Favorite thing about living in Northeast Montana: The friendly people
We know that it can be overwhelming to step into a brewery for the first time and see the list of offerings on the walls including staples, seasonals and specials. And not to mention that the names alone can be confusing and clever and novice brewery v visitors might find themselves thinking, “Okay, but what exactly is an IPA and how is it different from a stout?” Luckily, Northeast Montana’s breweries all boast friendly staff who are happy to be your guide on your hoppy adventures, but if you want to stick with some of the crowd pleasers and well-reviewed favorites, you can stick to our picks.
