ALSO, BEST BREWERY: KETTLEHOUSE BREWING
The past year has been a busy one for Kettlehouse Brewing Company. Gold medal wins, human foosball tournaments, a new production facility under construction in Bonner—good news abounds in owner Tim O’Leary’s taprooms. But if there’s one thing that keeps craft beer fanatics coming back day after day, it’s that the Kettlehouse has never lost sight of what it does right. That’s why the brewery introduced Missoula this spring to the latest in river-friendly beer vessels, the 32-ounce aluminum “crowler.” Kettlehouse knows how much the community loves a little Cold Smoke to go, and it’s never finished exploring ways to meet that demand.
