Author: Madison, Davey

Seth Swingley and Casey Kingsland were inspired to open their brewery, Mighty Mo Brewing Co., due to the lack of an existing craft beer culture in Great Falls prior to 2010.  (That culture has shifted significantly, and Mighty Mo is now one of three breweries in the Electric City).

Author: Madison, Davey

As Kalispell Brewing Company co-owner Maggie Doherty describes it, she and her husband Cole Schneider are “two midwest kids” who chose to pursue their dreams of adventure in Big Sky Country.  They arrived independently nearly a decade ago, met on the slopes of Whitefish Mountain Resort, and today they co-own and run the first craft brewery in downtown Kalispell, Montana to operate since 1955.

John & Snezhi Grahlert

Stonehouse Distillery

Author: Madison, Davey

John and Snezhi Grahlert likely never envisioned themselves as pioneers in the artisan distillery world. As John notes “we’re not even really drinkers” - but they certainly are savvy business people.  As the owners of Montana’s newest craft distillery they’re joining an emerging industry that’s grown by 700% over five years. Like many entrepreneurs, their path to starting the Stonehouse Distillery in the small, rural town of Winston, Montana started with a recognition that they could make an existing product better.  John recalls the moment during the vacation he and Snezhi took in 2010 when it became clear the market needed higher quality, tastier spirits:

“We ordered a couple of supposedly high-end tropical drinks to celebrate our vacation, and were disappointed by the lack of a distinct flavor profile in the liquor - it was all lost to the fruit juices and other mixers.  We knew we could do better.”
