Big Sky Country is known for fresh air, wide open spaces, and views that dreams are made of but what may surprise some is that Montana is also 2nd in craft breweries per capita in the country. With over 40 breweries in the state of Montana, it is no wonder that several have settled into the Missoula area and that Missoulians are welcoming new breweries every year.
1. OVER HALF THE MALTED GRAIN USED FOR BREWING IN MONTANA, IS ACTUALLY GROWN IN MONTANA.
2. BEER BREWED IN MONTANA IS SOLD IN 24 STATES AROUND THE COUNTRY, IN 5,000 RETAIL LOCATIONS.
3. MONTANA RANKS 2ND IN NUMBER OF BREWERIES PER CAPITA.
