Event Details

6th Meridian Hops presents a new celebration of good food, good drink and good times: The Swinged Cat Aliment & Ale Fest!

What is a Swinged Cat?

In 1890, South Dakota was in the midst of a drought. Mellette was doing everything in his power to keep settlers from leaving the state. On a trip to Chicago for aid, Mellette was met by Moses P. Handy, a friend and newspaperman. Handy asked Mellette, “Well, governor, how is South Dakota?”

Mellette replied, “Oh, South Dakota is a swinged cat, better than she looks.”

And “swinged” was a way of saying singed or burnt.

21 or older for the Fest, tickets $30

Music line up includes Ted and Alice Miller, Mississippi Jake, J. Jeffrey Messerole, and Trap Kit Live Music.
