  • Used Book in Good Condition

Montanas brewing history stretches back more than 150 years to the states days as a territory. But the art of brewing in Montana has come a long way since the frontier era. Today, nearly forty craft breweries span the Treasure State, and the quality of their output rivals the best craft beer produced anywhere in the country. Maybe its because theres also a little piece of Montana in every glass, as the states brewers pride themselves on using cold mountain water and locally sourced barley harves

    Great Book on Montana’s Brewing History and Future, July 30, 2013

    Greg Strandberg “Greg” (Helena, Montana) –

    This review is from: Montana Beer: A Guide to Breweries in Big Sky Country (American Palate) (Paperback)

    I was told about this book and given an advance copy before its release, and let me tell you, I’m glad I read it! As a reader and writer of Montana history I was surprised to learn some things that I hadn’t know. What I found particularly fascinating was just how many breweries operated in the state, and how much beer they produced!

    Montana Beer does a great job following the entire history of brewing in the state, from its humble beginnings catering to the gold camps of Virginia City and Helena, onward through the state’s heyday in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

    Newhouse does a great job detailing how the state’s major breweries hit hard times in the 1950s and 60s. From that point on Montana didn’t see another brewery until the local microbrew market began to open up in the state during the late 1980s. Each of those pioneering breweries are then talked about in full, and it’s quite the entertaining account.

    I’d recommend this book to anyone interested in regional beer, Montana history, the brewing industry in general, or where to get a good beer in Montana!
