MAY FEATURED BREWER:
CROW PEAK BREWING CO.
“When my wife and I started the business in 2007, our number one goal was to make good beer, and our second objective was to always be a part of the Spearfish community and contribute,” said Crow Peak Brewing Company co-founder and head brewer Jeff Drumm.
The brewery works to be involved mainly through sponsoring events like the Dakota Five-O, an annual mountain bike race.
“We’ve been involved in that even before the brewery was open,” said Drumm. “That’s been ongoing for 15-plus years.”
But mountain biking isn’t the only event emphasis for Crow Peak.
“We also support the arts like Matthews Opera House, and we sponsor the Canyon Acoustic Series,” added Drumm. “We’re all about giving back to the community and just appreciating the people that have supported us through the years.”
To do so, the brewery holds fundraisers for people in need.
When one of Crow Peak’s regular patrons suffered an unfortunate accident snowboarding at Terry Peak, things were looking tough for the customer.
“He’s fine, but his medical bills were sky high,” said Drumm. “We just did a fundraiser to help him get funds to defray the cost of his medical costs.”
This month, Crow Peak will start hosting live summer musical artists again after canceling performances for 2020.
“We’re just getting back in the groove of having social events and people can actually come out and enjoy music.”
