I know, that title's too cute, right? But this place has a great grill, good food, good variety of choices to eat, lunch or dinner, and the Great brews to go with whatever you have to eat! If you like a lighter tasting brew then maybe Sawtooth is your preference.. but they have many IPAs and light hefeweizen style brews... More

The chicken nachos are the best ever! I stop here every time I'm in the area & enjoy a cold brew & chicken nachos. Staff is very friendly, location is convenient & food/drink can't be beat.

Great beer and food, but the band was super annoying and loud. No one needs music before 8 pm, especially when trying to eat and converse!

I had the fish and chips my wife had the pulled pork nachos. Both were excellent dishes. my fish was cod loins and the breading was delightful. I don't eat many French fries, but these I could not leave alone. Many different styles of Brew. All of the ones we tried were excellent and true to their Style. The place... More

Wasn't sure what to expect. But it was one of the best meals we have had in quite some time. Would highly recommend the prime rib special. And the service was the best! A must visit if you are ever in Hamilton, Mt.

I liked this place. It is a brewery with a nice assortment of microbrews and food, such as nachos. Large, nice atmosphere. Worth the visit. Friendly staff.

Can be more than a bit crowed but the food, lets not even get into the brews, are well worth the trip. At one time they had a sampler of (roughly) six glass' of an once or two of their offerings. Sip of this, sip of that ... 'How big are your mugs?'

I visit this brewery whenever I'm in town. I am partial to their beers, and they always have delicious seasonal brews. The food is pretty run-of-the-mill pub food. They do live music which I've only experienced once. It sounded pretty good considering the way it's set up. It's a fun place to relax after a day on the river or... More

Stopped in for lunch and grab a couple of beers. Tukey swiss melt had big pieces of turkey. Not your normal deli sliced. Sandwich was good. Wide range of beer selection. You are limited to 48 oz per day and they stop serving beer to drink at 8 pm, but don't let either of those stop you from enjoying this... More
