BREW FEST POSTPONED:
In the interest of the health, safety, and well being of everyone, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone Tap into Montana Brew Fest, currently scheduled for April 18th. We are asking those that have scheduled events during craft beer week to do the same.
We want to ensure that our staff, volunteers, breweries, vendors, and patrons are all safe and healthy and hosting an event of this size just isn't prudent at this time. We are so grateful for our sponsors and those that have put in hours of work to plan this event. We will keep you posted as the situation develops and we know more information on when it might be safe to hold such an event.
If you have purchased tickets, we ask that you hang onto those tickets as they will be valid when the event does go on. If you prefer to request a refund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are strange and unprecedented times with much uncertainty. Many of our small business owners have made difficult decisions to close their businesses for the unforeseeable future. Most of the breweries in our state have closed. We have closed our own shop and are working remotely for as long as we can. If you have a way to support the small businesses in your community during this time, please do so. We hope to see you all real soon!

BREW FEST DETAILS
CRAFT BEER SAMPLING
Sample craft beer from 25 Montana breweries. Paid admission gets you a free sampler glass and unlimited samples (no tokens or tickets required).

Jess Atkins is a native Montanan singer/songwriter continuing the tradition of great american troubadours. His proficient finger and flat picking styles immediately bring to mind such players as: Leo Kottke, John Fahey, Keller Williams and Dave Matthews. Growing up as a self-taught musician, Jess' lyrics and compositions hide his young age, sounding more like some one who's been at it for 45 years. Pulling subject out of thin air, his songs reflect melodies and interpretations of subject we all think about, but can't articulate. Along with his self-penned compositions, he easily blends in timeless classics that paved the way for acoustic singer/ songwriters. His adept versions of songs like Danny O'Keefe's "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues", Santo and Johnny's "Sleepwalk" and other blues and country classics, make you feel like he wrote them himself. A stunning instrumentalist and a true showman, Jess Atkins is a must see for any music enthusiast.
Milton Menasco & The Big Fiasco
Milton Menasco & The Big Fiasco are a Rural Rock, Reggae and Funk explosion. Known for fiery guitar playing, soulful singing, great grooves and catchy songs, Menasco and his band The Big Fiasco have a sound that is energetic, heartfelt and will leave you wanting more. Menasco has toured across the country but has a special place in his heart for his home state of Montana. As Menasco puts it, “There is something about Montana that just grabs you and doesn’t let go, the fact that we get to travel around this incredible state doing what we love…well we really are Livin’ the Dream.”An authentic songwriter, Menasco’s songs reflect the people, experiences and accounts from his adventures and life on the road.
