The Best Brews from the Finest Ingredients

In a small Montana town, the aroma of freshly brewed craft beer drifted through the air, guiding the traveler to a local brewery nestled amidst the charm of rustic architecture. Inside, the ambiance was warm and inviting…

Montana’s first brewery, named after proprietor Henry Gilbert, was founded in Virginia City in 1863 – long before Montana became a state in 1889. During the remainder of the 19th century, many followed in the footsteps of the Gilbert Brewery and by 1900 there were more than 30 breweries across Montana. Gold Rush towns were known for placing incredible importance on the breweries in their communities. Due to unreliable access to clean water, the town brewery would often be established even before the church.

Today, Montana carries on the tradition of unique craft beverages with nearly 100 local breweries and 25 distilleries. Drink It In Montana aims to capture the story of Montana’s craft beverage industry by helping newcomers experience the unique flavors and locally-owned businesses.
