This place was very quiet early on a Friday afternoon, but there was a steady stream of folks coming in for growler fills and a pint. I had the sampler of all nine beers on offer, well brewed German styles, nothing very exciting. Staff and customers were friendly and engaging. Iíd like to return on a weekend.

Great staff, nine beers on tap and $4 for a brat of your choice stuffed in a huge loaf of bread. What more could you want? Try the pretzels!

One of my favorite breweries in the state. The taproom is a nice clean, friendly place, and has been nice and quiet the few times Iíve been in. I wish they had a slightly larger selection to choose from (though I think that for everywhere I go!), especially as most of their beers are available all over the state in 6-packs.

In short? Great staff, great setting. Disappointing beer. In long? This is clearly a brewery on the go, and they have a few offerings that have solid local followings. Their beers are available throughout the NW, and maybe even farther afield for all I know. Theyíre making money, and they have a shiny new taproom to show for it. Itís really nice, with big windows looking in on the bottling line, a cool upstairs that has a clubhouse feel (and faux old-world-castle decorations). Outside on the patio, thereís a giant chessboard inlaid into the cement, about 6í by 6í. 3í high plastic chess pieces await the warriors of the table, of whom Missoula can evidently boast a fair few, including a local legend said to once have given Bobby Fischer all he could handle and then some in a friendly game. We didnít check out the food, but we did try a couple beers. Like a lot of Bayernís offerings, they seemed a little flawed, though the recipes show a lot of character and imagination. If I could get my hands on a batch that didnít taste like artichokes, Iíd be a lot more excited about their lineup.

My favorite brewery in the state. Very traditional brewing practice. I believe the owner is from Germany. Great beers my favorite is Maibock.

Located off the beaten track, this is a friendly German-style brewery that practices Rheinheitsgebot, resulting in a nice range of well-crafted, very clean beers. The staff and the clientele (mostly locals) are quite friendly making for a pleasant drinking experience. There is a nice bar with about 7 taps, a few tables and an outdoor patio.

Really cool taproom. Came here right after Germany won 3rd in the World Cup expecting a nice boisterous crowd but it was exactly the opposite. Just a few older people sitting at the bar. Nice sampler, one bad thing is that they donít really have anything on tap that they donít bottle,at least not when I was there. Still though a very nice establishment.

Fun place to go, enjoy the beer. Due to Montana brewery laws, donít get to drink much and end up finding yourself walking out with more of a start buzz then anything.

I love how cozy this is. I really miss the place, I need to get back "home". My friends and I made it a point every spring to visit either Kettle House or Bayern once a week. I love this place, the service is great. The beer is delicious.
