This brewery is prohibited by law from selling pints (too much production!)- so they give away four free half pint samples instead! I tried three different beers- Scape Goat pale, Big Sky IPA and Powerwagon "wheat wine". All were excellent, and the pale and IPA were decidedly better on tap than in the bottle (duh). The wheat wine is quite unique- I took away a 1/2 gallon to share with some Missoula friends.

The tasting room is roomy and attractive, and the bartender was friendly and attentive. The gift shop has probably the best variety of merchandise of any brewery I've visited (all within Montana, and by no means all). They have a variety of fancy and unique growlers. I bought a package deal costing about 20 dollars that included a brown glass growler with a growler-sized koozy to keep it cold, and filled with their wheat wine (the less potent beer package goes for 15 dollars). A pretty good deal when you figure two free pints into the bargain.

The brewery is easy to access- its right off Interstate 90 near the airport, so you can visit it without getting snarled in traffic. A great brewery to visit!

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.
