Finally, it’s here!
Saturday marks the 25th round of Garden City Brewfest, and we can’t wait to party hardy with you all down in Caras Park on what is certainly going to be a beautiful and sunny day. Right?
Last month we guaranteed you a great line-up of local, regional and national beers at Brewfest. Well, dear Trailheads, we now we have the official list in hand and are proud to report that we did not mislead you.
Montana’s largest beer festival will feature more than 70 different drafts on tap as well as a wine bar and hard cider bar. Be sure to show up early because some of these brews are limited release!
Brewfest will also feature live music from Rotgut Whines, Letter B and Dodgy Mountain Men.
Admission is free, but if you want to sample the beer (and trust us, you do) you can get a commemorative glass, wristband and three beer tokens for $15.
