JUNE FEATURED BREWER:
COVERT ARTISAN ALES & CELLARS
GIVEN THAT COVERT ARTISAN ALES & CELLARS IN SIOUX FALLS OPENED UP IN JUNE OF 2020, THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT A “NORMAL” SUMMER WILL LOOK LIKE FOR THEM.
But owners Stacey and Daniel Berry are preparing their East Bank Depot taproom for the best summer yet, scheduling many events and meals while preparing for their on-year anniversary.
“We’re looking forward to increased activity this summer,” said Stacey. “We’ve got food trucks coming and music coming. Our patio is ready to go. It’s going to be good.”
As summer begins to roll in, Stacey says she is excited to see a rainbow of people come into the taproom and find which beer fits their fancy.
“Sours and wild ales will probably always be our niche, our thing, but we’ve definitely expanded and want people to know we do other things as well,” said Stacey.
Though they’re known mostly for their sours, Stacey emphasizes that they also do IPAs, stouts, pastry stouts, pilsners, and even Belgian blonde ales.
“We really do have something for everyone,” she said.
So with their pride flag hung and even a modified logo to support the movement, Covert is ready to invite people in with open arms.
“We just want people to know that it’s a safe space.”
And with each stop in, beer enthusiasts can find a new favorite.
“We have a different model than a lot of the other breweries,” said Daniel. “We don’t have mainstays. Our menu is always changing.”
The brewery focuses mostly on small batches of a few barrels at a time.
“Since we do a lot of fruit combinations, we change it up quite often,” said Daniel. “I don’t think we’ve ever done the same beer within the same year.”
Project Inclusion | Rainbow Sherbet-Inspired Sour
For the month of June, Pride month, Project Inclusion will be the house tart ale, made with raspberry, key lime, tangerines, and pineapple.
