Montana Ale Works, based in Bozeman, is an award-winning community gathering place that has been dedicated to local, sustainable food and beverage sourcing since 2000.
You might be familiar with them since they’ve won “Best of Bozeman” in four major categories for the past 6 years running, but did you know their menu sources fresh, local ingredients and is handmade from scratch daily? No small feat when you’re the highest volume dinner-only restaurant in Montana! For an establishment of their size, Ale Works is recognized as an innovative leader of sustainable sourcing. When looking for a supplier, first they look to their valley, then their county, then within a 300-mile radius.
When asked why they value buying from local farms and ranches, they said, “Our investment in them keeps dollars in local communities and supports regenerative agriculture. It is important to us to support a resilient food system that we can continue to draw from in the future.”
In addition to supporting local agriculture, Ale Works partners with Happy Trash Can Curbside Composting. In 2018 they started diverting 100% of their food waste from the landfill!
It’s more than a meal. When you support Abundant Montana restaurants, you support local livelihoods!
