mda-winterfest-logo“This will be the second year Winter BrewFest takes place in Caras Park,” said Winter BrewFest committee chair Ellen Buchanan. “We wanted to preserve the same fun outdoor atmosphere as last year, but give guests more room to move freely among the beer selection, food, and great music. We’ve designed a spacious layout this year and are bringing in even more winter brews to taste. It will be an exciting evening downtown and will just add to all the fun we have year-round in DowntownMissoula.”

In addition to hosting three dozen microbrews from around the region, Winter BrewFest will showcase the musical talent and tasty eats that make Downtown Missoula a vibrant place to connect – even in the winter. Entertainment will be provided by The Idle Ranch Hands and food will be provided by El Cazador and Burns Street Bistro. There will be lots of ways to stay warm throughout the event.

Winter BrewFest is sponsored by Kettlehouse Brewing Co. and Qdoba. More information can be found online on the MDA website or by contacting the MDA staff via phone (543-4238).
