The Golden Triangle is created by following Highway 87 from Great Falls through Fort Benton and on to Havre. Then west on Highway 2 to Shelby and back down Interstate 15 to complete the triangle.
This area is known for its rich agricultural history and modern production of barley, wheat and other grains - making it ideal for our brewery to create one-of-a-kind Golden Triangle beers for your enjoyment.

We have selected family farms and companies within Montana's Golden Triangle to provide us with the freshest ingredients and create unique and hyper local brews with a flavor profile that showcases our terroir.
• Hazy IPA ABV: 6.7% IBU: 44
Although the origin of the name Whoop-Up has been lost in time, this trail from Fort Benton to Lethbridge, Alberta was traversed by whiskey runners as well as the Mounted Police from the 1850s-1880s.
This Hazy IPA is reminiscent of the clouds created along the Whoop-Up.
Barley and Durum from Farm Power Malt along with raw oats from O’Hara Land & Cattle compliment the citrusy dry-hop of Montana-grown Cascade, Idaho-grown 007 and New Zealand Riwaka.
• Kölsch-style with Honey ABV: 5.5% IBU: 20
The honyoker (hon-yocker) is a word with many interpretations. One such is derived from the German, "honigjager", meaning honey chaser, and was a reference to early Montana settlers pursuing sweet opportunities.
This light German ale uses internationally awarded honey from Yirsa Farms in Big Sandy and 100% Farm Power Malt to create an easy drinking instant favorite.
• American Wheat Ale ABV: 4.8% IBU: 16
The story of Shep is tragic beauty. After losing his best friend, this Shepard met each passing train hoping to be reunited.
This crisp, refreshing ale is handcrafted from hard red winter wheat grown on Bomgardner Farms outside of Loma and custom malted by Farm Power Malt in Power as well as Montana hops from Crooked Yard Hops in the Gallatin Valley.
Shep has a heart of gold, bready notes and a clean finish.
• Steam-style Ale ABV: 5.1% IBU: 41
The steamboat Benton was known as "Old Reliable" and a common sight along the levee as it made 44 trips from St. Louis to Fort Benton, more than any other mountain steamer.
This distinctively American style harkens back to the Gold Rush days with a style unique to those early Western entrepreneurs.
The Bentonbier has a deep golden hue from Montana grown 2-row barley from MaltEurop and is wonderfully balanced with hops from Crooked Yard Hops in the Gallatin Valley.
• Scottish Export Ale ABV: 6% IBU: 24
Just downstream from Front Street, this point allowed eagle-eyed observers to spot the steamboats and signal the community of the approaching excitement.
With a robust reddish color and malty backbone generated from Montana-grown 2-Row barley, this kilted creation has a complex finish which is sure to warm your spirit.
• Jalapeño Honey Hefeweizen ABV: 5.5% IBU: 26
After months of harassment from Dean Bomgardner (Bummy) we have made a jalapeño beer.
With wheat from Bummy's farm, Montana-grown 2-Row barley and jalapeños, this hazy hefe is pleasantly complex with a pepper nose and mild, lingering tingle.
Winner of Beer of the Year at Joplin’s Biggest Little Brewfest.
• Pre-Prohibition Lager ABV: 5.2% IBU: 19
This beer harkens back to the late 1800s when Fort Benton's levee was bustling with trade. It is made with native North American 6-row barley, Hersbrucker hops and flaked maize which adds a hint of sweetness before a clean lager finish. This beer fermented cold with a true lager yeast and then aged for 8 weeks before it was ready to serve. Pour this beauty into a glass to enjoy the light golden color and effervescence.
Availability may vary. Other Recipes are under development and will be announced as they arrive.
