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.

RED BUS SUMMER BOCH

DOPPLE BOCK

6.2% ABV | 28 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, MT

Don't be fooled by its deep mahogany color, this is an easy drinking lager beer. The medium body lends itself nicely to a floral nose. The malt bill gives way to flavors like graham cracker and toffee with slight roasty finish. Sip on this summer bock and dream of soaking in the Going-To-The-Sun-Road mountain air while cruising in an iconic red bus, the Rubies of the Rockies.

Growler and crowler fills available.

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.

2DUBS DOUBLE IPA

IMPERIAL INDIA PALE ALE

10.4% ABV | 65 IBU

 

ON TAP IN: Missoula, MT

What happens when a brewer turns forty?! A true Northwest double IPA that is loaded with brutal intentions and a silly amount of citrus forward hops to kick your teeth in. The best way to roll over the hill in our minds.

Full flavored IPA with loads of dank citrus and a clean finish to leave your palate begging for more.

RASP-ADDER SOUR

BARREL AGED SOUR

5.5% ABV | 7 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, 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.
