Big Sky Brewfest Grows In Eight Years

Posted: Updated:
Big Sky -

Big Sky Resort is getting ready for its largest brewfest ever on Saturday. This year's event has many different features.

The eighth annual Big Sky Brewfest at the Big Sky Resort will be one of the largest brewfests in the state.

The festival will feature 27 breweries with more than 50 types of beer.  Sheila Chapman, Big Sky Resort Public Relations Manager, said there will even be beer for minors.

"We'll also have a brewer that makes their homemade root beer for kids," said Chapman.

Before this year, the highest number of brewers at Big Sky Brewfest was 15.

Chapman said this year's festival has come a long way. Eight years ago, just one local band performed. Saturday three bands will be taking the stage.

"Our headlining band is actually from San Francisco, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers who has been on national TV, morning shows," said Chapman.

Chapman said what makes this brewfest different is the food and kid friendly atmosphere.

"We have fun kids things, like a bouncy house and a big inflatable slide for children to do here as well," said Chapman.

The Big Sky Brewfest runs Saturday 3 - 9 p.m. at the Lone Peak Pavilion.

Brewers from across the country will be at the brewfest, including Ninkasi Brewery in Eugene, Ore. and Samuel Adams from Boston.
