8 regular beers on tap plus 8 rotating taps, and occasional hand pump and firkens, make this the widest selection of beers styles and often the best, of any brewery in town. Seating is limited and you may be next to a rack of wood barrels aging some fantastic things.

Tiny tap room set up. Attached to a bar next door (check their taps). I could see that parking and seating could be an issue at peak times. Friendly folks and service. 16 beers on at my time of visit! Many different styles, Belgians, sours , ipa, dipa, smoked etc. Wish these guys were in Missoula!

Carters is te flagship tap room in Billings, in my opinion. The brewer pushes the envelope and favors Belgian style beers, which of course I do as well. I recently had a Belgian Blone that was quite tasty. Carters usually has a good ten beers on tap with a wide variety of styles, so you are very likely to find somethingyou like. The alchol percentages range between 3.5% and 9.8%, so if you order a coupleon the high end, youíd better have a designated driver.

I like the place, as itís an old building, and it also helps that itís right across from my workplace. However, it is such a small space, especially as they try to expand their production, or when they barrel age beers. If youíre going to go, I highly recommend going on an off day, or right when they open, as otherwise it often becomes standing room only. I like that Carterís is experimental with their brews, trying many different types - if you want to try something new, Carterís is the place in Billings to go. Unfortunately, their beers tend to be overly hoppy for my tastes, but thatís for another place.

cramped, low-light taproom. full crowd early evening friday night. surprisingly good IPA but poor pilsener. loud atmosphere, limited seating due to the popularity and limited hours - montananís gotta get their three pints in before 8pm close.

Visited on a Saturday, early evening before much of a crowd arrived. Sure as shit, when it hit 6pm, this place got packed. Very much an industrial vibe, the build is the old brick and morter construction with tons of exposed iron. Brewing is done right on the floor, 10-20 feet from where you sit. I didnít count, but there must have been at least ten brews on tap, maybe twelve. The server was helpful selecting a brew for my wife and of the four we tried three were above average. $3/pint and $7/growler fill is a great price. No food, just popcorn.

If you want to try a few of Carters brews, this is the place to do it. Unfortunately, Montana law limits them to being open for a mere four hours per day, and limits you to three pints in those four hours. Pretty much everything you need to know is written on the ginormous blackboard behind the bar. Right next to the railroad tracks, so you will hear the occasional train come rumbling by. The service was prompt but the vibe here doesnít exactly make me enthused to go back.
