From our attractions and restaurants to our colorful museums, there’s something for everyone here in Keystone. Until recently, there was one thing missing from our lineup: a brewery.
Luckily, Last Mile Brewery from Rapid City has arrived and filled the niche. Their location here in Keystone is a taphouse, but most of the brews on tap are their own. From their crowd-favorite Honey Kolsch made from local honey to a classic Hazy IPA, Last Mile Brewery has delicious beer that’ll satiate any taste. If you find you can’t quite decide what beer to grab a pint of, they’ll happily hook you up with a flight of four 5oz beers. No matter what pint you grab, it’ll quench your thirst; Last Mile Brewery believes in offering familiar styles and doing them impeccably well.
Beyond the tap pulls, Last Mile Brewery keeps a selection of domestic beer on hand, as well as offerings from a local winery. If you’re looking for something non-alcoholic, they have sodas available. Besides their beverage selection, you’ll also find a great pizza menu. They have crowd pleasers like pepperoni or Hawaiian, but also a buffalo chicken pizza worth going out of the way for. Have a picky eater in your midst? You can grab an uncrustable — a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without crust — with a side of chips. They also have snacks like popcorn or candy, and a stash of ice cream sandwiches to savor on a hot afternoon.
Last Mile Brewery not only treats your taste buds, they’ll make you so comfortable you’ll want to stick around for a while. Their main level hosts plenty of seating, whether it’s just you or your entire extended family. The deck looks out over Keystone and offers ample people watching opportunities, or you can watch helicopters fly in and out of a nearby tour company. Upstairs, they offer comfortable couches you can lounge in or pull up a board game, all while enjoying views of the beautiful Black Hills out the picture window.
What makes Last Mile Brewery a must-do on your family vacation is the combination of their expertly crafted beverages, tasty pizza, and location. Just downstairs from the taproom is the Keystone Fun Zone, where you can enjoy a mirror maze, over 40 arcade games, and their 3D Dragon Blast game. You can even take a beer from Last Mile Brewery downstairs with you. Whether you join in the fun or watch from afar, you can do it with a cold beverage in hand. It’s like taking your family to Dave and Busters, but with a bit of the Old West flair Keystone is known for.
Keystone is a great place to base your family’s adventures in the Black Hills, and we know when you’re here you’ll make monumental memories together. When you’re out and about, we hope you also take some time to kick back, relax, and appreciate the view. If you head up to Last Mile Brewery, you can do all of that with a beverage in hand — and if you ask us, summer just doesn’t get any better than that.
