Established in Billings, MT in July of 2007on historic Montana Avenue, Carter’s Brewing is family owned and operated. The business was formed at about the same time that our son Carter James was born, hence the name. Construction and renovation of the brewery building which houses our taproom was done with help and support from an extended group of family and friends. We initially operated on a 7 bbl system that was pieced together from old dairy tankage with some modern additions until the Spring of 2012. In our first year we produced 475 bbls of beer in over 70 different styles. Annual production volume5800 US barrelsBozeman Brewing Company is a microbrewery in Bozeman, opened by Todd Scott in 2001.

The roots of Montana’s liquor licensing system date back to 1933, when Prohibition ended and taverns sprung up throughout the state. In 1947, the state enacted a quota system, allowing one tavern for every 1,500 residents of a city. However, the taverns in existence at the time were grandfathered in, and what the state considers to be an excess of liquor licenses now exists in Montana cities. Bayern Brewery was opened in 1987 as the “only German brewery in the Rockies,” and today is the oldest operating brewery in Montana. Brewers Thorsten Geuera and Jürgen Knöller are both from Germany and use all German equipment and recipes.
