Post Date: Mar 03, 2020

Montana ranks second nationwide for the number of breweries per capita, so the next great craft brew is always close at hand. In the Gallatin Valley and beyond, you’ll find a flood of hoppy goodness ready to sip, whether as a winter warmer or a summer refresher. Grab your growlers, and check out some of these Southwest Montana breweries.

Livingston

Katabatic Brewing Company

Located in the windiest city in Montana, Katabatic Brewing pays homage to Livingston’s bluster with its name. A katabatic is a cold, downslope wind that is often severe, perfect for Montana’s windy city. You’ll find their four standards always on tap, with four rotators swapping out with the seasons.

Neptune’s Brewery

Landlocked Montana might not be the most likely option for a nautical-themed brewery, but Neptune’s Brewery makes a delightful surprise. Drink like a God from offerings like the Siren Song Honey Rye or the River Nymph Golden Ale. You can also try out the collaborative restaurant, Neptune’s Taphouse and Eatery, for sushi and other Asian-themed eats.
