Blackfoot River Brewing Company

Ben Webster Tap Room Supervisor

Ben grew up in Billings, MT and first became aware of craft beer at a young age through his father, brother-in-law, and older brother. Ben remembers that they would drink Anchor Steam or Fat Tire and he was fascinated that they weren’t drinking the typical domestic beer of the time.
Ben has always been captivated by history and science, and is particularly interested in the relationship between craft beer and society.
In the early Summer if 2015, Ben and his wife moved to Helena, her home town, and he found his sense of purpose as an employee at Blackfoot River Brewing Company.
As someone who is dedicated to hands on work, he completed fly fishing guide school and lived on a farm in the Big Belt mountains for a year.
Ben continues to explore new and old styles of beer while camping, fishing, or cooking extravagant meals with his wife Ellie and dog Marlo.
Favorite beer: Single Malt IPA
Favorite seasonal: Baltic Porter
