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.

headwall-iipa

HEADWALL IIPA

DOUBLE IPA

9.7% ABV | 75 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, MT

Pine needles dripping with resin and farmers market funk dominate the nose of this beer, and the first sip will assault your palate with hop flavor as intense as a Chuck Norris high leg kick.


As the flavor progresses, the intense pine fades and a hoppy wave of tropical fruits jump on board to take a ride down the middle of your palate and into your belly, which will soon be glowing with warmth from the higher ABV.

Growler and crowler fills not available.

SUMMER SOUR SERIES

VARIETY OF AGED SOURS

4.5-5.5% ABV | 7-15 IBU

ON TAP IN: Lakeside, MT

Raspberry pHunkenstein is currently on tap for our Summer Sour Series. This beer was blended with a barrel-aged sour blonde, which was aged in barrels for 6 months with the pHunky critters (Brettanomyces, Lactobacillius, and Pediococcus) and kettle sour goes. From there, we added 88 pounds of fresh raspberry puree to complete the fruity flavor profile. This beer pours a beautiful ruby red color and opens up with berry flavor that gives way to a pleasantly tart finish. If you close your eyes and feel every sip, it might just taste like Montana's wild sunshine.
