Breweries in Montana produce a wide range of beers in different styles that are marketed locally, regionally, and nationally. Brewing companies vary widely in the volume and variety of beer produced, from small nanobreweries and microbreweries to massive multinational conglomerate macrobreweries.

In 2019, excluding the two largest breweries, the remaining 90 breweries produced an average of 1,650 barrels per year.[1] The state has an abundance of small local breweries. In addition to craft beer, Montana has several small batch distilleries, wineries, and ciderhouses. They also produce mead, kombucha, and seltzers.

In 2012 Montana's 38 brewing establishments (including breweries, brewpubs, importers, and company-owned packagers and wholesalers) employed 220 people directly, and more than 4,700 others in related jobs such as wholesaling and retailing.[2] In August 2016, there were 68 breweries in operation in the state of Montana.[3] In November 2023, the Montana Brewers Association reported 97 breweries with 4 more known to be in planning.[4]

Including people directly employed in brewing, as well as those who supply Montana's breweries with everything from ingredients to machinery, the total business and personal tax revenue generated by Montana's breweries and related industries was more than $98 million as of 2012.[2] Consumer purchases of Montana's brewery products generated more than $21 million extra in tax revenue.[5] In 2012, according to the Brewers Association, Montana ranked 3rd in the number of craft breweries per capita, with 36.[6] In 2023, the state remained 3rd.[4]

For context, at the end of 2013 there were 2,822 breweries in the United States, including 2,768 craft breweries subdivided into 1,237 brewpubs, 1,412 microbreweries and 119 regional craft breweries.[7] In that same year, according to the Beer Institute, the brewing industry employed around 43,000 Americans in brewing and distribution and had a combined economic impact of more than $246 billion.[8]

Legal information


According to the Montana Code Annotated 2009, section 16-1-106:[9]

(5) (a) "Beer" means:

(i) a malt beverage containing not more than 8.75% of alcohol by volume; or
(ii) an alcoholic beverage containing not more than 14% alcohol by volume:
(A) that is made by the alcoholic fermentation of an infusion or decoction, or a combination of both, in potable brewing water, of malted cereal grain; and
(B) in which the sugars used for fermentation of the alcoholic beverage are at least 75% derived from malted cereal grain measured as a percentage of the total dry weight of the fermentable ingredients.

(b) The term does not include a caffeinated or stimulant-enhanced malt beverage.

and section 16-3-213, Brewers or beer importers not to retail beer—small brewery exceptions:[10]

(2) (a) For the purposes of this section, a "small brewery" is a brewery that has an annual nationwide production of not less than 100 barrels or more than 10,000 barrels. (b) A small brewery may, at one location for each brewery license, provide samples of beer that were brewed and fermented on the premises in a sample room located on the licensed premises. The samples may be provided with or without charge between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. No more than 48 ounces of malt beverage may be sold or given to each individual customer during a business day.

The roots of Montana's liquor licensing system date back to 1933, when Prohibition ended and taverns sprung up throughout the state. In 1947, the state enacted a quota system, allowing one tavern for every 1,500 residents of a city. However, the taverns in existence at the time were grandfathered in, and what the state considers to be an excess of liquor licenses now exists in Montana cities.[11]


Montana ranks 2nd nationally in craft breweries per capita.[12]

406 Brewing Company is a microbrewery and tasting room in Bozeman. It was opened by Matt Muth, a home brewer since college, in 2011, as the second brewery within Bozeman's city limits. Due to its recent opening, its production is limited, with no brews made regularly. It plans on offering food service in the near future.[18][19]

Angry Hank's Microbrewery

Angry Hank's Microbrewery
Opened2006 (2006)
Owned byTim Mohr

Angry Hank's Brewing is located in a former service station in a part of Downtown Billings known locally as the Brewery District. It was opened in 2006 by Tim Mohr, who had worked as a brewer at Red Lodge Ales for five years.[21] The Angry Hank from which the brewery gets its name is not part of the organization, but instead a Miller Genuine Draft-drinking friend of the family who always seemed angry. The idea for the name came when someone, in an attempt to console Hank said to him, "Don't be angry Hank," just as Mohr and his family were having troubles deciding on a name for the then-proposed establishment.[22]

Angry Hank's does not bottle its beer, and sells about 90% of its beer on site. Popularity of the relatively new brewery, credited in part by Mohr to nearby downtown hotel tourists and the taproom's hours coinciding with happy hour, has led to a stretched supply. Given such, the owner is considering expanding in the near future.[22]

Bayern Brewing

Bayern Brewing
Opened1987 (1987)
Annual production volume10,000 US barrels
Owned byJürgen Knöller

Main article: Bayern Brewing

Bayern Brewery was opened in 1987 as the "only German brewery in the Rockies," and today is the oldest operating brewery in Montana. Brewers Thorsten Geuera and Jürgen Knöller are both from Germany and use all German equipment and recipes.[23] Knöller was born and raised in Bavaria, Germany (Bayern in German, hence the company's name), where he was apprenticed. He graduated as a Masterbrewer from Doemans' Masterschool for Brewing and Soft Drink Technology in Munich in 1987, after which he became the brewmaster for Bayern Brewing.[24]

All beer at Bayern is brewed according to Reinheitsgebot, otherwise known as the German Beer Purity Law or the Bavarian Purity Law. The law, originating in the city of Ingolstadt in the duchy of Bavaria, Germany in 1516,[25] concerns the standards for the sale and composition of beer. In the original text, the only ingredients that could be used in the production of beer were water, barley, and hops. The law also set the price of beer at 1-2 Pfennig per Maß.

At almost 10,000 barrels of brew a year, Bayern is the second largest brewery in Montana after Big Sky Brewing. Knöller has had facilities at three different locations, but the most recent move in 2002 was structured so that it could be expanded to produce up to 100,000 barrels per year if needed.[23]

Russell Houck

Located at the edge of Eastern Montana, Beaver Creek Brewery describes itself as "an oasis in a desert of no microbreweries". As of 2008, the brewery was brewing at its capacity of about 200 barrels a year, and, despite its low production, has a distribution area spanning hundreds of miles because of the low population density of the region.[26]

The brewery was set up in Wibaux's historic old business district with equipment salvaged from the former Milestown Brewing Company in a former grocery store that had been closed since 1986.[27] As of 2012, Beaver Creek Brewery is the only brewery in the southeast region of Montana.

Though Montana had a robust early brewery history, many notable companies were severely weakened by Prohibition and others finished off by the expansion of national breweries.





Montana Brewers Association (MBA)

The Montana Brewers Association was founded in 2008.[59]
Its previous name was the Montana State Brewers Association, established in 1997.

Its purpose is the promotion of the production and sales of the freshest and highest quality Montana-made beers through education, public awareness and support for local breweries' products, profession, and histories, while documenting their economic impact and legal responsibilities throughout the state.[60]

A Drink in Every Hand

A Drink in Every Hand uses personal experience, knowledge, and relationships with breweries, wineries, cideries, distilleries, and other locations across Montana to serve up the most current information.[61] This website provides a map plus lists of craft alcohol creators.
