Fresh POURS

Cranky Sam Brewing provides a wide array of craft beer styles to sip in our open atmosphere and lots of seating for your party, big or small. Our wine list is curated by experienced wine lovers and covers the full spectrum of delicious vino. Feel free to bring in food from wherever you’d like with great local options just outside our door. Sharing (with your bartender) is optional.

KILLER LOCATION

Located right on Main Street in the heart of downtown Missoula, our modern atmosphere brims with local history. During renovations, we uncovered incredible artifacts including a 1930’s mural of a woman hidden behind layers of brick. Unlike other Missoula breweries, we have no ounce limit and are able to stay open later to ensure your night ends right.
