete a 5-K course near each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and enjoys local live music.”
