Senator Max Baucus announced his latest “Montana Jobs Economic Engine” yesterday, highlighting the state’s  29 small breweries for providing more than 250 jobs and supporting the state’s grain industry. Baucus says "Montana’s small brewers are expanding and hiring new workers while making great beer out of montana’s world-class grains. I’m proud to recognize their hard work and innovation and will keep working to make sure our small businesses have the tools they need to succeed and hire more folks.  "

Montana has the second-highest number of small breweries per capita in the nation.
