Bought dinner from next door pizza place and ate out on cranky Sam's patio. The hidden girl IPA was delicious. Our server has as great even though they were understaffed.

Cool place, solid beers and a nice ambiance. C-Love is my favorite. They often have a food truck parked out back, so you can get some grub there or get take-out from Biga Pizza or Notorious PIG which are both close by.

Very nice inside, lots of seating and a nice outside area. The drink menu is HUGE, my boyfriend and I tried a couple of the Zesty seltzers and their canned beers. The Tropic Slam is amazing. Had a great time just drinking and relaxing.

Fun taproom, I enjoyed a couple beers, they have mostly their own beers on tap. They have a nice patio out back and easy to grab a slice or two from bigga pizza. There was a DJ out back for awhile. Interesting place.

After a long day a lot the local swim meet it was time for a nice cold beer. Decided to give Cranky Sam Public House a try. Ordered the Tropical Blonde summer ale has a little hoppy finish, but for someone that doesn't care for hoppy, this was just fine.Next up was the Hot Spring Hefeweizen.to me,.slight note of cloves. Different, but pleasant.Lastly, the El Vaquero, their Mexican beer. I can say I have not had many craft Mexican beers, since not too many breweries can masters that craft,, but this ranks toward the top three. Super smooth with or without lime. Almost wish is it was about 5 degrees colder and , to me, would be absolutely perfect. Best beer of the three tried this evening.If I am back in Missoula, I will definitely be back and as I have said in other posts, Support Local!

Good place to grab a bite we had the nachoes and they were very good. I had a bottled bear as they didnt have anythin dark and heavy on tap. I usually like a 9 plus ABV. Service was good.

Good selection of beers and tasty. You can bring your own food. There is a pizza place next door which seems to be everyone's favorite coming here. They have back and front patio too. The service was fast on our first visit and not to fast on our second. I think the difference was the time pf the day. Around 8pm the crowds seem to die down.

Very fun atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious beer. I tried the Pilsner, which was good and the Cozy Sipper white stout, which one of the best beers I had in Missoula!

Really enjoyed every beer I tasted. They nail the hard to hit Belgians. Service was great too. Easy vibe. Highly recommend.

Atmosphere is really nice. They allow food inside because they do not sell any. SO MANY CHOICES how can you pick just one? Good prices and good beer.

This place is awesome Not just because they have a nice establishment, a beautiful patio, and great beer but because of the people who are behind it. They have an awesome staff. I came to one of their events and I was alone and they asked me if I somebody else was joining me….unfortunately my Army vet husband who has PTSD did not feel like leaving the house and being around people today. They insisted I take a plate of food home for him. Small acts of kindness like this touch my heart and reassure my faith in humanity… because there are still very good people out there. I will definitely be supporting this place as much as I can and spreading the word about how wonderful they are.

Great place to stop in with group of friends for a drink and some food from the food truck outside. Plenty of staff, they checked on us regularly if we needed any refills. I don't drink much, but got a delicious cherry blossom and lime seltzer (a little over 4% alcohol). Very refreshing, not overly sweet and slightly tart. This is a must stop spot in downtown.

If you want to experience a historic place in Missoula this is your spot! This place used to be an auto repair shop and now it's a cute little brewery with lots of hidden history. They have plenty of craft beers on tap for you to try and lots of TVs if you're looking to catch a game. They don't serve food, but you can order food next door at Biga pizza and they will bring it over to you:) Definitely check this place out if you're in downtown Missoula!
