We're Open!

 We're Open! Woohoo!

Wednesday September 17th we finally opened our doors.
It's been a long wait, we know. During the deconstruction phase we hit a wall. A 3 story crumbling brick wall that was not structurally sound and needed total replacement. Along with that, the back third of the building needed to be replaced, along with the water, sewer and electrical hookups.

So that took some time.

But now we have our brewer Jason hard at work crafting these excellent tasting beers. We have our standards on tap: Hefeweizen, Scotch, Pale, and IPA. We also have a English Pale coming up.

We will have rotating tap handles that are themed "Big", "Bold", "Bitter", and "Session".

BIG beers will be high ABV beers like Imperial Stouts, Double Reds, Imperial Porters, etc.

BOLD beers will be malt-bombs like Porters, Stouts, Scottish Ales, and Belgians.

BITTER beers will be hoppy beers like, Pales, India Pale Ales, Cascadian Dark Ales, etc.

SESSION beers will be beers lower in alcohol but still big on taste like Saisons, Witbiers,  Northern English Browns, etc.

Here's our brewer Jason Courtney behind the bar just before the soft opening. Since the soft opening we have been very busy, everything is going great and people really like the space. We've had a great reception so far. Jason has also created quite the Scotch Ale.

Our Grand Opening will be October 4th. We will have a four piece bluegrass band, The Prairie Wind Jammers, appetizers and a raffle for a Mug Club Membership. We open at noon, but the fun stuff begins at 4pm.

We will also be taking a limited quantity to the Montana Brewer's Association Fall Brewfest in Missoula on Oct 11 down at Caras Park. If you can, come on down and see us at the Pavilion in Caras Park. We will be there from 2pm to close!
