Tap Into Creative Local Brews in Bozeman
If anything is as abundant as Bozeman’s natural beauty, it has to be craft breweries. We’ve got eight here for you to sample, and that’s not even all of them. Each is wildly inventive in terms of recipes, beer names and ambience. Many have outdoor patios, beer flights, weekly specials, live music — and some are venturing into canned beers. Basically, you can’t go wrong no matter where you go first. Just don’t let it be your last.
