We both got a beer flight and sampled 5 out of 8 choices. It’s clean, quaint and staff is suuuuuuper sweet and knowledgeable. Prices are fair for resort town. Would go back.

This brewery had a great vibe! I had a huckleberry lager, which seemed a very Montana thing to do. My mom had a hopped cider which was a guest tap. Good prices, and a six pack to go was only $8 which I think is...More

Stopped by here after spending a day swimming around at City Beach. We were very pleased with the beers here. Our favorites were the Bluebird Day, Good Med, and Wheatfish Lager. The Bluebird Day is one of the better imperial IPAs I’ve ever had. It’s...More
