Yankton is excited to welcome its newest craft brewery to the block!
Backspace Brewing Co. started very true to its name. In the garage of one of the founding members as they created their first recipes and started to brew all-grain recipes for beer. Now a few years later, some of those same recipes will be among a few of the first beers they serve! These brews truly occupied the backspace of their minds, as they’d refine them and tweak them over several brew days and handcraft the best beer that they could – just a few gallons at a time on their days off.
The founding members originally had a different name picked out for Backspace Brewing Co., but early issues with trademarking led to a hurried meeting to find a new name. They came up with a few ideas, but none that really stuck or stood out to them, they eventually settled on Backspace Brewing Co. as kind of a backup plan. Quickly they realized that it told a lot of their story and inspired them as well! From humble beginnings in a residential garage to creating a small commercial brewery from scratch that would allow them to bring those recipes to a greater audience. The Backspace Brewing Co. story will always be about craft brewing occupying the backspace of the founders’ daily lives until they could make their dream a reality.
Expect to find more information about the owners/brewers on their website in the near future. Until then, please enjoy the photos that show how the old ‘backspace’ was built into the pilot brewery that is being used to refine their recipes until construction is complete!
