Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a favorite spot for after-work refreshment. They usually have a special beer on tap that is often awesome (last week's espresso infused Stout was divine).

“The heart of Helena”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you come to Helena, you should come here. Its the local family-friendly hot spot where everyone comes after work to socialize and see friends. Enjoy a flight, or as a local about their favorite. I live here, and I go at least once a week. oh, and they donate a dollar per drink to a local charity on Monday nights.

“Tasty beer and friendly place to hang out”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to sample a broad selection of tasty craft brews and hang out. We really enjoyed the sunny patio, friendly locals, welcoming kid friendly environment and staff (you guys rock - nothing but happy and helpful going on). The only brewery I've enjoyed more is St Arnold in Houston.

“A Great Feeling of Community”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The atmosphere at Blackfoot River Brewing is similar to the atmosphere in an Irish Pub. It is a Community Place where families bring their children and most customers will easily strike up a conversation at the communal tables. Free popcorn, too.
Community Mondays are a wonderful way to raise awareness of the diversity and needs of the Helena Community and beyond.

“Always good beer and a good time.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Blackfoot River Brewing Co. has excellent beer, friendly staff and a fun atmosphere.
They have growler specials twice a week, Community Monday that supports local non-for profits, music on Sunday's and other events that add to the enjoyment.
My favorite beer is their Scottish Ale, but they have beer for all tastes. If you like cask conditioned beer, they open the first of two on Wednesdays.
