So far so good, but it kinda sucks riding alone. The other 2 guys I was heading out with each had something come up that prevented from riding with me.

leaving Friday morning at 5:30...setting up tent by noon! Then drinking beer at the upstairs bar at OEJ's, in the yard, Crow Peak, or the Firehouse.

Actually, no. Funeral and medical reasons.

Made my 1st overnight stop in Mitchell. Longest I've been on a bike ever.

Riverfront, are all those places in Sturgis? Is there a good place to go for good beer? I'll drink the BMC but Id prefer something else. Any local micros?

No....

One Eyed Jacks in downtown Sturgis, you can find some better beers in the 2nd and 3rd floor bars...check out the taps and always pay attention to the coolers behind the bars to see what the may have.

Crow Peak Brewing in Spearfish

Firehouse Brewing in Rapid City

There is some sort of English Pub in Rapid as well that has a bunch of taps..haven't been there in the past but it's on the list this year.

the yard...this is where we camp....a yard...about 2 blocks off the main drag. We go to the Sturgis liquor store and stock up on Crow Peak beers for evening drinking before heading out on the town.

Where are you staying?

stay away from Firehouse if you like good (or decent) beer. I was born & raised in Rapid City. I've had their "beer". but Crow Peak in Spearfish is a must! we used to drive from Moorcroft, WY to Spearfish quite a bit & I'd had tons of growlers filled. mostly Pile-O-Dirt Porter or 11th Hour IPA.

I'll have to see if I can get some time to get to spearfish. It may be out of our circle of things to do.
