The taproom is two levels, and both levels have a bar, and there is an outdoor deck. Downstairs they appear to have a growler filling ordering system to handle the volume of people. The place is packed at happy hour time on a weekday. Good selection of beer styles - about 10 beers on tap. They have free popcorn to snack on.

Awesome little tap room right on the main drag in downtown Helena. Place was packed when I was in there on a Sunday at 5. No food served other than some free popcorn. Staff was very friendly and knowledgable and the beers are phenomenal! I had three different styles of IPA and all were fantastic well executed beers. If you find yourself in Helena this is a must stop!

There's a cool beer town in Montana and that is Helena. Did a flight and beers were good and got better as they got darker. Place was packed but not congested. Prices fair, service satisfactory considering. I would love to go back to Helena to visit this brewery and the vaunted one across town. We'll see.

Bright, friendly atmosphere and located downtown, Blackfoot River is my favorite Helena brewery. It's often crowded, but I heard they are adding on and serving pizza so I can't wait til my next visit!
Also home of some of the best beers in Montana: Blackfoot River IPA, Steamboat Lager, and Cream Ale.
