Cafe Seating on our Sidewalk

We’re thrilled to finally have outdoor cafe seating on the sidewalk in front of The Dram Shop! The City of Missoula and Montana Department of Revenue have been working closely together to create new regulations for sidewalk seating in Missoula’s downtown area for establishments that serve alcohol. We were waiting this spring for them to complete this mission and are so excited to be the first ones through the gates! We teamed up again with McNelis Architects to design an attractive space that was simultaneously urban and comfortable. With 14 new seats surrounded by Loll Design planters chock full of Pink Grizzly flowers, we hope you’ll enjoy our new outdoor space!

Thanks to the Missoula Independent for the Happiest Hour feature!

Smurfs and Beer…Seriously!

This past March, The Mighty Mo Brewing Co. (in Great Falls, MT) held a homebrew contest, and the winner was a Smurf. Seriously. But it’s not quite that simple. The style of beer was a Belgian Saison—a beer brewed with belgian yeast and featuring funky, sweet, and peppery overtones. The beer was brewed by Missoula’s Clint Nissen, and he has his kids to thank for the name.

As he was trying to think up a name, his kids were watching The Smurfs cartoon. So he decided to google Smurf. It turned out to be a Belgian cartoon, and the Saison had a name.

The prize for winning the contest for Clint was to go into The Mighty Mo Brewing Company and brew a batch of ‘Smurf’ on their brewing System. With only 20 kegs available, we were thrilled when Clint called to see if we wanted to serve a keg of the Saison at The Dram Shop in Missoula so that we could give everybody a chance to give it a try.

We’ll be tapping the homebrew keg of Saison this Wednesday June 3rd! Come on by have a pint!
