Here is the skeleton of the building before the meat goes in…
We signed our lease back in November and our inches from getting our building design finished. The next step is finding a contractor and purchasing our equipment.
THEN WE APPLY FOR OUR LICENSES!

Last week we had the privilege to be interviewed by Whitefish Community Radio about the progress of the brewery. If you have some time and are interested in learning more about what we’re trying to do up in here in Columbia Falls, give this a read and a listen.
It’s been a long time, but we’re making progress. We’ll be joining the Montana Brewers Association and the Brew News! It feels unreal to think we’re going to be in a national publication in just a few short months. We’ve begun the process of filing for our name and logo trademarks, which we should have wrapped up in several months. We’re making short gains with furniture and bar materials. We should be signing our first lease anytime now, the future is near and it’s feeling really good.
We’ve finally selected a building that we want to pursue in downtown Thompson Falls. We have looked at 5 buildings inside and out over the last 5 months and this is the cream of the crop. I won’t waste any time or space with describing the other buildings, but needless to say they were all too small. The building we shave selected is on main street, it’s got a huge garage for our brewing system (and future expansion). The front has a great site for a tasting room which includes huge windows, a beautiful floor, and room for a nice bar. There is also a huge lot on the side of the building which we can use to build a porch, outside concerts, a beer garden and parking. The building is going to need some work. A new paint job, a new roof, a bit of interior, and some landscaping. But, it’s doable and it’s a reality that is coming closer and closer. Here is a shot of the building. (We will include inside pictures as we progress)
We will post more pictures as we progress with securing a lease.
