Garden City BrewFest

Readers' Pick

Way back in 1993 a collection of local business leaders thought it might be a good idea to serve a bunch of craft beer at Caras Park and call it a festival. That inaugural BRIWFest (the name came from the businesses: Bayern Brewing, the Rhino, Iron Horse Brew Pub, and Worden’s) went well enough to earn a second year, a third, and, in 2003, officially became the Garden City BrewFest. The annual celebration of Missoula’s rich craft brewing history continues to draw enormous crowds and adventurous drinkers 18 years later. Garden City BrewFest: Caras Park; Early May annually
