Great place to visit, 2 free glasses of beer per day. Most of their house brews are on tap. They have a small gift shop with really nice branded merchandise. If you go to Missoula, you should check out this brewery. I was disappointed they didn't have any of their seasonal "Ivan the Terrible" porter available when I was there.

This is a very unique brewery. According to Montana law they are unable to actually charge cash for the beers they serve on the premises. Therefore, all the beers are free even though they are only able to serve you four, six ounce, samplers. If you want to continue to drink their beers after your four samplers you can always fill up a growler on site or purchase select six pack cans/ 22oz. bottles. The brewery is a great place to go in order to experience a true Montana beer. They have had a lot of experience brewing since their doors have been open since 1995. I love this place and will always drink their beer. My favorites include Powder Hound (only available in winter), Summer Honey (Only available in the warm months), and Big Sky IPA which is available all year round. Also, the environment is very welcoming with incredibly tall ceilings and select windows to peer through and look at the various brewing vats. The only thing that could improve this place besides being able to serve unlimited beers would be if they extended their bar out to give more room to the numerous visitors they get daily.

Four free samples per visit ain't a shabby way to promote your product. Lots of stuff at the brewery doesn't make it to bottles and a pretty frequent rotation means you'll probably find beers you haven't tried before. It's a brewery atmosphere without the frills of a hop garden or kitchen but a nice hang out with buddies, especially on the way to the airport. Growler fills are nicely priced (and properly filled might I add) with specials certain days of the week. Even the gift shop is pretty cool with stuff for beer heads and their families.
