Welcome to highlander

The first Missoula Brewing Company was founded in 1890 by Joseph Wagner, located at 109 West Front Street in Missoula. After receiving permission to use the name from the New York Highlanders (soon thereafter to become the Yankees), the first Highlander Beer was brewed in 1910. With its facility by then sitting proudly at the base of Waterworks Hill near Rattlesnake Creek, Highlander was a mainstay beer of Montana families for decades. Surviving the closure of prohibition, Highlander flourished in Montana and neighboring states up until the brewery closed its doors in 1964. Highlander has a rich tradition of colorful labels and creative marketing materials, many of which are now on display in our TapHouse.

Highlander Beer re-opened its doors in summer 2015 and has flourished in the Missoula community. The large TapHouse rests next to the stainless steel mechanics of our brewery. The TapHouse boasts indoor seating year round and a large patio that is open in the summers. With a large kid area, Highlander is a great location for families to bring their kids. A rotational selection of artisanal pizzas and other dinner options are offered daily.
