Just stopped in to sample the Great Northern Brewing Company beers and was surprised to find a "fruit" beer that I actually liked...a "first". (The Wild Huckleberry Wheat lager was very subtle/"not" sweet/refreshing and a nice surprise.) The IPA (Going to the Sun) and the red lager (Good Medicine) were also amongst our faves in the 6-sample flight that we... More

We enjoyed a flight of beers upstairs! The price was $7 for seven 6 oz pours this was a great bargain! Sadly we cannot buy Great Northern in Georgia so I fully appreciated these great brews and will be looking for someone to ship them to Georgia if not more incentive to move to Montana!

Stopped in for a quick lunch on a weekday (was heading to airport). Service was fast - food was hot and fresh. Had the BLT on toasted bread with homemade root beer - very good. View of the mountains could not be beat. Hope to pass this way again and stop in for dinner and sample some beers. Menu looked... More

The draught house is located right downtown on central avenue in a beautiful building. You can order beer on the first or second floor. The second floor quasi-pub was being renovated when we visited but looked like a great spot overlooking the brewery. We ordered a sampler of all of their beers on offer (6). Of the six, I thought...

Great place to stop by for a beer while in whitefish especially during the farmers market. Or if you just happen to want a nice place to sit and look at big mountain. Good shuffleboard table.

My wife and I visited the tasting room after dinner one night and found the staff there very helpful in describing the 6 or 7 beers on tap that night. Also, they pour a healthy amount for each beer (4 or 6 oz) - and do not charge! We also went on the brewery tour the next day at 3:00... More

We stopped in for a few samples of this locally operated brewery. The staff was very friendly and the beer selections were very good. The sampling area is kind of small, but it was not too busy so we got a seat right at the bar. If you like fresh local beer, you would enjoy a visit here! They have... More

I tasted the 2 red styles (Scottish & Imperial) and the wheat and settled on the Schwarzbier (black lager). I would have gone for the Imperial red, BUT at 8%, a pint would have made me ineligible to drive for longer than I would have liked ;-} and.....my ice cream levels were also running low... Although I'm a beer quantity... More

We came here around 8pm on a Saturday to try out some of their brews we've never had before. The concept looked fun, and we were up for anything. When we ordered at the lower level counter, the waitress had an extremely bad attitude! We wanted the 6 beer sampler. Without us counting how many options there were (8), she... More
