Chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain visited Livingston, Montana for his show, “No Reservations,” which aired August 24. Of all the Montana beers to have with a freshly caught brown trout? He chose Bayern’s Dancing Trout, or, rather, his fishing guide served it up with the fried trout.
And while that short segment of the show was absolutely fascinating and fun to watch, I was actually more curious about what kind of whiskey Bourdain was drinking with legendary author Jim Harrison at variouis bars in Livingston.
I would’ve killed to be fly on the wall or to see footage they didn’t show for the copious profanities. Harrison is an amazing poet, and his love for Montana and big, brown trout is almost as legendary as his barroom antics.
It’s nice to see a Montana brewery get some great product placement on a national television show. Good on ya, Bayern.
