An astounding 98 percent of Montanans say outdoor recreation is important to their quality of life. Montana’s outdoor spaces—amazing, unmatched resources including approximately 38 million acres of public land, 170,000 miles of rivers, 3,200 named lakes, and habitat that spans mountain peaks to prairie wilderness—are part of our national identity, and the backdrop for opportunity. Those open spaces are good business. Montana’s Outdoor Recreation Industry accounts for $7.1 billion in consumer spending and more than 71,000 jobs—the 2nd largest sector of the state’s economy. It’s not just revenues or jobs, either. Montana’s natural landscapes define a lifestyle that attracts and fuels thriving businesses from all sectors—which makes Montana a premier location for entrepreneurial start-ups or business relocation.
The Montana Wheat and Barley Committee (MWBC) is the producer-funded and directed checkoff organization for wheat and barley growers in the state. The MWBC is attached to the Montana Department of Agriculture for administrative purposes. The Montana State Legislature appropriates the funds budgeted by the seven (7) MWBC directors. The Committee, by mandate of state statute, is supported exclusively by a self-assessment which producers pay on the sale of their wheat and barley to fund foreign and domestic marketing development and research programs. Wheat and barley are the principal grain crops produced in Montana, and are agricultural resources of the first magnitude in the economy of the state. These commodities enter a domestic and world market that is highly competitive.

Blacksmith Brewing Company opened on October 25th, 2008. The building that houses our brewery and taproom was built in 1908. It began as a steam laundry and later became a blacksmith shop.

It took a great vision to see what it could become and a lot of hard work. Blacksmith Brewing Company is located in Stevensville, Montana. A town rich in history, a valley surrounded by beauty, and a blue-ribbon river close at hand. You will be hard-pressed to find a better place on earth, with beer this good!
