“A block from Bias Brewing and worth checking out. 8 taps, with flights of 4 for $5.25, a great deal. Beer quality was solid, especially the two stouts we tried. Friendly service. The better of the two breweries we visited when passing through.“

“Right in the centre and a block from Kalispell Brewing, this wasn't a bad stop. Flights available, priced by the beer (usually $1.50-1.75 per 4 oz. beer). Beer quality was mediocre to a little above average. Decent service. Nothing special here, but it's a decent stop if you're passing through.“

“Better than any Missoula bottle shop. A couple shelves of MT beers, plus a few more of US stuff, and another one or two of international beers. Very friendly service. Worth a stop if you're passing through Kalispell.“

“In an historic downton location in the town of Kalispell. Easy going if busy. Beers are very solid, varied and without fad chasing. Prices are good.“

“Visited July 2017, group of 5. Place was stacked when we entered, but the waitress did her very best to book us a table for about 45 minutes later. All staff were friendly like that. Beer selection is quite large and varied. The burgers are sublime and you get value for money. Nice ambiance, too, rustic feel. A must visit in the pretty town of Kalispell.“

“After many years (and many beers) and many places...I finally finished my RateBeer quest of visiting and reviewing a craftbeer place in all 50 states plus DC. I couldn’t have completed this on a better note...after arriving from an afternoon in Glacier NP on what was a cold and rainy/snowy day (in the park) that broke into the most spectacular parting of clouds, rainbow, snowcapped mountains everywhere and the most dramatic of sunsets...I ended up at this great brewery in Kalispell. The bar crew there poured me a flight and acknowledged my accomplishment with a hearty toast. Couldn’t have ended better! Thanks guys! As for the brewery...very nice storefront location on main street in a building that I believe was a former car dealership or repair place. There was a bluegrass band playing and a great food truck out back that I partook of. I loved the Rope Tow Pale Ale and the Fresh Hop by Pop IPA. Also noteworthy were the Two Ski Brewski Pilsner and the Cloudcroft IPA. Kalispell Brewing is a must stop while in the area...you’ll enjoy the beers and likely the staff and the place too.“

“Brick and glass building on the main drag in Kalispell. Patio upstairs for those long warm summer days. Short window as there only open from 3pm - 8pm and limit you to 48ozs. That being said, the staff is friendly and the beers were tasty. The selection is small with only 6 or 7 taps. All that being said, how cool is it to have a craft brewery pumping out tasty beers in a small Montana town? Consider yourself lucky Kalispell.“

“Open taproom with quite a bit of room, with a glass wall allowing a view into the brewery. German-centric brewing with evident skill: all beers were good, some were excellent (weizenbock, pilsner). Service was friendly and attentive. At the time of our visit, food was not part of the establishment. I would definitely come back here for the quality of the beer. I hope they thrive!“

“This place has the largest selection of craft beer in the Flathead Valley and is the only one that lets you mix and match your own 6 pack of true craft beer.“

“This place is a destination. No IPA when I was there but the Pils and German yeast Weizen were exceptional. The stout was good too.“

“Pretty good selection. I liked that almost all the bottles were singles and you could make your own sixer with any beer and any size to get a 5% discount. Staff was friendly and prices were pretty good. A must visit as it is the only craft beer store in the area.“

Brix Bottleshop (Beer Store)
101 E CENTER ST, STE 102
“I entered the space from the street side each visit. It is pretty cool as it’s an old-west elevated side-walk sort of thing but with a very updated entrance. This is the typical beer/wine geek sort of space with narrow walkways and lots and lots of craft products. This is a welcome experience compared to all other bottle shops in the extended area. I had that "kid in the candy store" feel here. Everything is very orderly and clean and the vast majority of the offerings here are singles with large swath of all local bottle/canned brews represented. If you’re in the area this is a must visit.“

“Small to medium sized wine & beer store, just a block off the main strip. Good, varied selection of wines as you walk in the main door. Towards the back of the room is the beer, which is sorted by Country, then style. The craft selection seems larger & more varied than Markus Foods in Whitefish, which is welcome. Pricing is roughly the same as MF, but they do have a $0.99c section for bin ends (NOT out of date product), which seemed popular with other shoppers. All bottles come in singles, but you can make your own 6 pack of any beer, any size and get a 5% discount. I bought in multiples of 6 as it seemed daft not too ;) Friendly, welcoming, chatty staff. A nice addition to the area for craft ales.“

“We really enjoyed our meal here and their draft selection offered a nice selection of local Montana brews. It’s not a huge beer selection, but nice variety. They seem to always have some variety of "special" that has elk, yak, or other exotic meat. They also made great soup, salads and grilled veggies. Realize this is a small location that is well visited by the locals as well as tourists; reservations are recommended.“

“Not bad at all for the location. Yes there are only two coolers, but they have a decent selection therein. Worth a stock up stop if you are in Kalispell.“

“Honestly, there are only a couple of coolers here. If you’re in Kalispell for drinking (I don’t know why you would be), go somewhere else. If you happen to be in Kalispell, for some other reason, this place has some things that are above what you find at the gas station. Literally, their whole beer operation consists of 2 coolers in the far right-hand side of the store. Prices didn’t seem outstanding, and there were no 2009 Ivan The Terrible beers left. Actually, the aforementioned fact is why I went. I purchased an elk steak and some emu sausage here. Nice establishment, but they do what they can for Kalispell, which isn’t saying much. There’s some amazing scenery around here.“

“For what is essentially a health food store, the beer selection here was pretty darned decent. 3 big coolers located on the far right wall as you walk in. You pass a good selection of local, North Western & import wines on your right too. Selection was decent enough for me, and on this day they had, amongst others, Sierra Nevada Anniversary Black Barley Wine, Sierra Nevada Anniversary Grand Cru, Sierra Nevada Oliva, Chatoe Rogue Creek Ale, He’Brew Harvest Ale, Year of the Fig, Alaskan Smoked Porter, also picked up a bottle of the local Hidden Valley Dark Mead . There was also a good selection of 6 packs from Big Sky, Deschutes, Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, Bayern. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.“

“One of three health food stores in the Kalispell/Whitefish area, two of which carry beer (the other being Whithey). Small selection, but kudos for selling everything as singles. Nothing rare or unusual, with the single exception of Harvistoun Ols Dubh 40 Year!! But don’t rush over-- I bought the last bottle.“

“One of three health food stores in the Kalispell/Whitefish area, two of which carry beer (the other being Mountain Valley). Pretty disappointing selection really. The beer seeker is much better off sticking with Marcus Foods or Rosauers supermarket. The only beers they had here that weren’t elsewhere were Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale and Alakan Smoked Porter. I didn’t find 80-100 bottles, more like 30-50.“

“Checked this place out on my friend Jason (curly)’s advice. Found nearly a half dozen bottles of 2009 Ivan the Terrible, as well as some others like Red Rocket and Alaskan Smoked Porter. Nothing fantastic, but a nice complement to the selection available at Marcus Foods up the road in Whitefish. These folks also sell homebrew supplies like hops etc. Nice place, the staff were helpful and kind. Got me some organic, free-trade gum. Mmmmmm... $4 chewing gum...“

“Very small organic grocery store. Beer selection is decent. Lots of Sam Smith’s, Alaskan, Rogue, various PNW micros. Very few Belgians, pretty much just Chimay, maybe 2 or 3 others. I didn’t find anything that really wowed me. Not worth going out of the way.“

“I stopped in here because I had a hunch they might have the Ivan the Terrible I had been looking for for a while. To my surprise, they did!!!!!! Sweet, I bought a few bottles of the 09 batch that had been refrigerated the entire time. They also had other good beers. Another cool thing was the fact that they sold hops and other basic homebrew supplies.“
