So Kyle tells me I have to see this place in Whitefish Montana. Now, with Whitefish being a few short hours away I was not opposed if this place really was as good as what he said. We walked in and the beer is in the far end of this unassuming little grocery store. The first thing that I notice is that their micro and craft beers are all in prime location with the macros pushed aside in the far corner. The selection here is absolutely blew me away. Stone, Cantillion, Jolly Pumpkin, a double facing of Dechutes abyss, Mikkeller, Left Hand. The kind of beer selection that will make any beer geek weep... In Whitefish. Damn. The staff looked at all of us kind of funny and had no idea what we were doing (four of us went and each spent over $100). But a must see if you are any where near Whitefish.

Average place. Widest selection in town, but dont expect too many gems. Still worth stopping over and then further down the street towards the mountain is Alpine Market (0.5 mile?) has a smaller selection, but had more gems. Between the two places you will cover Montana pretty well. Friendly staff at both places, but both are just supermarkets.

Excellent place to grab beers. Just looking at the entire back wall is a sight to see. And it was nice that all the Big Boy’s stuff is in the far corner; the craft selection fills 3/4’s of the fridges!!! Totally spoilt for choice when I was there (Easter Weekend). Deschutes Abyss, Sierra Nevada Ovila, Stone Old Guardian Belgo, fresh 6 packs from Deschutes, Bridgeport, New Belgium, Widmer’s, Sierra Nevada, Stone. All the Montanan breweries were covered too. A good touch is that you can split 6 packs and mix your won. Nice selection of Unibroue beers and European beers too. For a small town, the beer selection really is something special. A MUST visit!!!

Well I was disappointed here. No Ninkasi, no Deschutes. I did find Life and Limb which was nice I guess. No one there knew anything about the beer. I bought some sale items of Full Sail for 3.99 a bomber. Best thing I got was Struise Tseejus for 3.99. I must have come at a bad time. Came back a few months later, selection was still kind of lacking but I did find several nice things.

Stopped in on Duffman’s recommendation. Selection was surprisingly good, though there were no longer any beers from DFH, Stone, Allagash, Cantillon, or Rodenbach. Instead I found 2 varieties of Mikkeller, 2 varieties of Jolly Pumpkin, the Koff Porter, the Carnegie Porter, plenty of Deschutes, a few Rauchbiers, a de Dolle, a lone Wolavers, plus a generally broad selection of other microbrews. Not sure about the service, in the 20 minutes or so I was picking out beer, no-one so much as came by to ask if I was finding what I was looking for, nor was any help forthcoming for a carry-out. For the size of the town the selection is unreal, and apparently rotating, being as Duffman and I saw completely different selections when we were there. Bonus points for being just around the corner from Great Northern Brewing also.

After several stops at local liquor stores without any success in finding micros or craft beers of any kind, we were finally advised to try this place. What a pleasant surprise! It is a combination food market, wine shop, and beer store, and they do all three things well. The beer selection was astonishing considering the size of the town, and more importantly the quality was top-notch. Nearly all local micros were found here (at least the ones you can buy in bottles), as well as gems from across the states such as Dogfish Head (6 varieties), Wolavers, Deschutes, Stone, Allagash, Jolly Pumpkin, and many others that I can’t immediately recall. They also had a great selection of quality imports, including several styles from Cantillon, Rodenbach Grand Cu, some nice saisons from France, some Olfabrikken (sp?), Kulmbacher eisbock, and many others I cannot bring to mind. We blew our budget for the week here, and it is a bonus that they do not mind if you mix and match 6-packs! Very friendly helpful staff who insisted they help carry our giant stash to our trunk. If you are in Whitefish and want to find top quality beer with a decent selection, this place is an absolute must! My rating numbers are based on the size of the town that this place is in there are bigger stores in bigger cities, but this is a wonderful local treasure chest of beer.
