They do not brew beer here, or have any house branded beers.

With that out of the way, it is an excellent one stop spot for all of the local offerings. The have a selection of Big Sky, Bayern, Kettlehouse, and other Montana brews.

The first day I came here it was about 95 degrees and upon entering there was a big dog laying on the floor and kids were petting it. Missoula is pretty damn dog friendly!

It wasn't too busy, and outside was empty.

I stopped back a day later in the evening (about 75 degrees) and the place was packed inside and out! The crowd was very mixed, from families, to college kids, to locals, and tourist.

I ordered up the Big Sky seasonal (Summer Honey) and their 501 sandwich. The food was average pub grub, and the beer was good. There were sports on the TVs and the place had a decent atmosphere.

Nice place to stop and try a variety of local beers and enjoy the vibe.

3.83/5  rDev -5%

We found this place online looking for grub. The atmosphere was lively for 4:30pm on a Thursday. They offer a happy hour from 5:00pm-7:00pm with specials on the local brews.

The food was typical bar food with one exception: Nachos. These are not your grandfathers nachos! These are piled high with lots of cheese, tomatos, jalapenos, black beans, and sour cream. We added chicken and it was almost too much for two people to consume.

They have a solid offering of local, regional, and national beers. Bayern, Kettle House, and Big Sky are well represented. Our waitress was very knowlegable and genuinely seems to like her job. I'm still kind of curious about another waitress rolling around with a police-issued ankle bracelet though...

Happy Hunting!
