BeerMuda Triangle Debut! Watch the New TV Show about Montana Beer and Adventure


BeerMuda Triangle aired on KPAX July 30 at 4 p.m. and the cast and crew had a great time at a viewing party at The Dram Shop.

This new venture, created by Kelley Bigelow at Brand Edge Marketing and produced by Gravity Media Productions, brings Montana’s diverse and exciting craft beer scene to life while adding a good dose of unique adventures. I am fortunate to co-host with the talented Laurie Rowley.


The premise of this half-hour show is to create a triangle of beer and adventure, visiting three different breweries and doing three different activities along the way.

Episode 1 started in Philipsburg, touring both of the Philipsburg Brewing Company breweries, having lunch at the Sunshine Station, and mining for sapphires at Gem Mountain. Then the cast went up and over Skalkaho Pass, with a stop at the waterfall, before driving up the Bitterroot Valley for some volleyball and beers at Lolo Peak Brewing Co. After that we tried our hands (and feet) at river surfing at Brennan’s Wave in Missoula before catching up with our friend, Kate Bernot, beer editor at DRAFT magazine, at Kettlehouse Brewing Company (Northside).

The next planned episode will highlight Oktoberfest celebrations, as well as Montana’s newest brewery, Smelter City Brewing in Anaconda. So stay tuned!

If you missed the show, no worries, you can view it right here via YouTube.


Future air dates for Episode 1:
  • Helena KXLH 4pm August 6, 2017
  • Butte/Bozeman KTVM 4pm August 20, 2017
BeerMuda Triangle would not be possible without the support of its sponsors: First Montana Bank, Lithia Ford of Missoula, Rangitsch Brothers LLC, Gem Mountain, and Sunshine Station. Website design by Design Missoula.

Black Eagle Brewery Joins the Ranks of Montana Craft Breweries

Soaring into Montana's vibrant beer scene, Black Eagle Brewery (adjacent to Pit Stop Tavern & Raceway Cafe) is serving and kegging beer north of Great Falls, Montana.

"We've been planning this for over a year and a half," says partner and head brewer, Jason Lehman. "We have a new 15-barrel system that was made for us in Nebraska, so we'll be able to distribute kegs right away."

With this volume, Black Eagle Brewery already fills its own taproom and has beers available at the Pit Stop Tavern. The starting lineup includes: Smoke Stack Scottish Ale, Black Eagle IPA, Roe River Pale Ale, Smelter Men Blonde Ale, and Copper Nail Nut Brown Ale.

Lehman is somewhat of a homebrewer-turned-pro, but he had a little help from the other side of Montana.

"Paul Roys from Lolo Peak Brewery was instrumental in helping us get the brewhouse set up," says Lehman.

"Our theme is very industrial," he continues, "which reflects what Black Eagle was built on, and what Great Falls was built on." That is evident with the copper and custom woodwork throughout the brewery and taproom. Lehman knows that nearly everyone in Black Eagle has some ties to the smelter. He even had someone bring in a copper nail from the smelter and asked it be used in the brewery.

With the ability to produce up to 2,000 barrels of beer annually, Black Eagle Brewery might not be too far off from distributing their beers beyond taproom sales and kegs.

"We've been in communication with Spokes Mobile Canning [the Spokane-based mobile canner]," Lehman says, "but we may also get our own canning line before long."

So when you're out Great Falls way, stop in and check out the newest brewery in the area, and the first for Black Eagle.

The brewery plans to have a grand opening celebration on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1, 2015.
