“Absolutely loved the atmosphere and beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

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!

“Great Sandwiches - Fast Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

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 great.

“Nice to find a light fruity ladies beer! Girls -Try the Wild Huckleberry! Loved the names:Good Medicine & Buckin' Horse!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

We stopped into the Great Northern Brewing Company and decided to sit at the small serving counter downstairs in the Black Star Draught house. It seemed to be very popular as there was a constant stream of patrons going up and down the stairs!
There was a large group in the downstairs area too sitting on the sofa and bar stools.

The guy who served us was very nice and knowledgeable about the various types of beer they brew and how they are made.

Despite not being a beer-drinker myself, I decided to try a couple. It is nice to partake of locally-produced items that drive the economy of the places we visit.

The bartender poured us small glasses of different beers on tap. I was impressed with the lightness and crispness of the Wild Huckleberry Wheat lager! This is clearly a ladies drink! If I lived here I might just develop a taste for this Huckleberry stuff!

My husband tried Good Medicine, as well as Black Star, Going to the Sun IPA and Buckin’ Horse(what a name!).

There were some souvenirs available like tees, cards and stickers. We also got some great deals in the sale box!

After we left we realized that we never made it upstairs. Oh well, there's a good reason to return to Whitefish in the future!

“Neat brewery - ok beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

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 three had merit to my taste but well worth the try. I would recommend you try if you have time while visiting Whitefish.

“Good beer in a great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

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.
