Canning line launched

Canning line beginning production at Sick-N-Twisted Brewing Company

After many adjustments and fine adjustments the canning line went into production Friday February 12, 2016.
Even though it’s a huge challenge and undertaking, the first cases of Buzz Light were produced at Sick-N-Twisted in Hill City. We’re excited to continue with the production of all our lines of beer.

Testing the equipment

We are getting to know our new equipment.

It took a little preparation and hard work. However, we are now ready to go and testing batches of our favorite beers.

Our crew starts up early every day to get going. We’re all excited and inspired with this sudden growth in size and production.

Taking shape

The brewery expansion is taking shape. The newly prepared space is filled now. With the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally work is suspended. It’s exciting to see all the pieces more or less in place. The electrical system is being prepared.

All the processing tanks have been moved from the shipping containers to the newly remodeled space where they’ll be at home, producing beer in one of very few local craft breweries.

The storage containers have been placed in a corner of the parking lot. Slowly the contents are being inspected. Soon, we’ll be assembling the parts together, technicians will arrive to train our crew.

It’s taking shape . . . slowly.

Much of the existing space is being rearranged and re-purposed to accommodate the expansion this Spring. We’re all excited and wait in anticipation the new installation which should arrive late this Spring. We plan to employ more personnel and technicians that will assist in the preparation and brewing. Hill City and the Black Hills will have something awesome to show.
