have a beer in Missoula

Do you favor a frosty mug of beer on the warm summer days, and a heart-warming porter or stout in the dead of winter? Then you'll find yourself at home in Missoula with our three local, and distinctly different breweries that serve up everything from tradtional English Ales, to authentic German Lagers, to the ever popular hemp infused brews that populate our fair city.
