In Montana two weeks ago for a backpacking trip and stopped by the Blacksmith Brewery for a few post-hike beers. Must say that I was quite impressed.

Blacksmith doesn't bottle any of their beers, but have a pretty decent selection on tap. We tried four different beers and were pleased with all. Personally, I like the Pulaski Porter the best, but they do span many different styles.

The brewpub is aptly named being that they have remodeled the old Stevensville blacksmith shop to turn it into a brewery. They have a lot of historical blacksmith, and Stevensville, decor that gives the place an authentic old-town feel.

The place is almost always busy after 5:00, but they have to shut down at 8:00 (old Montana law) so get in there early to get a seat and get your four beers. The servers were all social yet efficient. They had a live band playing the last night we were there, and the place was packed with locals.

Great start for Blacksmith Brewing. I will certainly be back the next time I make it to Montana.

I had an afternoon in Missoula to kill and decided to head ~30 min south to begin my brewery tour of the area.

Blacksmith wound up being my best stop of the three breweries that I visited in the Missoula area (Bayern and Kettlehouse being the two others).

In Montana, all brewery tap rooms stop serving beer at 8:00 pm. They also limit you to something like 48 oz. per day. They will accompany your first beer with a ticket indicating how much you've had. At first I was hoping it was a "buy three, get one free" ticket. Not the case.

Blacksmith is located in an old, refurbished building with lots of wood and exposed brewing room. They had a pale and two different IPA's on tap which wins me over. While they had the Belgian-style glass rinsers, I caught a server pouring a new and different beer for a customer in their existing glass. Otherwise, service was very friendly and even printed out directions to my next brewery stop for me.

I highly recommend the short drive down from Missoula or if you happen to be in the area.
