Pierre, SD – The South Dakota Beef Industry Council (SDBIC) is excited to promote steakhouses and restaurants throughout the state during the 82nd Annual City of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

During the month of June, the public nominated 26 locations for being a favorite place to enjoy a steak. The top three locations will be featured throughout the City of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Additionally, the top three locations were visited by Celebrity Chef Justin Warner. South Dakota Beef Farmers and Ranchers joined Warner at the top three locations to determine the 2022 Sturgis Beef Throwdown Claim Your Steak Champion.

The SDBIC encourages the public to stop by any of the participating locations through August 11th to help select the 2022 Sturgis Beef Throwdown Claim Your Steak People’s Choice winner. Consumers voting online for their favorite steak location will have an opportunity to win Beef Bucks from the SDBIC.
