What’s a Gandy Dancer?

A gandy dancer was the name of railroad workers who laid track by pounding spikes in a rhythmic cadence. Since we are located next the railroad yards in downtown Sioux Falls, we felt it was appropriate to honor these hard-working people with our brewery’s name. We also suspect that the guys who worked that hard would really appreciate a great beer.
