IF YOU BREW IT, THEY WILL COME
Jim Devine and Sandon Stinnett were longtime eastern Montana home brewers who kept getting high praise for their handcrafted beers. “You guys should open a brewery!” was a constant refrain, and eventually they looked at
each other and wondered, “Is this possible?”
They decided it was possible, and from there it became inevitable. With
the help of co-owner Russ Houck, Jim and Sandon bought and refurbished an
old, long-unused building in downtown Wibaux (Pop. 461). Once they had the
building cleaned up and structurally sound, they set to work on decorating
and moving in their brewing equipment.
Named for the small creek running through Wibaux, Beaver Creek Brewery
opened its doors in summer 2008 with six beers on tap, plus root beer.
Since then, BCB has grown in popularity, becoming a regional destination
for connoisseurs of beer, music and good times.
The next time you’re in our neck of the plains, stop by and say hi. We
always say, “Our Beaver Tastes Better!” and we love it when people come in
and find out for themselves!
