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. (547 characters)

Great place we like to visit every weekend. I almost always walk away with a specialty bomber. The only way I think they could improve is to serve food. Small, fun and intimate setting with lots of stuff to look at. (215 characters)

Growing up in Montana, I have to save a small part of my heart for a home state beer. Big fan of some, not as much of others. moose Drool will always be a go to (160 characters)

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! (1,122 characters)
