Stopped in as part of my tour of Great Falls places. Like Bowserís, this place is brand new. Unlike Bowserís I would actually come back here. The Front is attached to another restaurant called The Faster Basset, which seems to be a crepe/coffee sort of plae, and two are divided by a large fireplace in the center of the space, though you can easily walk between the two businesses. The brewry itself is off to your right as you walk in, behind a glass wall, while the Faster Basset is off the the left. The beers are above average to good, and they have about 8 of their own, as well as a selection of other brewers (they had 3 Stone taps while I was there). The brewery itself doesnít serve food, but you can walk to ~30 feet from the bar over to the Faster Basset counter and order crepes, sandwiches etc. I didnít eat, though prices seemed fair, and the food sounded good. Be awre that itís pretty much all sandwich/crepe lighter fare however. Service was excellent, as the place was pretty deserted when I came in and I had the (hot) bartender all to myself. Nice place, the beer was decent, and Iíll be back again.
