Beer always seems to brings people together - especially in Big Sky, Montana.
Whether you just skied the Big Couloir, ripped the Mountain to Meadow trail, rafted the Mad Mile on the Gallatin, summited Beehive Peak, climbed the Gallatin Tower, or hiked to the top of Storm Castle, you deserve to enjoy a well-earned beer after a fun filled day in Big Sky's backyard.
After any adventures in the mountains of SW Montana, there's something nice about a refreshing and delicious beer. For beer lovers, the craft beer revolution means that there are more high quality IPAs, pale ales, scotch ales, porters, stouts, lagers, saisons, cream ales, and other tasty types of beers than ever before.
If you're a beer connoisseur, we encourage you to check out Big Sky's local breweries. Both Beehive Basin Brewery and Lone Peak Brewery will pour you a world-class local brew that you can enjoy with your friends and family after a day in the mountains. Stop by and enjoy the laid back Montana vibe while enjoying Big Sky's stunning mountain scenery. Ask any local and they'll tell you that local beer is part of the Big Sky experience.
