Beaverhead Brewing Company

Beaverhead Brewing Company Overview

Welcome to Beaverhead Brewing Company located in Dillon, Montana! Like most of Montana’s communities, Dillon had a well established brewery operating in the late 19th century through the start of prohibition. This original brewery, which also operated under the name “Beaverhead Brewing Company,” was located on the south side of town. 

Today, the Beaverhead Brewing Company (taking its name from the historic establishment) operates as a community gathering place, hosting a wide gamut of events. Throughout the year, you will find the brewery hosting events like weekly trivia, running club meetups, pint nights and so much more. The brewery strives to serve the community as a whole, and as such, has created delicious sodas for the kiddos and has stepped into offering a rotating hard seltzer for a lower-calorie, gluten-free option. The brewery gives back to the community any chance they have and love having UM Western in town. 

Owner Brett Maki opened Beaverhead Brewing in 2014. Maki started his brewing journey in 2001 with a home-brew kit and quickly found a passion for the craft. This sent him to work at Pyramid Brewery in Seattle where he got a true taste for the industry and the hard work of production brewing. As a Dillon native, he and his family chose to move back to Montana in 2011 and saw the opportunity to open a brewery upon their return. The rest is history.
