Northwest Montana Breweries

Northwest Montana is home to quite a few unique breweries. In this POST we are featuring BitterRoot Brewing located in Hamilton Montana.

Sawtooth Ale
Lewis and Clark's 1805-1806 expedition took them past the many creeks that flow into the Bitterroot, among them the Sawtooth Creek. Bitter Root Brewing's blonde ale is made from the finest pale malt and hops available. The addition of malted rye and wheat give this beer a crisp, dry flavor. It's a national medal winner, and a year round favorite.

Nut Brown Ale
Developed in London, England, Brown Ale has been brewed for hundreds of years. English and American brewing techniques, combined with generous amounts of Crystal and Munich Malts, give Bitter Root Brewing's Nut Brown Ale its sweet, nutty character.

Pale Ale
First brewed in England around 1630, this beer style became popular in the early 18th century, as an alternative to the darker beers of the period. Bitter Root Brewing uses the finest malted barley to brew this English style Pale Ale, and traditional hop varieties give our Pale Ale its hop character.

Known as "Three Threads" or "Entire" Porter it became England's first national beer in 1722. It was called porter because of its popularity with that group of laborers. Bitter Root Brewing brews this rich dark ale with a hint of peat-smoked malt as a salute to English brewers long forgotten.

India Pale Ale (IPA)
First brewed in England around 1800, for export to the British population of India, IPA was generously hopped as a preservative for the long sea voyage from Britain. Combining both British and Northwest brewing techniques, Bitter Root Brewing's IPA is light in color, high in hops, with a rich malt flavor.

Winter Ale
Traditionally brewed as an Old Style/Barleywine Style Ale, Bitter Root Brewing's Winter ale is brewed with six malt varieties, generous amounts of hops, and a long aging process. A national gold medal winner, this "Winter Warmer" is our finest seasonal offering. This seasonal ale is available from October 1st through Easter.
