Bozeman Craft Beer Week is a grassroots collaboration organized by two avid Bozeman homebrewers. The goal:  spotlight our vibrant craft beer community and all its facets. This 8-day, multi-venue beer bash will include a variety of exciting craft beer-centric events. Events will happen throughout the community at local breweries, restaurants, and more. We hope you'll join us in celebrating the best our area's craft beer scene has to offer.

    Meet the Founders

    We're just two lady homebrewers with a flair for events planning and community building who decided to take our passion for craft beer a little farther than most.

    The result:  the idea for an epic community-wide craft beer celebration and the start of our fermentation-focused events promotions company, Fermentana LLC.

    "Beer isn't just beer.

    Beer brings us closer together.

    It helps us celebrate success and nurse us through failure.

    Just as important, the establishments where beer is born, serve as focal points of the communities they serve.

    Put simply, beer is one of humanity's most powerful and ancient community building tools.

    Who wouldn't want to celebrate that?"
