Big Sky Brewing Co 5417 Trumpeter Way, Missoula, MT 59808. Trout Slayer is my favorite. Wish you lived closer, I'd buy all the beer you wanted if you could bring me several cases of Trout Slayer.

Here's the link https://bigskybrew.com/

I like Big Sky, but Bitterroot Brewing in Hamilton about 40 miles south of you on 93 is my favorite in the area. I’ve got a cooler full of them from last week right now lol

We're in Salmon now until Monday. I picked up some Moose Drool, Space Goat, and I think it was Big Sky IPA.

Any good beers in Salmon? Or what's the name of the beer you like from Bitterroot Brewing? Maybe I can find some here in Salmon.

Any great place to eat here?

I know it’s a stretch but if you make it south… Bandit brewery has a delicious Jalapeño beer…

Big Sky IPA was the most common everywhere we went!

I like the jalapeño at Bandit too.

Others have pretty much covered it. If you have time, Blacksmith Brewery in Stevensville is good and make reservations to eat at Mission Bistro.

This one is from Red Lodge, they may have it in Missoula. It was my second favorite local beer when I was up there a few years ago. My favorite was from a micro brewery in Glasgow.

I like Moose Drool and Space Goat both from Big Sky. Bitterroot IPA and Single Hop are two I really enjoy from Bitterroot that are available in a can. You can easily find both in Salmon at either gas station. The Red Dog Diner has great country style breakfast for a very reasonable price as well.

Big Sky brewery is right there in Missoula ( out close to the airport). Have seen couple good shows out there. Saw Blackberry Smoke open for Gov't Mule out there, a while back, great show. The Wilma in town has some good bands come thru. For a bar, I guess "the rhino" downtown is a good one. Also some good trout fishing around Missoula. Just love that whole area of Montana - beautiful.

Up in East Glacier I had a really good huckleberry beer.

I'll try and find the Mountain Man Scotch Ale here in Salmon.

I'll be asking soon if anyone's been to Garden City Utah. Will be there for 5 days.

Depending on how you come back down there’s several good breweries on your way south. I like Uintah Brewing and Red Rocks Brewing both in Salt Lake City. Red Rocks has great food as well, but Cutthroat from Uintah is probably my favorite beer from the two. Moab Brewing is pretty solid as well, and is very reasonably priced for good food and beer. The wife and I can walk out of there for $25 pretty easily with a pint of beer, a pint glass to keep, and a good lunch. Carver Brewing and Steamworks Brewing are both in Durango, and both are excellent. I had a few kegs of Carver beer at my wedding Riff Raff in Pagosa is solid as well with great food too. I typically turn south at Durango to ABQ, and head home on 40 though. Cutting across to Pagosa, then turning south to Chama is a prettier route though.

You just brought back so many memories. Lived in Missoula for almost 4 years while my wife went to law school there about 20 years ago. Caught several Panic shows and saw Willie and Family at Big Sky.
This time of year it gets dark so late, we'd eat dinner, she'd go study and I'd go to the UM golf course- 9 holes for $6 as a spouse of a student. Then we'd meet for a beer at the Rhino about 10. Such a fun time in life.
