Montana Brewing Company

Montana Brewing Company

Opened in 1994, Montana Brewing Company is one of the first breweries in not only Billings but all of Montana as well as one of the first taprooms to have a full restaurant menu.

Being one of the first brewpubs in the area, Montana Brewing Company witnessed microbreweries go from a niche offering to a full-fledged cultural phenomenon. They believe brewpubs have become staples in recent years because beer is a universal enjoyment. People love and appreciate variety and creativity in contrast to a more conventional bar experience. They believe the phenomenon was able to grow because of the example set by brewpub pioneers that showed people the benefits of appealing and unique alternatives. 

Mac-N-Cheese is the signature offering of Montana Brewing Company, for the simple fact that it is a food that goes well with beer. They serve nearly as many varieties of Mac-N-Cheese as they do of beer. Some recommended pairings of their Mac-N-Cheese with their beer are the Southern Mac with the Sharptail Pale Ale, the Bayou Mac with the Custer’s Last Stout, and the Rocky Crab Mac with the Sandbagger Golden Ale.

Gearing up for summer, Montana Brewing Company will be offering a series of Fruit Wheat beers, with Peach being the first in the rotation. Also coming up is the Helles Bock, a German-style lager.
