Bold Beer. Big Sky Beautiful Places.
Bozeman Craft Beer Week is a grassroots collaboration organized by Fermentana. Now in it's second year, this 8-day, multi-venue beer bash celebrates the diverse and thriving craft beer culture in southwest Montana's scenic Gallatin Valley. In 2017, this multi-day celebration featured over 20 beer-centric events organized and hosted by 32 different breweries, restaurants, bars, retail stores, and more across the community. In total, nearly 3000 participants attended events. In turn, this craft beer celebration strengthened the local love for our favorite fermented beverage.
In 2018, Fermentana has partnered with Gallatin Valley Land Trust (GVLT), to showcase the bold beers, big sky, and beautiful places which make the Gallatin Valley such a great place to call home. Montana craft beer drinkers are also avid outdoors enthusiasts! According to a recent Outdoor Industry Association report, outdoor recreation in Montana currently brings in nearly $7.1 billion in consumer spending each year. These beer-loving hikers, bikers, fly fisherman, hunters, and more consider beer an integral part of the adventure and we want to celebrate that!
Our “Bold Beer. Big Sky. Beautiful Places.” theme pays tribute to the best our local community and craft beer scene have to offer by providing beer enthusiasts with unique experiences while also giving back to efforts to conserve the trails and wide open spaces that Montanans hold dear. A portion of the proceeds from Bozeman Craft Beer Week 2018 will benefit GVLT to help fund trail, conservation, and land preservation projects throughout the valley.
