I don’t usually like to write about a brewery I haven’t been to, but this holiday season has been so busy that I haven’t been able to make the quick trip up the Bitterroot to check out Blacksmith Brewing Co.
Because time has escaped me, I don’t want to let another day go by and not bring some attention to the area’s newest brewery.
Located at 114 Main St. in Stevensville, Blacksmith Brewing Co. can be found in a renovated blacksmith shop.
The current beer selection is Cutthroat IPA, Pulaski Porter, Twisted Paddle Pale Ale, Burnt Fork Amber and Brickhouse Blonde.
Mike Howard, formerly of Big Sky Brewing Co, is brewing beer for Blacksmith, and the hours of operation are 3 to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Finally, another tap room open on Sundays.
Eric, Pamela and Mike, I promise I’ll get down there soon. Can’t wait to try your beer and revel in a little Montana history.
