I first visited this brewery when it was located in the old train depot at the end of Higgins. The brewery shared the building with a nice restaurant. It was always hopping on weekends. One time the Scorpions and their entourage showed up to party after a concert in Missoula. It was a grand venue for sure, and seems almost deserted now- perhaps the rent is too high.
I did not know about the current location until recently (I had moved away from Missoula). The current place is out of the way and would be hard to find if you didn't know the streets, and is far from the nice part of Missoula. Very limited parking on the edge of a low rent residential area. We visited it in cold weather and so didn't try the patio. The inside is rather cramped. They had a window to view their operation but it was largely obstructed by boxes.
The service is very good, and they were busy when we were in there on a Friday late afternoon. Their beer is excellent. As we left, my girlfriend was hesitant to pull out into traffic on the nearby extremely busy thoroughfare, and we were rudely honked at by the car in back of us. I gave 'em the Butte wave and they backed down like psis. That town is getting to be too much like a big city.
I like this brewery but don't care for the location. If this place was downtown in a nice old building, it would be the bomb.

Bayern is definitely a local favorite. Tasting room is kind of small but an inviting atmosphere, the patio is the best place to do your tasting. You can also watch them bottle their lovely beers. Pints sell for 4 dollars which is always a good deal. Growers give you about 6 pints and cost anywhere between 7 and 12 dollars for a fill if you already own a nice piece of glass, or stainless steel for us river goers.
