Missoula’s Craft Breweries

Missoula, Montana's Craft BreweriesIf you’re at all into drinking beer, then you probably have heard of the craft brew craze taking over taps across America.  Craft Breweries, which are defined by the Brewers Assocation as “small, independent and traditional” breweries, have seen a 15% increase in sales over the course of last year. Though annually craft breweries only produce about 6-million barrels, which is a mere 10% of national beer sales, it’s hard to deny the popularity of these increasing local fixtures. Missoula ranks #2 in the nation for craft breweries per capita, second only to Portland, Oregon.  Book your room at our beautiful Missoula Bed and Breakfast today, and discover the thriving craft brew culture in Missoula.

Camas blooming in Packer Meadows.

A few nights at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast is the perfect way to celebrate any special occasion. Plan to bring your father (or the father of your children) here over Father’s Day, which takes place June 19, 2011. Treat your spouse to a romantic getaway here on your anniversary. Bring your mother, your spouse, your child or your best friend to our Montana Bed and Breakfast on their birthdays.

The best gift you can give a person is the gift of time. This is especially true for people who don’t get to spend enough quality time together. If you live far from your parents, what a treat to spend a few days here, away from all routines. If you haven’t had a date with your spouse since 2008, what better way to say “I love you” than to whisk him or her away for a romantic getaway in Missoula? You get the picture.

Folks who enjoy outdoor recreation will find the area in and around Missoula full of possibilities. Nearby Pattee Canyon Recreation Area has picnic sites and miles of trails suitable for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. There is whitewater rafting on the Blackfoot River, the Clark Fork River, and the Bitterroot River. Nearby Lolo Pass is an ancient trail long used by Native Americans and later used by Lewis and Clark; there is a wonderful 8-mile hike from Lolo Pass to Packer Meadows that is particularly lovely in late June and early July, when wildflowers are blooming.

Downtown Missoula has many eclectic shops and art galleries. Guests of our Missoula Bed and Breakfast who find urban hikes more compelling than mountain hikes will find Missoula fun to explore. Carousel Park hosts a Sunday Market  and Festival each week during the summer, where vendors sell fresh produce and a variety of home-spun products.

There are several restaurants in Missoula appropriate for celebratory dinners. The Silk Road bills itself as “Missoula’s newest adventure in global cuisine and old-world hospitality”. It features an impressive number of wines by the glass and tasty, creative dishes from all over the world. The Pearl Cafe features hearty Montana cuisine made with the freshest local and organic ingredients. Menus change with the seasons. The menu also changes frequently at The Red Bird, which serves sustainably grown fresh foods. Live music accompanies diners most Monday evenings.

One of the most delightful aspects of our work is helping guests of our Missoula Bed and Breakfast celebrate their special occasions.
