It is a fairly small bar/tasting room with about a 15' long bar at one end and a bunch of small tables throughout with a nice leather couch on the end opposite the bar. The atmosphere was great felt like a hometown hot spot but it was pretty chill and relaxing. Actually me and my buddy had two different dogs come over to chill by us by the couch. They have $3.50 pints of at least eight different pretty unique brews (that you can purchase 3 of by law). The most unique beer I had there was the belgian dubbel ale (9.8% abv), but all the others I tasted were good quality. It was a good experience and I will definitely be stopping in there again, maybe even often, from now on.

My first night in Bozeman included a trip to the Bozeman Brewing company to check out some of their beers, and I didn't know how they did things up in Montana ahead of time. Apparently they can sell three pints per night per person directly, or a growler fill.
The space was a little small but it is a small town, and they had 8 of their beers on tap, some of the regulars it seemed plus a few special releases. I did like the atmosphere of the bar area / tasting room a lot and they had a handful of tables with barstools plus some popcorn available.
The beers were outstanding, and cheap! The regular pints were $3.50 and snifters of some of the special releases like their Imperial IPA and Barrel Aged Imperial Stout were only $5. I really liked the Imperial IPA a lot, and the girlfriend loved the Barrel Aged Imperial Stout which was aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for a very different and interesting flavor.
The standards were quite good as well, and one of the real highlights was the fresh hop ale made from local hop varieties.
All in all a great experience and if I'm ever back in Bozeman I'll be stopping in to see what's new on tap. A must-try for any beer lover stopping through.

Stopped by while in Bozeman for a few days. One of the brewers was haning out behind the bar, and provided great info about their different beers.
I was really really impressed by the overall quality. I had an "imperial ipa" which I thought was absolutely awesome.
Their signature porter was pretty good...not bad, but a little unremarkable.
I had a stout on cask, which practically blew my mind. It tasted very "fresh" and had nice somewhat unique flavor.
I think the beers were only like 3$ a pint.
also you can only get 3 beers per visit and the hours are limited per some crazy MT brewery law.
There was a good crowd of people haning out inside.
no food, but plenty of free popcorn.
If in town, be sure to stop by.

Wasn't expecting much from this place actually, didn't look too impressive from the outside of the building. The inside however was nice and cozy, very cool pictures up on the wall to look at. Not much for selection when I was there, I believe that there were only 3 beers on tap that day, amber, hefe and unfiltered IPA. I went with the IPA which was very good, only had time for one beer while I was there. If you are in the area I would for sure recommend Bozeman Brewing, wish I could have stayed a little longer while I was there.

Due to the State of Montana's strict liscensure regulations for liguor/beer distribution, this brewery operates a "tasting room" which sells their beer for $3 a pint with a three pint maximum. You can purchase growlers of their beer there, as well shirts, pint glasses and the type. The "tasting room" itself is the front room of the brewery on the east end of Bozeman. The room has a modest bar near the front with several comfy couches, tables, games and a popcorn machine (I think they have a tv in there too)
The beers are truly exceptional. When I was there I tried their Plumb Street Porter, Amber, Hefe, and W.H.O. (which was summed up by Tyson the barkeep as a PBR with a kick, a fairly accurate description!). Their Hefe is very clean and crisp, without the skunky aftertaste that accompanies a lot of Hefes. The Porter is awsome too, as well as their Oatmeal Stout which is somewhat of a local legend. Todd, the owner and brewmaster is often there so you can share your opinions with him. The folks that work there are some of the nicest and more knowledgable guys I have met in a brewery. They really like what they do and aren't trying to sell you on the beer, they let the beer sell itself.
I enjoyed my three pint max while chewing the fat with the locals and barkeep. I got two growlers and went home a little buzzed and excited about enjoying more Hefe at home.
They are open M-Sat 4-8pm. I strongly suggest dropping in if you get a chance, you will be rewarded with a great beer tasting experience.
