Brewfest this Weekend in Missoula

We Missoulians love our beer, and this Saturday is arguably beer’s biggest day in Missoula.

The 20th annual Garden City Brewfest will take place from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 5, in Caras Park. This year’s event serves as the culmination of the inaugural Missoula Craft Beer Week, which celebrated local brews with a weeklong schedule of special events.

Brewfest is one of my favorite Missoula events. Not only is it super affordable, but also it is super popular. Even if you don’t have a date, you’re bound to bump into someone you know as you weave through the masses during your beer-sampling adventure.

More than 60 beers will be on tap. For just $10, you will receive a 7-ounce souvenir tasting glass and two drink tokens. Additional tokens only cost $1 apiece. So, for $20, you can sample 12 different beers. Now that’s what I call a “beer”gain. (No? Well, I thought it was pretty clever.)

This is definitely an event where it pays to show up early, as there is a limited supply of each brew and the most popular varieties tend to go pretty quickly.

If the impressive variety of beers isn’t enough of a draw for you, the entertainment line-up might just convince you to make an appearance. Live music will be provided by Russ Nasset and the Revelators, Lil Smokies and Sick Kids XOXO.
