Six years ago, three local breweries and the Downtown Great Falls Association put their heads together to create an event to showcase the community and enjoy some great craft beer.

Since then, the Brewfest has grown to be one of the largest in the entire state of Montana and has become an entire week of events!

Let me tell you, if you've never made it into downtown Great Falls for craft beer week, make it a point to do so because you'll be missing out!

Craft Beer Week will run from June 17 to June 22 in downtown Great Falls this year.
