HARTFORD, S.D. (KSFY) - Beer lovers get ready -- a new brewery will soon be opening its taps.

On Monday, the Buffalo Ridge Brewing Company broke ground in Hartford.

"It'll bring new life to our downtown here which hasn't seen a new business in over 40 years, constructed brand new and will give our folks here in town, our residents, an additional activity to do with their families," Jesse Fonkert, Hartford Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development director, said.
