Best Sports Bar

THE PRESS BOX

Readers' Pick

Retirement can be a tough thing to swallow in the sports world—just ask Brett Favre. But Gordie Fix has no problem finally calling it a career. The diehard Griz fan owned this perennial Best of Missoula winner for nearly 25 years before selling the joint last month. Fix knew how to run a good sports bar: lots of flat-screen TVs, lots of affordable eats, lots of beers on tap, lots of memorabilia on the walls and lots of passion for the local team (the crossbar from the 2001 Griz championship game sits prominently in the bar). But he's done, happily turning his attention to family and travel (and more Griz games). While Fix gears up for retirement, we hope the new owners understand just how high the (cross)bar's been set.
