The Swinged Cat Aliment & Ale Fest

June 21
6th Meridian Hop Farm, Yankton

Back in 1890, South Dakota was a new state and was under a severe drought crisis. Folks were facing financial ruin, starvation, disease and death. When asked by a Chicago reporter, South Dakota Gov. Mellette responded :
 
"South Dakota is a Swinged Cat, better than she looks."

In the past month we have seen our catering business effectively shut down, breweries boarded up and passing out growlers in alleys out of slide windows, and social media filled with rumors, fear, and accusations.  The world is upside down.

Although there was many discussions to cancel this year's season, we felt more than ever, the spirit of the Swinged Cat was needed. We are in constant monitor of the situation and we are operating with every CDC guideline. A few changes this year:
1. All samples are single serve disposable cups to minimize inter contact.
2. Tables will be spaced out to adhere to distance guidelines.
3. We are limiting the tickets per CDC guidelines.
4. Brewer tents and restrooms will be spaced out to discourage tight queues.
5. If you have any symptom of COVID-19 do not come and contact us.
6. Open sampling -- CDC didn't necessarily recommend this.
