Owner description: How it began...Well somewhere in the middle of Montana lies yet another of the state's infamous small towns by the name of Winifred. Many of you likely have not heard of the town, but for those of you who have you know that if Winifred can produce anything it is an appreciation for beer. It's here that the love of beer grew in men and, more importantly, in the heart of one man, by the name of Evan Bowser, who turned that love into a dream...With some planning, a few brews in between, and a brand new baby later, the family owned Bowser Brewing Co became the first brewery to grace Great Falls in over 40 years. Along with his parents, Rich and Deb, his wife Michelle and new born baby Kendall, the Bowser's opened the door of delicious beer to the public on December 23, 2011.Who we are...We wanted to establish a place where people could gather to enjoy good tasting beer in a fun and relaxed environment. Producing tasty brews on a 7 barrel system under the mastermind of head brewer Dennis Holland, our goal is to provide great tasting beer to great people. Community means everything to us and that's why we support local growers and businesses in Great Falls and throughout the state. We have a dedicated community of our own working hard to keep you refreshed daily and occasionally making sure each and every beverage tastes sufficient for the public. Here at Bowser Brewing Co we like beer and we like people, I think that's something we could all raise a toast to.

We enjoy all three breweries in G. Falls, but Bowser is certainly our favorite! I'm not a huge beer fan, but I love the chocolate stout (not always on tap), jalapeno hef, and strawberry blonde. Recently the brewery has started serving food/although this is a bit of a work in progress (i.e. sometimes they are plain "out" of food). But,... More

Bowser Brewing Company is a great place!!! I don't drink beer, but I LOVE the house rootbeer!!! Our food was also fantastic!! And, the environment is classy and comfortable!!! The Bowser Family has done Great Falls a good deed by opening their community oriented business!

The beers are absolutely brilliant. I cannot get enough of the Jalapeño Heff it is best beer I've ever had. They need to take that beer national. The only draw back is they don't distribute cans like Kettlehouse. Enough said go get one.

While visiting our son and his family in Great Falls we stopped in to check out the beer and we were not disappointed! If you go, try the sampler so you can taste a variety. They don't have a food menu but rather have two local restaurants that deliver. We were there for lunch and ordered from Big Mouth BBQ.... More

We came here after picking up a brewery map of Montana in another town. Great place to hang out in Great Falls! 5 beers $16 can't be beat!

My wife and I are from Great Falls but no longer live there - we were thrilled when we heard that a brewery had opened there and have made it a point to visit Bowser on almost every trip back we've made since it opened, even shuttling a growler between Bozeman and Great Falls practically every trip. It's an awesome... More

My husband and I love stopping into Bowser on the way back from driving around town. The people are so helpful and let you try any one of the beers before you buy a pint. The Monday Military discount is great too!

I make it a point to try any local brewerys when traveling so I have enjoyed many pints throughout the state of Montana. This place does not serve pints, only 12 oz beers which cost more than the average 16oz. montana made craft beer... The beers are not bad, maybe a bit forgettable if you are a hop head craving...

I love microbrews and included this in my tour of Montana. I was glad to see outdoor seating as I had my dog with me. I received prompt service, and all the beers sampled were distinctive and tasty. I am especially fond of IPAs and theirs was very good, as was the stout and amber. I bought a t shirt... More
