our beer

two rivers pale

Our bright, medium-bodied American Pale Ale pays tribute to the two rivers that flow into Flathead Lake: The Swan and The Flathead. The lively pine, citrus, and floral hop aroma combines with a slight malt sweetness that lingers into the finish and compliments the bitterness representative of the style. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Caramel, Carapils, and Aromatic. Hops: Simcoe® and Cascade.

ABV: 5.6% | IBU: 35

AVAILABILITY: On draft, 120z cans

the centennial ipa

Our India Pale Ale is generously hopped with the Centennial variety in honor of the 100-year anniversary of Glacier National Park. It has a floral, citrusy hop profile, and a clean malt profile that is rounded off with a dry and moderately-high bitter finish. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Wheat, Caramel, Vienna, and Honey. Hops: Zythos and Centennial.

ABV: 7.3% | IBU: 53

AVAILABILITY: On draft, 12oz cans

Citrus SMaSH IPA

This bold IPA is made using the SMaSH technique, where one malt variety, as well as one hop variety is used. We chose Montana-grown and malted 2-row barley and Equanot™ hops, and to use grapefruit to reinforce the already citrusy and fruity notes of the hops. Malts: 2-Row Pale. Hops: Ekuanot™.

ABV: 6.5% | IBU: 68

AVAILABILITY: On draft, 12oz cans

Zero Day Double IPA

This Double IPA is created for the true hop enthusiast. A mild malt body with mostly Montana grown 2-row allows the floral and berry hop profile to be prominent. We utilize the Mosaic® variety of hops for aroma. A big, clean, crisp finish tops this beer off at 8.2% ABV. Malts: 2-Row Pale and C-80. Hops: Columbus and Mosaic®.

ABV: 8.2% | IBU: 70

AVAILABILITY: On draft, 12oz cans

Heyyy-Z-Bear Hazy IPA

Super smooth and fruity would be the best way to describe this thick and hoppy IPA.  It is much more mellow than the traditional IPA in that the hops are predominantly a flavor component rather than the back of the throat bitter that some customers are accustomed to.  It may not look quite like a milkshake, but the beer sits heavy on the tongue and is a great desert to any pub fare.  The “Hazy” style has risen to the top of the heap and we hope that this beer will also. Malts: Wheat, Pale, Dextrin, Oat Malt, and Rolled Oats. Hops: Amarillo®, Simcoe®, Citra®, El Dorado®, and Sabro®.

ABV: 6.8% | IBU: 32

AVAILABILITY: On draft (Summer Seasonal)

Montana Light Kolsch

Our German-Style Light Ale is a perfect summer beer. This beer is brewed at low fermentation temperatures with ale yeast, to create an ale that is similar to a lager in flavor and aroma. The mellow malt profile and low bitterness defines this bright, clean, and refreshing beer. Lemongrass and Acidulated malt creates a slight tang, and the ale yeast provides esters that are reminiscent of pear. Malt: 2-Row Pale, Pilsen, Carapils, and Acidulated. Hops: German Tettnag and Czech Saaz.

ABV: 5.0% | IBU: 15

AVAILABILITY: On draft, 12oz cans

Flathead Premium Lager

Premium Lager is the standard for American beer, made famous by the larger US breweries. We have brewed this beer to satisfy the want for a crisp, light bodied, low hopped beer that is still craft. 30% flaked corn was used in the mash to create alcohol while reducing the malt profile, the corn leaves a clean, refreshing finish with a mild smooth mouth feel. Malt: 2-Row Pale, Carapils, Pilsen, and Flaked Corn. Hops: Cluster, Fuggle, and Tettnang.

ABV: 5.6% | IBU: 14

AVAILABILITY: On draft, 12oz cans (Summer Seasonal)

Huck Lager

We took our Premium Lager and added 40lbs of FRESH huckleberries to a 10bbl batc. Still a crisp, light bodied, low hopped beer with a slight sweetness. Malt: 2-Row Pale, Carapils, Pilsen, and Flaked Corn. Hops: Cluster, Fuggle, and Tettnang.

ABV: 5.6% | IBU: 14

AVAILABILITY: On draft (Summer Seasonal)

Sunshower Blood Orange Wheat

Traditional Wheat Ale brewed with 25% malted wheat and Montana grown Pale Malt. The hop character is mild and citrusy to balance the fruity sweetness. We have added Blood Orange for a fresh fruit flavor in the background. This is an easy drinking brew for anytime of the year. Malt: 2-Row Pale and Malted White Wheat. Hops: Amarillo® and Ella™.

 ABV: 5.3% | IBU: 20

Apricot Gose

This is an old German-style brewed by the river Gose in Goslar, Germany. The saline water created a very salty beer which in those days, was all a bit sour. This tart and light quencher is made with apricot puree, cara cara orange halves, and a pinch of salt. Pair this beer with any light fair and any hot beach day. There is enough salt to ease your sweaty brough and some love to make you feel you have earned your day. Stay hydrated and drink another. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Pilsen, and Wheat. Hops: Perle and Pacifica.

ABV: 5.4% | IBU: 10


Dock Start Amber Ale

Classic American Amber Ale that leans towards malty sweetness. A deep red color, medium body and subdued hop profile makes this a great year round brew. Well balanced and a local favorite. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Wheat, Caramel, and Chocolate. Hops: Golding and Fuggle.

ABV: 5.8% | IBU: 24


Rising Sun Espresso Porter

Take our Painted Rock Porter and add a coffee blend from our local roaster, Fieldheads Coffee Company, and you get a rich, chocolaty, perfectly balanced ale that’s black in color and remarkably smooth. Maybe not ideal for first thing in the morning, but drinking it does bring to mind a beautiful sunrise on the shores of Flathead Lake. Malt: 2-Row Pale, Caramel, Chocolate, and Black. Hops: Cluster and Golding.

ABV: 6.5% | IBU: 26

AVAILABILITY: On draft, 12oz cans (Seasonal)
