Big Skies, Micro Brews

A Dozen Delicious Microbreweries with Big Beers
The Gallatin Valley has been an integral player in the production of the wheat and barley used by brewing giants like Budweiser and Coors for more than 100 years, so it’s no surprise that the microbrewers that operate here are at the forefront of the craft beverage industry. Our local brew houses consistently create award-winning beverages made from the fruits of the beautiful landscape that surrounds them, and are sustained by the loyal support that stems from the communities that they serve. Today, the Gallatin Valley is home to a dozen distinctly unique microbreweries, with more popping up every year. They all have taprooms where you can sample fresh brews that you’ve probably never heard of, but will certainly never forget. Can you tackle all?
