Butte Brewing Co. Overview

When Tony Olson decided to open a brewery in Butte, his goal was to bring back the Historic Butte Brewing Company with everything from the labels to the experience. The new Butte Brewing Co. re-opened their doors in 2015. In Butte it’s all about the people. Butte is a blue collar, hard working town and that shows when you strike up a conversation in the taproom. The Richest Hill on Earth gained fame as a successful mining town. The mines produced enough copper in the 20th century to leave Butte as the largest producer in North America. As a mining town full of shift workers, the beer flowed freely in Butte at all hours of the day. To quote Tony, “there was a lot of beer served in this town.” Butte’s craft brewery has in the neighborhood of 20 brews on tap, if not more. In addition to the beers, which run the gamut from Hazy IPAs to a Honey Cream Ale, Butte Brewing offers a Checo Root Beer. Checo root beer is a nod to the prohibition era soft drink that allowed the historic brewery to keep their doors open.
