Is there a cooler venue for a beer fest than the World Museum of Mining in Butte? Reservations have been made and tickets are purchased. We don't need another reason to love Butte, but the Big Butte Brewfest is top of the list.

Montana and regional beers will be featured there will ALSO be ciders and distilled spirits making for more variety for everyone. Food vendors will be on site along with live music all day. Plus, there's going to be a free trolley running back and forth from the venue to Slainte Butte America Pub.

This event is a fundraiser for the World Museum of Mining and the Butte Chamber of Commerce. So, we will also be hosting raffles throughout the day with great prizes from all of our vendors.

By the way, the location of the World Museum of Mining is incredibly interesting. It sits ON about 22 acres of an old mine site...the famously named "Orphan Girl" mine. For an additional fee, the museum will be doing special underground tours on Brewfest day.
