After a successful test run for mug club members last night, Cabinet Mountain Brewing Co. in Montana’s far northwest town of Libby opens to the public today at 11:00 a.m. Congratulations to owners Kristin Smith and Sarah Dinning and brewer Grant Golding on becoming Montana’s 45th operating brewery.
Expected to be on tap for today’s opening are Libby Lager, Bobtail Blonde, Yaak Attack IPA and Ross Creek Red. Two more beers, Pipe Creek Pale Ale and Colter Coffee Porter, are expected to be ready soon.
Visit the brewery on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. and you’ll have the chance to meet Ryan Newhouse, author of Montana Beer: A Guide to Breweries in Big Sky Country, and have him sign one of his popular books for you. I‘m guessing Kristin, Sarah and Grant will be happy to sign it, too.
You’ll find the brewery at 206 Mineral Ave. in downtown Libby.
