Cold Smoke Scotch Ale

Readers' Pick

Also, Best Microbrewery

You can only taste Cold Smoke for the first time once. But once has proven enough to hook an entire community on Kettlehouse’s signature brew, and on any given day you’ll hear taproom regulars say to out-of-towners, “You’ve got to try the Scotch Ale. It’s Missoula’s best beer.” Fans of the brewery are by no means exclusive to Cold Smoke. Those rich flavors and smokey undertones tend to fade with too much exposure and the need for a Fresh Bongwater or Eddy Out grows with each pint of the dark stuff. Kettlehouse understands the need for balance. Newbies come for Cold Smoke. Regulars stay for so much more.
