If beer isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Montana, you’re not alone. But in recent years, the brewery business has boomed in the Treasure State, giving us more of them per capita than anywhere else in the country (we often compete with Oregon and Vermont for that title). We have great conditions for growing hops and wheat everywhere we look. Love it or hate it, Montana produces some amazing beer.

But if you do love it, you’re in luck. Our official brewery trail is as massive as Montana itself and would take an entire summer to complete. This sample “mini brewery trail” highlights some of our best known breweries in Yellowstone Country, and it can be done in a day or a weekend. Designate a driver and hit this trail to sample some of our best craft beer.

If you love good beer, make it your mission to complete the entire Montana Brewery Trail over time. But if wine is what you prefer, Montana also has some great wineries.
