Tamarack Brewing Company

Brew Pub
One of the best

Missoula’s Tamarack Brewing Company is known for Montana craft-brewed beer and a varied Mexican-American menu. The Tamarack overlooks the Missoula Carousel and a beautiful walking trail along the Clark Fork River. Its menu is a bit pricey, but the prime downtown location and exceptional food is worth it.

There is seating downstairs and upstairs, with a bar on each floor.  As it gets warmer, outdoor seating is available: a fine opportunity for a refreshing glass of beer and a view of the river to cool you down in summer heat.

A glass of  “Sip n’Go Naked” apricot ale along with a generous plate of crisp nachos, was the perfect appetizer that got me excited for the next dishes to be served. The half pound serving, topped with melted cheese, beans, sour cream, salsa, optional meat and a side of guacamole, is the right amount for three people.  

The Brie Chicken Sandwich served with a side salad is a signature dish: balsamic onions on top of perfectly grilled chicken. If you enjoy a great hamburger, I recommend one of Tamarack’s, served with crisp beer-battered fries. Each dish on the menu comes with a beer recommendation to complement the meal.

I wouldn’t have thought that Mexican food could taste so good at a brewing company, but the chicken enchiladas with melted cheese on top made me very happy. I highly recommend Tamarack Brewing Company for a great glass of house-brewed beer, delicious food, a location right next to the river, and an environment that has quick-paced, pleasant service.
