Micro Breweries and Brew Pubs

The best malting barley in the world is grown in Montana, so it's only natural that many micro breweries would spring up throughout the state. Popular brew pubs are known for their handcrafted ales and lagers and their relaxing atmosphere. Refreshing regional beer and microbrews are also available in restaurants, bars, and retail stores throughout Montana.

Quarry craft beers have earned rave reviews from beer lovers who have sampled the traditonal-style ales in the tap room and at craft brew festivals throughout Montana. Brewer Chuck Schnabel has always appreciated and applied the tradional German purity law known as the Reinheitsgebot, which mandates brewing with the choicest hops, barley, yeast and water. However, beacause of the availability of so many quality ingredients to Montana craft brewers, he has introduced fruity and flavored beers to the tasting room. Whether you prefer a traditional ale or are looking for a modern twist, one taste will you...at the Quarry, we dig beer.
