While visiting our friends in Billings, Ron knew that Stijn would love the chance to try some Montana beers. Stijn being from Belgium, who regards himself as a "beer connoisseur" if you will, jumps at this opportunity to see if Montana's beer can even come close to the World renowned beers of Belgium. And it just so happens that Billings has a few breweries where Stijn can do a few taste comparisons.
It seems Montana has developed quite a reputation for producing great beer. They do grow some of the finest grains in the nation and location is everything. In an area situated just off the Rocky Mountains that produces barley that is used throughout the country to produce fine beers, domestic and craft. And Montana breweries pride themselves in using Montana grown grain to make their beer.
Now we did draw this out over a two day period, starting with visiting the "Montana Brewing Company" located at 113 N. Broadway. Why did this brewery get picked first? Well it was Sunday and it was the only one open, that's why.
