Kettlehouse Brewing

Readers' Pick

Local beer enthusiasts got a big scare this Easter when one of our own, that perpetually smiling taproom hand Angie Oakins, had a serious slope-side accident at Snowbowl. But Tim O’Leary and the Kettlehouse crew proved they can take care of their own when they hosted a big fundraising bash in May to help cover the costs of Oakins’ surgery. The event gave locals the opportunity to give back-with more than just another Best of Missoula award-to the place many consider an after-hours office, or home away from home. Oakins is back now, thank the brew gods, and as chipper as ever though still healing. All that concern goes to show it isn’t just the beer that makes the brewery.
