The Last Best Brew

When you’re out and about exploring Montana, The Last Best Place, make sure and stop by The Bitter Root Brewery in Hamilton for The Last Best Brew. Bitter Root Brewery is proud to be one of the oldest breweries in the state. First opening its doors in 1998, the last 21 years have been a whirlwind of great beer, delicious food and amazing customers! Family run and family friendly are two pillars that have stood true since the beginning.

Bitter Root Brewery’s brewers are passionate about beer and love the opportunity to showcase their talents. The brewery produces over 40 different styles of beer a year with 11 on draft at our tap room at all times. Matching the brewers’ passion, Bitter Root Brewery’s kitchen team creates dishes primarily from scratch with the best local or organic ingredients whenever possible. With plenty of options to please all palates, the kitchen at the Bitter Root Brewery is a favorite stop for both locals and tourists. Stop by and enjoy the excellent selection of local and traveling musicians every Thursday and Saturday evening from 6pm to 8pm. Stay tuned to our Facebook and website to keep track of what’s on tap, food specials and upcoming music and special events. There’s always something new brewing at the Bitter Root Brewery.
