Comment Archives: Stories: Food & Drink: Happiest Hour

Re: “Bayern Brewery does the "Inconceivable"

Enjoyed my first sixer today (which I look forward to returning to the taproom). I was familiar with the concept from other breweries (my hometown brewery Troegs has done a "Scratch" series for years now). I'll admit, I saw the word "tropical" in the description and kinda brushed it off as Bayern chasing fads. Bought a sixer today nonetheless and boy was I happily surprised. Lager skunky-goodness with an appropriately balanced hop bill. Wow. I'd drink this thing year round. Well done Bayern, you never disappoint. Excited for more in the series.

Re: “Happiest Hour: Rough Stock Saloon

Great place for a Cold Micro beer or a burger. One of the best burger I have ever had!

Re: “Happiest Hour: Rumour

have been here for 2 lunches, 2 dinners and for a few drinks with friends. So, I feel like my experiences provide enough to express this review. Am in their neighborhood.

Clearly, They are trying hard.

Consistently understaffed.

Wait staff is stressed. So busy that they don't have time to be friendly or they lack confidence. They struggle with making a recommendation and seem to always need a reminder to get what you need. Even getting the check takes a long time. Owners are doubling as bus personnel and can be pretty touchy with staff.

Overpriced in every respect

With few exceptions, portions are smaller than any other higher priced restaurant in Montana. Particularly the steaks.

Interesting design. Relaxing. Good acoustics. Nice variety in seating options.

Price of booze is outrageous. Clearly subsidizing rest of operations. And, they offer nothing special unless wine is very very important to you.

They are marketing as finer dining but it really is not.

Re: “Happiest Hour: Eric Ryan Simmons at Plonk

I sure hope Plonk has Montana Distillery vodka . Their ginger, bacon pepper raspberry and woody street vodkas just won gold silver and bronze medals at the LA spirits show.Their ginger Moscow mules are divine.

Re: “Happiest Hour: Drum Coffee

I absolutely love this place. The coffee is amazing. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. I might also add that their chorizo empanadas are the best I've had north of Albuquerque.

Re: “Happiest Hour: Buzzed Yoga at Missoula Brewing Company

Boozing and doing yoga, now that's trendy!

Yoga is good!

Using yoga to sell booze, not so much.

New Missoula....

Re: “Happiest Hour: Draught Works' Berliner Weisse

I can't wait! In the mid- or late '90s, another brewer in Missoula (I think it was Beargrass Brewing, a predecessor to Kettlehouse) put out a Berliner Weisse. They offered a flavoring called Woodruff that was dark green in color and tasted like vanilla. I remember enjoying a few pints of it at the Rhino and I've often wondered if we'd see it again.

Re: “Happiest Hour: The Thomas Meagher Bar

Was there on Sunday to watch Football. They definitely need to change the way they run things a bit. They decide which TVs show which games and they refuse to change this to accommodate customers. If you are there with someone who wants to watch a different game than you, you may have to sit at different tables. Ridiculous. They have one game on sound and Sunday they had it on the red zone channel, which bounces around from game to game. It's awful. They need to get some managers that are actually interested in sports. The sauce on the "wings" tasted good, but they're not wings, they're chicken legs. Way too big and greasy for me. I would definitely prefer wings. Seems wrong to have wings on the menu and then serve people legs. Other than that, the renovation looks really nice and I'm sure they will be busy there for a while. Maintaining a crowd once the newness wears off will be the key.
