American Craft Beer Week is May 15 to 21, and Miner Brewing Company has planned several events to celebrate all things craft beer. Miner will kick off the week on May 16 with Open Vinyl Day. Guests are encouraged to bring their favorite records, and brewpub staff will play records from both guests and selections from Black Hills Vinyl.
Miner's annual BrewBQ dinner will take place May 18. For more information, visit prairieberry.com/product/event-tickets/miner-brewing-company-brewbq-adult-ticket/.
On May 20, bring your dog to the brewery for Pints & Paws and enjoy a pint or two on Miner's patio or on the lawn.
Miner spokeswoman Jenna Fischer said the brewery will be releasing a couple of new beers during craft beer week but did not elaborate, adding that the details are "top secret."
