The benches out front proclaim "Beer is a religion, come worship with us". This is a great place for beer lovers and anyone else who likes hanging out in a relaxed, friendly environment. I brought my 15 year old, who enjoyed the cream soda while I sampled a flight. They have a nice selection in a variety of styles. The servers and regulars were incredibly friendly. We did not try any of the food, but judging from the overall feel of the place, I would guess they put some thought and care into what goes on to the plates.

Wonderful venue with antique jukebox and articles depicting the agricultural industry of the area. Did a flight though and found beers merely OK to good, but it appears the beer scene has just arrived here and probably needs some time. Perhaps another visit later.

I was in town for a meeting and got in a few hours early. My first stop was of course Bowser Brewing. I needed lunch, but had research that you can get food delivered from a few local spots. So that is how the food is done. It was good, was delivered in about 10-15 minutes, and hit the spot. Although I would add, I do not believe any of the food was local or sustainable foods, but was prepared by a local place, so that counts to.

The taproom was cool. They have wifi. You can get samples, like a tray of 5 for a reasonable price. Prices all around were fair. I mean, you are paying for quality, and you are getting quality beers across the board. No stouts, and I think only one dark beer, a porter. All were good, nothing was undrinkable. I did not try any of the light beers so anyways.

A definite hangout if you randomly find yourself in Great Falls for a lil while! Anytime I am back this will again be my first stop.

Absolutely great place. Friendly knowledgeable people, comfortable spot with a broad selection of very good beers. Was on a business trip and happily surprised to find so many well made top notch beers, But after speaking with owner, Evan...understood why. Commitment to top quality brewing, diversity and innovation in styles, high respect for local ingredients and only the freshest beers...Man, I'm sold! Then throw in that head brewer is award winner Dennis Holland of Great Lakes fame, You might come to Montana for a lot of reasons...now there's another reason to get on a plane. Envy the locals.

Very "just come in and hang out" friendly - board games, popcorn, and root beer on tap for those under the drinking age. You can order food (bbq, pizza) for delivery, and enjoy the huge variety of beers on tap. I especially love how they come up with their own recipes made from what's on tap (half of this, half of that....results in something great...e.g., "crunchberry"). Very creative and fun-loving vibe, with exceptional beer results.

I entered Bowser Brewing on a nice Saturday afternoon. The clientele was mixed young to middle aged. The room was pleasant, clean and inviting. The waitresses are attractive and the younger gentleman behind the bar that helped me with my tastes was knowledgeable and very friendly. They had a great selection of beers. After tasting, the Summer Pale and Scotch Ale, I chose the latter. It had good body, a very nice after taste and an outstanding hint of Johnnie Walker Blue. I purchased a Bowser 32 oz Growlette with Scotch Ale. I will return!
