The Holidays are upon us, things are sure to be busy at the brewery. We have a whole lot in store for this winter season. We have lots of beer aging in barrels around the brewery, make sure to stay tuned for release dates. We are partnering with South East Alaska Backcountry Adventures this season to sell some guided help skiing trips in Haines AK. Stop by the brewery to learn more.
Beehive Basin Brewery has now been open for a year and a half. We continue to produce the highest quality craft beer that we can make. Back in October in an effort to keep up with demand for our beer we added an additional 15 bbl fermenter and 15 bbl bright tank. We have also added a Crowler machine to our tap room so we can now offer our customers 32oz cans of beer to go. The aprés ski hours have been increasingly busy in the tap room. If you are planning a visit to the brewery you may want to consider showing up earlier in the day so you grab a seat at the bar.
We are now distributing our beer around Big Sky as well as a few locations outside of Big Sky. Keep an eye out for our beer at The Office Lounge in Livingston and Feast Bistro in Bozeman. In Big Sky our beer is available at The Riverhouse, Scissor Bills, Chets, Andiamos, Bucks T4, The Bugaboo, BWOM, Choppers, Lone Peak Cinema, Ousel and Spur, Everetts 8,800 and Headwaters Grill. We also have 32oz Crowler cans available at the Shedhorn Grill located on the south side of Lone Peak.
We have had lots of questions recently about the expansion project going on around our building. As of now we are not planning on expanding the brewery or the tap room. The expansion on the building are currently un-occupied and should be available for rent by this April.
Today marks the 4 month anniversary of our grand opening. Once again we would like to thank everyone who attended the grand opening as well as anyone who has visited our tap room since we have been open. Today also marks then beginning of the ski season here in Big Sky and we couldn't be more excited. Snow is falling and Andy is brewing up delicious beers for the thirsty skiers and snowboarders who will be visiting us this winter.
Since our opening in July we have put out 18 different beers. Although we have been sad to see some of these beers go away we are always excited to try something new. We are currently brewing an India Pale Lager and plan on brewing up a Scotch Ale and a Dark Saison. You may have noticed some whisky and wine barrels around the tap room or have been lucky enough to try our Knob Creek Porter(now on tap) or our Red Wine Barrel Aged Saison. We will continue to experiment with barrel aging and plan on adding some lactobacillus to create some sour beers.
This winter you will be able to find our beer on tap at a few establishments around Big Sky. Our beer will be pouring at Bucks T-4, The Gallatin River House, Bugaboo Cafe, Andiamo Italian Grill and Ousel and Spur.
We will continue to be open every day from Noon to 8pm. So wether your visiting Big Sky or your a local make your way over to the tap room for a pint or a growler fill.
Casey & Andy
