Whitefish City Council Approves Brewery

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - The Whitefish City Council gave approval Monday to a man wanting to open a Bonsai Nanobrewery in the Whitefish mall.

This Nanobrewery will serve pints and growlers to residents. The Nanobrewery serves smaller volumes of beer brewed compared to a micro brewery which is required by state law to serve customers a maximum of 48 ounces of beer per day.

The Brewery will be located inside the mountain mall in the food court area. Whitefish City Manager Chuck Stearns said the new business will increase visitation at the mall.

"All communities want more business and economic activity, so it's good, it's nice to see something diverse go into the mall you know it might be a nice little attraction to bring people into the mall," Stearns said.

Council members also approved the building of a new bed in breakfast that will be located on East Blanchard Lake road.
