Specialty brew available for a limited time is Old Stache. It is brewed in honor of the owners father. At 12% alcohol it has a kick. We paired it with the two Sunday specials-- a Gyro and Shrimp and Grits. Wow! Better than the standbys on the regular menu. Great alternative to a ho hum Sunday Brunch.

Possibly my new favorite location in the Flathead Valley! Stopped by here after a day of snowboarding at Blacktail Mountain and my experience here made my day. Happy hour was from 3-5 and the menu was loaded with value. Their $3 happy hour beers made it easy to try seasonal brews. The food was also delicious. The portions were big... More
