Would have previously said this was the best place in Missoula...previously as in before Imagine Nation...but they are still a very close second. The taproom is big but well done...fun place and vibes (patio too...but too cold when I visited)...great staff...really enjoyed their attention and conversation. Loved the Scepter Head IPA, the Last Rites Mexican Chocolate Porter, and the Potato with a Mohawk Double Rye IPA. Also notable were the Dixon Melon Gose and Pineapple Express Tropical IPA. All in all a good time and a must visit when in Missoula.

This place is big, nice big patio, huge indoor seating area and large bar with a nice view of the brewhouse. Very lively on a sunny Friday afternoon, nearly every table full, but easy to get a seat at the bar. They were very dsciplined, not serving folks who were standing at the bar unless you lined up at either end - confusing for a few folks who didnít know that particular rule. They had a dozen beers on offer, decent variety, but only served pints, in the much-maligned shaker glasses, but staff did give samples in little baby hefeweizen glasses. Change the policy on pints and theyíd get a 5 for atmosphere. Fun place.

Newer spot in town, still has a shine on the interior. Somewhat warehouse-ish feel owing to the industrial design of the place, but not in any way cold or uninviting (quite the opposite with the chatty crowd that was there filling the place). About 5 or 6 taps, and between Parksy and Grippitis and I we tried almost all. They donít do tasters, so full pints for us all (no complaints here!). We had a basket of bar munchies (not sure if they serve real food). The beers were terrific, I hope these guys stay around.

Solid place .Decent selection of taps; I believe there are 8 taps, or so. The bartenders were great. The smoked porter and IPA were quite good, actually. Thereís not much to this place in all honesty, but I liked it, due to its simplicity. Pretty packed on a Friday night. I made my visit prior to flying back home, while on business, so Iím not sure how it is on "normal" nights. Definitely try the Scepter Head IPA - great beer. Thereís a BBQ hut outside, which Iím told is decent to not very good, but that really has nothing to do with Draught Works, per se. Close to where I work on business - St. Patrickís. Cheers.

First, all the beers are good, even if not your style, nine were on for my first visit. Prices are great and the service is outstanding! Went early one day when things were slow, will go back when busy to compare.

This is a neat space in a quiet Missoula neighborhood not too far from downtown. We visited on a hot July afternoon. They had a guy playing acoustic tunes on their deck and all the doors were open for a neat summertime feel. Like most Montana breweries, they donít have food and youíre limited to 48 oz of beer. They did have some little snacks available, and the salsa we got with some chips was awesome. The three beers we sampled were so-so, but I go back again if I had the opportunity. Brewery #581.

Stopped in on my last trip to Missoula. Always happy to see a new brewery, especially one where the beers are of this quality. The brewery and taproom are situated in what appears to be an old produce warehouse, and while minimalist and industrial-looking, everything is spotless and gleaming, which bodes well for the beers. No real ambiance to speak of, but that takes time, so Iíll give this place a pass on that, though there is certainly nothing unpleasant about the decor, especially with the big doors open and the fresh air coming in. Service was friendly, though nothing special. Our bartender was friendly and polite, though hardly engaging, and did not offer recommendations, though she had no issue pouring us small samples of everything on tap. I also had to use some pretty strong self-control from pinching one of their little taster glasses, those things are awesome. It should be noted, that due to the way Montanaís law work, you can only have 3 pints here, before they tell you to either buy a growler or get out. Not their fault, but the intrepid beer hunter would do well to keep it in mind. Didnít eat here, but they donít have a proper kitchen, at least not yet. They had artisan rolls and cheese curds, but that seemed to be pretty well the extent of it. Tried two of their beers, and wished I couldíve tried more, but I had to hit the road. Both the beers I had here were really tasty, very delicate, and medium-bodied, but dead on-style. I will be back next time.
