Brewing A Montana Business

Shawn and Kelley Christensen moved to the Flathead Valley for the great hiking and decided to stay for the beer. They decided the great little town of Columbia Falls could really use a brewery.

Desert Mountain Brewing is about more than handcrafting great beer in the mountains - it's about contributing to the community with a product the locals will be proud of, through give-back programs like the Benefit Brews, by attracting visitors passing through Columbia Falls on their way to Glacier National Park, and by giving a generation that is both connoisseur of beer and cultivator of family a comfortable place to stop for a craft beer.

Desert Mountain Brewing is thrilled to be the closest brewery to Glacier National Park. The DMB Draughthaus is conveniently located in the new Cosley building on Nucleus Avenue, downtown Columbia Falls. Daytime childcare is located downstairs at Outside Kids, and fabulous Montana-Italian dinner fare is located right next door at the Three Forks Grille.

Along with handcrafted brew, we will have live music and other events throughout the year. Swing by Desert Mountain Brewing, have a pint and learn about our passion and labor!

    Brew Daze
    Unlike larger breweries, Desert Mountain retreats back to the grassroots of brewing. This is no push-button brewery; handcrafted means handcrafted. Shawn, Kelley, Darin and I may drink a lot of beer while brewing, but we work damn hard while drinking that beer. On average we brew 2 days a week, producing around 15 half-barrel kegs. [...]
