Hey! If you are a farmer or rancher, or you know one who wants to feed sterile spent grain to their animals, let us know here. There are no hops in it. It still has sugars in it. It is malted barley and wheat that is left over from the brew process, and is clean and sterile.

Saturday: Live Music - Tammy Hauer - Bozeman local, with a great song repertoire and great voice.

Sunday: Family day - Bring the whole fam-damnly, grab a pint, or root beer, sit down and beat the pants off your 6 year old at Battleship.

Spent Grain from our "Base Hit" Session Pale Ale
For ROTATORS on tap we currently have Anabatic Amber Ale. A well balanced, slightly-malty initial taste that is balanced with hops and plenty of caramel notes. It finishes with a floral and tropical fruity aroma that is refreshing for this style of beer. Named after those warm afternoon upslope breezes that you experience on the perfect summer day in the mountains or on the river.

Next up: "Base Hit" Session Pale Ale. A low-alcohol, easy drinking pale ale that is "sessionable". By sessionable we mean you can drink a few in a session without feeling too weighted down or too tipsy. Think lawn mowing beer that has a medium-bodied, "real" beer taste, not yellow fizzy stuff that tastes like carbonated dog pee. Can we say dog pee on the blog? I guess we just did.

Nitro suds

Also coming this Monday April 6th, is our newest rotator: Anabatic Amber Ale.

An amazingly well balanced malty beer with enough hops to keep it balanced, but not overly bitter. It is our Katabatic take on a West Coast Amber, dry hopped with Galaxy and Chinook hops. Weighing in at 40 IBU's, it has enough hops to back up the malty backbone, with notes of caramel, toffee, and honey.
