The Wooden Legs Brewing Company name is tongue in cheek homage to Judge Wilmot Wood Brookings. Judge Brookings is a significant figure in history of South Dakota. The county and city were named after him although he only visited the city twice.

In February 1858, Brookings rode a horse from Sioux Falls to the Yankton area during a blizzard. His horse slipped and fell into Split Rock Creek in the freezing weather. Brookings made it safely to Yankton, but his wet legs had suffered such severe frostbite they both needed to be amputated. He spent the rest of his life using a pair of squeaky, wooden legs.

  • Stopped here for pizza and a pint after a long day of driving and loved it. Great local beer and cider selection and delicious pizza. Cool atmosphere, I’m sure it’s real lively during the school year.

  • This is a neat space with great thin crust pizza and a huge selection of beers to choose from. Pictured is the Cuban pizza. We also had a Buffalo Chicken and a Pepperoni pizza. All were good.
  • The brewpub was great. Wonderful beers and the comedy show on Nov 12 was really funny.
