Have really enjoyed our visits here! Highly recommend trying a Flight to taste 5 kinds of beer. All of them are unique and flavourful! The main area is clean, bright and the staff are very friendly. We had the Bighorn Nachos and they were fantastic to share. Would come back here again!
Sat at bar on first floor and did a tasting of 4, 5 ounce pours for $11. All 4 were good tasting beer. My favorite tasting brewery so far in MT. Service was fun and friendly. More seating upstairs. Lots of fun merchandise available. Walked away with a growler full of Glacier Chaser. Worth your time to stop in for a pint.
