• Rule of Thumb
    Before thermometers were invented, brewers would dip a thumb or finger into the mix to find the right temperature for adding yeast. Too cold, and the yeast wouldn't grow. Too hot, and the yeast would die. This thumb in the beer is where "rule of thumb" comes from.

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.
