BEER FACTOIDS

  • All About Hop
    Hop was used as flavorings as early as 400 BC by captive Jews in Babylon, but historians think that the real reason it was used as additive was for its antiseptic properties. By adding hops, brewers didn't have to have high alcohol content to prevent spoilage. This meant less grains and therefore more profit.

05/12  Coming Soon:  Baetis Belgian Orange

05/12 Coming Soon: Baetis Belgian Orange

MRBC will be kegging out our first seasonal beer of the season on Friday, May 4.  Baetis Belgian Orange will be available in the taproom from Friday afternoon, and will hit the Bozeman area shortly after that.  We'll update the "Catch the River" page with locations serving the brew as we get orders.

Why Baetis, you ask?  Baeits are a mayfly that are generally know as being super delicious to trout and possibly having a higher protein value than other insects--they LOVE THEM.  This hatch usually announces the true beginning of the fishing season in MT.
