SEASONAL BEERS

In addition to our 8 flagship beers (plus our house crafted rootbeer), our brewers tap into their creativity to craft recipes for some amazing seasonal beers. Our seasonal beers often vary by brewpub.

In addition to our Tamarack brewed seasonals, each of our pub houses have a tap dedicated to a Montana-made cider or hard seltzer. Please ask your server what's on tap!

*Please note our seasonal beers change frequently and are subject to change from the listed.

Yellowstone-American-Lager

YELLOWSTONE LAGER

AMERICAN LAGER

4.2% ABV | 10 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, MT

I mean, what can we say? It tastes...domestic. Have the brewers become domesticated? Don't worry, they will have plenty of lupulin riddled beers in the near future.

STACHE N PUMPKINS

IMPERIAL SPICED PORTER

9% ABV | 25 IBU

ON TAP IN: Missoula, MT

This beer smells like fall...think tall Ugg boots, jeans, a cape-like knit sweater and one of those "A River Runs Through It" floppy hats. Pumpkin and spices dominate the aroma of this beer with a slight nutmeg zing. This beer was brewed with 300 pounds of local pumpkins from Wicked Good Produce in Whitefish, along with an array of malts and freshly ground graham crackers to give this beer body, density and depth in flavor throughout.

Dark deep mahogany in color, and best enjoyed fireside.

white-ipa-bigdrift

BIG DRIFT HAZY IPA

WHITE IPA

7.3% ABV | 50 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, MT

Cascade, Simcoe, Mosaic, Chinook and Citra hops present grapefruit citrus aroma and notes of apricot and pine. Orange and lemon peels, coriander and grains of paradise provide complex spicy character to balance the smooth flavor of malted wheat. Slightly tart and very thirst quenching, this unique beer took home a variety of awards and is one of Tamarack’s most popular seasonal brews.

headwall-iipa

IMPERIAL IPA

10% ABV | 85 IBU

ON TAP IN: Missoula, MT

A true northwest style imperial IPA loaded with over four pounds of hops per barrel. This beer is dripping with pine needle resin that dominate the nose of this beer, leaving the first sip assaulting your palate with hop flavor more intense than a Chuck Norris high leg kick.

As the flavor progresses, the intense pine fades a happy wave of tropical fruits, taking a ride down the middle of your palate and down into your belly, which will soon be glowing with warmth from the 10% ABV.

lil-hellion-haze

LIL' HELLION HAZE

SESSION IPA

4.8% ABV | 15 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, MT and Missoula, MT

Sometimes we need beers that can be enjoyed throughout a long Montana summer day...cue Lil' Hellion Haze! This session haze explodes with piney resin, orange peel, and mango from the hop additions, but its light body and low alcohol allow for all day consumption, perfect if you're worn out from American-made macrolagers

early-out-chocolate-porter

EARLY OUT IMPERIAL PORTER

BARREL-AGED PORTER

9.2% ABV | 30 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, MT

Barrel-aged chocolate and oat porter with an immense amount of chocolate malt and flaked oats to give this beer a German chocolate cake flair with subtle notes of whiskey and raisin.

Roasty mouthfeel with chocolate complexities. A perfect beer to enjoy next to the fire after a long day's work; you deserve it.

Growler and crowler fills available.

rasp-adder

RASPBERRY SOUR

BARREL-AGED SOUR

5.5% ABV | 7 IBU

ON TAP IN: Missoula, MT

This sour was blended with a barrel-aged blonde, which was aged in barrels for 6 months with the pHunky critters and blended with our kettle-soured Goat Lick Gose. From there, we added raspberry puree to complete the fruity flavor profile. This beer pours a beautiful ruby red color and delivers a juicy punch upfront and gives way to a pleasant bite of tartness.
