For the second year in a row, Missoula’s The Dram Shop, has been named Montana’s best beer bar in voting conducted by readers of the Brewers Association’s website, CraftBeer.com.
It is an impressive feat for an establishment that hasn’t been open a full two years. But step inside the warm, friendly, popular haven of frequently rotating taps and you’ll have no trouble understanding why it keeps attracting votes.
Here is the press release from the Brewers Association:
