This is a good addition to the Flathead. Typical of other breweries and alehouses I've visited, Tamarack Brewing Company has an open floor plan, high ceilings and exposed beams. When busy it's a, loud, cheerful atmosphere. We had a very positive experience with excellent service, good food at a very fair price, and a selection of great home brewed beers.... More

Liked the beer samplers. The hummus appetizer was excellent. Chose two brews to put in my growlers, one of which I purchased there. Great atmosphere. Things I didn't like included IPA's whose hopping schedule made them taste like they had used adjuncts like pineol oil, juniper berries and/or rosemary. I talked with the waitress who assured me they did not... More

Stopped in with friends to try the beer on a Saturday afternoon. Busy place but able to be seated in five minutes. Wait staff very Knowledgeable and pleasant. New facility, very nice. And although we didn't eat the menu is quite extensive and meals coming out looked great! We will be back!

We always go to the Tamarack in Missoula. When heading back from Whitefish we surprisingly drove by this off the main higheay! The beers are great as usual, but beware that the 4 seasonal brews we tried were all awful. The place is getting a porch addition so going to be a great spring-summer patio! Prices are right and the... More

I spent New Years Eve here drinking some great house beers and the best fish tacos. A must stop in this sleepy community. All the food is great here, from the ribs to the Keg nachos. Come sit down an enjoy Montana.

This is a wonderful place in so many ways. It is run by the sons of former NHL great Lanny Macdonald, so they had me at "Lanny". The beer is very good - the selection of styles is comprehensive when you factor in the interesting seasonal brews. This is a busy place, particularly après ski, so try to visit when... More

Great selection of beer on tap. Went with my wife while we were in Kalispell for a long weekend. It was a Saturday evening on the long weekend, therefore there was a long line to get a table. But, on the plus while waiting we were able to try several of their beers! After we got a table we were... More
