Our Family Says …



Jamie Schaunaman, Events Associate at Prairie Berry East Bank in downtown Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Jamie Schaunaman
Sioux Falls Hospitality Manager

“I love coming to work every day knowing I’ll be surrounded by openness, positivity, laughter and support. I have so much respect for Sandi, Matt and Ralph (the company’s owners) for what they’ve built and for the crazy talented people that work for this company.

I feel like every employee, no matter their role, has an opportunity to make an impact and that’s something truly special!”



Colby Smith
Senior Events Associate
Prairie Berry Winery

“I love that employees here are encouraged to be themselves. My individual personality is considered an asset that I can use to help our guests create the unique event they’ve envisioned.

The team environment is very strong, which enables growth in all areas, not just my department. It’s a rare blessing to have a job that feels more like fun than work.”



Misty Hildebrandt
Prairie Berry, LLC

“When I tell people I work at Prairie Berry, they say, “It seems like everyone there genuinely loves their job”. It’s true! The unique culture and amazing people are what make Prairie Berry such a great place to work. Everyone works as a team to better themselves and the company.

One thing I love about working here is every employee is given the opportunity to make an impact. There’s a strong emphasis on personal development and employees are encouraged to learn and grow.”

David Fields
Brewery Lead
Miner Brewing Co.

“I’ve found that working at Prairie Berry and Miner Brewing Co., there is balance of professionalism and fun like nowhere else. We work hard, and have a blast doing it. I am a part of a team full of support (not just my department, but the whole company), and always have help if I need anything.

I hear other people complain about having to go to their work the next day, and at Prairie Berry I don’t have that- and that’s pretty awesome!”
