Our story
Great beer calls for quality ingredients and quality ingredients require a healthy environment. So it should follow that sustainable brewing makes better beer, right? Well, we’re putting that theory to test and we think it’s working. The sun is not just for fun; and our solar collectors on our roof soak up rays and heat our water while producing quality ales and lagers. Because we sit on the shore of the largest and cleanest freshwater lakes west of the Mississippi, being sustainable is not a choice for us at Flathead Lake Brewing Co. We believe it is our responsibility.
