Brewer's Whims & Seasonals

Barrel Aged Cherry Saison

Our Summer Saison was so good in 2013 we had to keep the beer going by adding some local Bitterroot cherries to some of it and barrel aging it in oak barrels. Delicious!


Red Dread Imperial Red:

(8.13%ABV) - The Red Dread, Imperial Red Ale is brewed with 10 different malts, 4 different hops, and dry-hopped to give our beer a profound hop profile. The hops are perfectly balanced by the big malty body of this big beer.
The malt and hop aromas that you initially perceive, are balanced and complimentary. Caramely, toffee, hints of chocolate, dates,  are followed by the fruity, citrusy hop flavors, that make this beer very enjoyable now, and will allow this brew to age and develop into smooth, very malty beer within a year with proper storage.

Russian Imperial Stout:

(9% ABV) - Bitter Root’s Russian Imperial stout was brewed as a classic Russian Imperial with a twist. We added 50 pounds of local red potatoes to this brew to add some local flavor. The Russian Imperial Stout is a dark, rich, full bodied beer that will warm you from the inside out. Prost!

Honey Citra IPA:

(6.28% ABV) – We are really excited about this IPA! We love the distinct flavor of the Citra hop that adds very nice hoppy, citrusy flavors to this big hopped beer. Its unique honey malt body and flavor balance out the hops nicely making it an incredibly drinkable beer!

Always On Tap:

sawtooth ale

Sawtooth Ale

Lewis and Clark's 1805-1806 expedition took them past the many creeks that flow into the Bitterroot River each spring, among them Sawtooth Creek.  Bitter Root Brewing's blonde ale is made from the finest pale malt and hops available.  The addition of malted rye and wheat give this beer a crisp, dry flavor.   It's a national medal winner, and a year round favorite.

Nut Brown Ale

Developed in London, England, Brown Ale has been brewed for hundreds of years.  English and American brewing techniques, combined with generous amounts of Amber, Brown and Honey Malts, give Bitter Root Brewing’s Nut Brown ale its nutty, sweet character.

Pale Ale

Session Pale Ale

This easy drinking pale ale is lower in alcohol content with a well balanced hop and malt flavor. Excellent for those who like a little bit of hop with their beer. 



Known as "Three Threads" or "Entire". Porter became England's first national beer in 1722.  It was called porter because of its popularity with that group of laborers.  Bitter Root Brewing brews this rich dark ale with a hint of peat-smoked malt as a salute to English brewers long forgotten.

Bitterroot IPA

India Pale Ale (IPA)

First brewed in England around 1800, for export to the British population of India, IPA was generously hopped as a preservative for the long sea voyage from Britain.  Combining both English and Northwest brewing techniques, Bitter Root Brewing's IPA is light in color, high in hops, with a balanced malt flavor.

Amber Ale

CTZ Single Hop

This big Northwest style Pale Ale is brewed exclusively using CTZ hops. This medium bodied brew has citrus and grapefruit flavors with a long yet dry hop finish.
