Best Breweries in Bozeman

On Feb 01, 2024

Bozeman loves breweries! They are all over town, tucked into neighborhoods, some big, some small. Each Bozeman brewery has its own unique vibe. To find the best breweries in Bozeman we made sure to visit each one's a tough job but someone had to do it!


We should start with the Bozeman Brewery which has been around since before breweries were cool. Tucked over in the northeast part of town, Bozeman Brewing is no longer a quiet place off the beaten path. From year-round to seasonal selections, there's something for every beer taste here. The local favorite is Bozone Select Amber Ale and for good's a perfect balance of medium body and light hops. We also love the Gallatin Pale Ale, a nice lighter beer with great flavor. The tasting room is open seven days a week, the popcorn is always on and they have Sunday FUNDay's where 50 cents of every pint sold goes to a local non-profit. You can find Bozeman Brewing's beer all over Bozeman, but it's always fun to go to the source.


With the amazing Bridger views from the MAP Brewing patio, this is one of the most popular breweries in Bozeman. There's nothing better than sitting on their amazing patio overlooking the Bozeman pond with the Bridger Mountains in the background. In the winter, MAP is packed daily as the hot spot for skiers after a day at Bridger Bowl. Inside it feels like a ski lodge with a huge rock fireplace, wood trim, and of course, those mountain views. The mission at MAP is simple...craft and drink great beer. They also have great food!


Even with the new upstairs expansion and extra patio seating, it can be hard to find a chair at Outlaw on any given day. Outlaw Brewing wins for best neighborhood brewery in our book. If you aren't looking, you could easily miss it. Unless of course, it is a sunny afternoon and you notice the big door open on the side of a warehouse with many happy people sitting on the patio. It's located behind Target on the edge of Cattail Subdivision and has become the place to go for those in the northwest part of town. It's super family-friendly with a popcorn machine, a corner full of games, and some outdoor space for kids to run while adults enjoy a Horse Thief IPA or two.


A little less known is Bunkhouse Brewery, which in a town where it's hard to find an open table at most breweries is a good thing. They sit across from the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, making it a great spot to head before an MSU game or event. They have a second location in Four Corners. This is a big space with garage doors for those nice summer days. At the Bunkhouse tradition matters...they are committed to old brewing conventions and making beer with a passion.


Mountains Walking is a great place to go for a meal and a delicious brew. Located on the northeast side of town, the space feels cozy and bright with an entire wall of windows and long community-style tables. Mountains Walking's menu changes with the seasons, and often features locally grown ingredients. The tachos are a crowd favorite...tater-tot nachos, what's not to love?!


Bridger Brewing is located right on the edge of the Montana State campus which makes it a popular spot for students, MSU employees, locals, and football fans. We really love the atmosphere here with the wrap-around bar, tall ceilings, and second-floor patio. The specialty pizzas here are fantastic, some even say it's the best pizza in Bozeman. The sausage is made in-house with meat from Big Timber, Montana, the dough is made with Wheat Montana flour and the mozzarella is smoked in-house. Hard to beat that! We also can't say enough about their Three Forks location! 


Just a hop, skip and a jump from Bozeman is the Madison River Brewing Company in Belgrade, and no matter where you are, it's worth a visit! Their brews like the Salmon Fly Honey Rye and Hopper Pale Ale are staples in the Montana beer scene, so what's better than going to the source? What we love most about this brewery is its no-nonsense attitude. The decor is simple, the place is filled with locals and the beer is good. What else do you need?
