We were fortunate to pair up with Angel from Dove Chocolates in creating a chocolate and beer pairing event that took place in out Community Room. The pairings were based largely on the 3 Cs of beer/food pairing; Complement, Contrast, and Cleanse.

This past Sunday, Missoula Craft Beer Week wrapped up with the Garden City Brewfest, and even though we didn’t have a beer in the fest, we went down to Caras Park to share in the beer love. The turnout was great and weather opened a window of sunshine and warmth. We managed to drink a […]

We were contacted over the weekend to be part of a marriage proposal. The ruse was to bring the future bride in for an informal interview with her friend (and co-conspirator), while her beau waited in the Community Room with a smile, flowers, and the ring. As Courtney rounded the corner, Lee was standing there […]
We all work hard, and it is important that we play a little as well. So, this Sunday, LPB took a break from building a brewery, and went for fly fishing float on the Bitterroot River. The air was crisp, the sun was intensely warm, and the water was starting to get dirty.
Today, a couple of us from LPB joined the Five Valleys Land Trust, Five Valleys Audubon, and Montana Conservation Corps in constructing a new nature trail along the Clark Fork River near the confluence of Rock Creek. Five Valleys Land Trust had bought the property at the confluence in order to preserve and restore it. Last year […]

Wet spent grains have the protein, fiber, and energy concentration of WBG make them a suitable supplement in ruminant (livestock) diet. The protein concentration and high […]
We headed up to Lost Trail Powder Mountain for their annual Skiesta, which includes a Big Air contest and a pond skim (righteous wipeouts). We meet so many folks who knew we were opening soon, and tons of people that were stoked at the news.
