Introducing the Lone Walker Ale

This summer we’ve introduced a new beer that we crafted exclusively in honor of Glacier National Park. We wanted to brew a light, easy drinking beer that would act as a refreshing treat to enjoy after a long trek into our beautiful Montana wilderness. So what did we come up with? The Lone Walker Ale, coming in at 4.5% ABV and 23 IBUs. Our tribute to the majestic National Park was named in honor of Lone Walker Mountain, which is situated immediately southwest of Upper Two Medicine Lake along the Continental Divide. This specialty brew is only available in a

Got “The Itch?”

Don’t worry, this time of year it isn’t uncommon to feel “The Itch”.    Although the snow persists and the wind blows on, the Vernal Equinox has arrived and even the most wintered Montanans can’t help but twitch with thoughts of  warmer weather and long summer days on the water.   “The Itch” wakes the bear from hibernation, reminds the bird to begin its long migration, and perhaps most fascinatingly adjusts the Timmy’s internal beer-compass to Belgium.   In order to alleviate your itching and twitching we brewed up our annual batch of Swimmer’s Itch Saison.  It should be ready
