Missoula's unpredictable spring weather broke long enough this year for the Garden City to celebrate Brewfest's 17th annual lineup of the region's best local and national suds. As always, the event drew thousands of thirsty tasters, filling Caras Park with the "mmm"s and "ahh"s of a refreshed populace. This year judges from the Zoo City Zymurgists voted Missoula's own Highlander Scottish ale the Best Montana Beer. But judging by the crowd—and your overwhelming vote for Brewfest in this category—we're guessing many of you found your own best beer this year. Garden City Brewfest: Caras Park; Early May Annually
