Visited after the Montana Brewers Festival on a Saturday night. This place was packed and loud with college kids. A nice tap and bottle list, good prices and quick friendly service. Long and narrow bar.

What a fun place. Long and kind of narrow, single pool table in the back. Staff were quick, efficient, friendly even though it was crowded. Blackboard menus didnít include the brewery names, but pretty much everything was local/regional. Fun crowd. Iíll be back.

GO HERE IF YOU ARE ABLE! A great MT bar and awesome beer selection! Not a dining establishment per se, but a great place to hang, shoot pool, and sample some great brews!

Parksy and I sunk a few here on my birthday. Unassuming one-room taphouse with a pool table at the back. I estimate 30-40 taps, all craft, with an excellent representation of local Montana product including two breweries that were new to me and two beers that were not even in the database. Friendly staff, excellent prices, clean lines, chilliní vibe. Iíd come back in a heartbeat.

Hole in the wall with 40-50 taps. Local and regional with a couple of Belgian and macros. Older sparse crowd at lunch time. Service needs work.

Had a great time here! Small, but solid tap list. Great prices, and good people. Definitely my top bar in Missoula.

Dropped by for just one beer on a hot summer night. It was still early so there wasnít much of a crowd. The tap lineup was nice, especially for a weary traveler seeking a wide array of local/Montana beers all in one place. Place kinda has a dive atmosphere which I guess suits their regular clientele just fine.

Came here with javit and crew, for his birthday. HUGE selection of local taps, as well as a respectable selection of other Western U.S. craft taps, nice to see Celebration on tap here. As was noted in the earlier review, this IS the local college hangout, so itís packed, and loud, and boisterous. No food here, either. That said, if you went earlier in the day, youíd be hard pressed to find a better tap selection anywhere in Montana.

A must visit when youíre in Missoula. The outside can be a bit off putting having to walk through a herd of smokers standing on the steps, but once youíre through the smoke the Rhino is a great sight. Huge well worn bar on the left, with 50 taps lined up behind, and a cask engine at the far end of the bar. Also, if youíre a whisky drinker, then youíll be more than happy seeing the bottles on the back bar. Plenty of comfy barstools to ease you up to the bar, and plenty of tables and stools throughout the place. Staff were very friendly; listening to their banter with the locals was very comedic! Beer selection on the day I was there was fantastic, and there was a cask from Big Sky on too. Also thought it was a good touch in having 3 serving sizes of glasses, especially when there were a few high alcohol beers on offer (The Stoic, Perserverance, Mach 10 to name a few). Pricing is ridiculously good, as is the pricing of the single malt whiskyís. Great atmosphere, great people, great bar, great town.

A ridiculously successful effort on so many levels. You would expect that somewhere in western Montana--probably in many somewheres, you might expect--that someone would figure out how to make money running a bar. And they would get good at it. The Rhino is Exhibit A in the case for good business models in this town. First up, stuff I donít really care about: bacon vodka. Served in their already-legendary bloody marys, they make quite a combination. Other stuff I donít care about: fancy multi-ingredient shots served for the delectation of UM sorority girls and other coeds. These rolled out by the trayful both times I was here. They were clearly made with care, though I didnít listen for the names or look too closely at the ingredients. What I do care about: the beer. dozens of taps, lined up in faucet after faucet all in two rows on the barback. Clean lines. Mainstream favorites as well as imports and tons of local and regional craft beers. Big beat-up bartop. Comfortable stools. Comfortable booths and tables. Peanut shells everywhere. Friendly people everywhere, students and townies alike. Pool and shuffleboard. No fights or aggro at all either time I was here. Very friendly bartenders who know their lineup pretty well. This is the beer bar of choice in Missoula from what I can see.
