'Frühlingfest' fest; spring beer-tasting festival in KOTA Territory

It was a treat for your taste buds. A number of local and national brewers set up shop in downtown Rapid City Saturday afternoon.

The first ever 'Frühlingfest' fest, or spring fest, gave people the chance to sample 30 types of beer in Main Street Square. Megan Whitman, executive director of Main Street Square, says beer tasting, music, and local craftsmen is the perfect way to bring spring to downtown. Whitman says this event was created to substitute for the brewing community's Bierbörse, which was ruined by the October blizzard. "Bierbörse is about twice the size of Frühling fest and the brewing community asked 'Hey we would really like to have another event,' and so we developed Frühling fest to kinda meet that demand," said Whitman.

Entrance to the event was free, but $20 got people unlimited beer samples. Whitman say it may become an annual event.
