Very big, cool, modern, clean place very near to downtown. Sat at the bar and had some beers and food, service was great. Very big selection of beers for a place in Montana, lots of Montana beers as well as other US micros. Food was really good but expensive. Beer was a bit pricey too compared to other places but the selection made up for it. A must stop if in Bozeman.

Great place for regional taps. They have a lot of Montana and NW beers and some California on occasion. With all those handles (at least 45) it would be nice to see just one Belgian on tap (they are now available to Montana restaurants in keg). Other than that, the food is great (try the Bison Potstickers) and the atmosphere is amazing!

Very open, nicely-appointed layout, which combined with a bar, restaurant and pool makes it a but loud. Still, it’s nice and children are welcome. It appears this place is always busy. Service is very good and chatting with the bartender reveals a good depth and breadth of beer knowledge and yielded some good recommendations. I would guess that they’re using a nitro/CO2 mix to power their kegs, which adds a pleasant creaminess to most pours. Food is very good and worth the trip for even non-drinkers. Selection is also excellent, with 3-4 choices in about ten different styles. A bit on the dear side, but the package is worth it. Must-see in Bozeman.

Been here several times, can’t believe I keep forgetting to rate it... Nice new looking exterior with a modern and vast interior. Very busy place most of the time. Sort of has a chain feel to it, the menu is standard fare, and the in-house beer is ok. Must be contract brewed by Bozeman Brewing? Not sure on that. They do have other PNW micros, which is nice.

Nice upscale restaurant with sub par beer brewed for them. The rest of the tap list was nice and worth a visit for seasonals and single batch beers of mostly local Montana beers. Prices were a little steep which was expected but the bartender did give me several samples of various beers for free. A little too much of a scene type place for me, but still worth a visit.

I stopped here with my girlfriend last summer while on a backpacking trip through Bozeman. Wonderful city, and it only seems fitting this place would be there. It is right on the main drag through town, and it’s one of the first landmarks you see after the greyhound station. A nice outside seating area with plenty of tables and umbrellas. Great beer too! I definately recommend this place.

Good selection of Pacifc Northwest. Along with the stuff that is brewed for them by Black Foot. Good food, and a decent staff with some beer knowledge.

Great selection of beers -- taps inlcude 7 of their own plus another 5-10 Montana beers, with another 5-10 from Idaho/Washington/Oregon. Excellent service. Food is good but a bit expensive. Atmosphere tries to be all things for all people -- a bit yuppie (as much as possible for Bozeman), a bit pool hall. Top stop for Bozeman.
