Interesting place. I'm not exactly sure of their goal. The place is a store/brewery/beer-bar but none are really very standout. That's not to say it doesn't make for a cool place to have a beer. It's eclectic and fun. The beers were good. There were guest taps from other breweries that rounded out the selection. The barrels as bar stools were attractive but not very functional.
While it was interesting to be able to walk up to their brewing equipment I'm going to guess that they will end that before to long.
Fun but odd, but I guess that's why it's fun.

Mother earth brewery is hidden like other breweries in SD with a pretty big. Tasting room that says they mean business. As soon as you walk in they have a bunch of ingredients like malts and grains that are used for their beer and are sold for homebrewing. The quality of the beer is decent but the service was really good and the people there were friendly. They are also willing to tell you some of the grains that go into the beers they have on tap. The selection was pretty basic according to styles but they did have a little variety of brews to choose from. Definitely a cool place to stop at if your brewery touring in the SD are. Unfortunately they do not have food but you can do plenty of drinking here.

Update (3/28/11): http://motherearthbrewco.blogspot.com/2011/03/rants-and-raves-about-beer-reviews.html
Original Review (8/29/10): Stopped in here after being at Lost Abbey for the Deliverance release.
The place is tucked away in an industrial business park like so many other small breweries these days (Suite H, since it's not currently listed in the address here on BA). The space itself is actually fairly large, which was interesting.
There is a door to a small office type room to the right of the entrance which houses some of the homebrew supplies that Mother Earth sells. A pretty nice selection and pretty much all of your essentials.
The main area of the place has your homebrew grains on either side of you (walk-in cooler to the right, wall to the left) with the large L-shaped bar area just past the walk in cooler.
They had 8 beers on tap, 6 of which were Mother Earth beers and a beer each from Deschutes and Green Flash. We opted to try the Mother Earth beers as that was the point of the trip.
The service was quick and friendly and the staff was happy to answer any and all questions. Always a great thing when you go to any beer establishment.
The prices were fairly reasonable, $2 "samples" (they had to be 6-8 oz) of regular beers, and $3 for "premium" beers. The pints and growlers were also pretty fairly priced.
The beers themselves were okay, but these guys haven't been open all that long so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt here. It sounds like they're constantly tweaking and updating their recipes, so hopefully good things are to come.
