    Just wondering what is your favorite MT beer that you've tried lately or best overall?


    Favorite overall Old Stache by Tamrack Brewing in Lakeside

    Most recently Three Spirits at Uberbrew. Possibly the best MT beer I've had to date. Bozeman House Bill 400 is a close 2nd.

    I have been impressed with every Blackfoot River beer I have tied. Never been but tired a few growlers.

    Big Sky IPA is killer! Going to the Sun IPA,Headstrong Pale Ale,Bent Nail IPA are all good. The Juice Double IPA from Madison River brewing is a bomb of a beer,hoppy and packs a punch at 9% abv,my favorite Montana brew so far. Have has some others as well,some great beer in Montana for sure!!!

    Most everything Blackfoot River does is good to great. Tumbleweed is my favorite MT IPA and Lewis & Clark seems to have gotten more creative since they opened their new taproom. The barrel aged weizenbock was particularly good last time I visited.

    I'd add that Carter's is the best of the Billings breweries. Also, I was pleasantly surprised with Bayern's (new) dopplebock Bakken Bock.

    Blackfoot double citra when it's available. I really like the stuff from Draughtworks. For an every day beer, Boxcar Brown is pretty good too. The distro here sucks and lots of mediocre breweries but the support for local brews is great here.

    I love Carters, except their hours. Best saison I've had from a MT brewery.

    Compared to most small (population-wise) states, Montana produces a good amount quality beers. As the OP said, Old Stache is good. I like Bayern's Dragon's Breath, it's an under appreciated style. Glacier Brewing's Glacier Select is a solid beer as well.
