Blackfoot River Brewing Company

Greg Wermers Partner

My interest in beer started well before my taste for the frothy, malty beverage matured.  As a 12-year-old I began collecting beer cans in the roadside ditches of the Black Hills of South Dakota in the late ‘60’s.  Now that beer can collection has a permanent home in the taproom.  As I grew to beer drinking age I tried most of the “commercial beers” available, then moved into imports and finally microbrews became available.  Then “The Joy of Home Brewing” turned my kitchen into a part-time brewery, which eventually led me to Brian and Brad.  Partnering with Brian and Brad in the development, building and nurturing of Blackfoot River Brewing has been a challenging, exciting and fun journey.  Thanks Brian and Brad.

I moved from South Dakota to Helena in 1982 to work as a civil engineer for the State of Montana.  Many different jobs and career changes came along the way and I am truly thankful for them all.  I spend my free time telemark skiing; camping, hiking, and biking the mountains of Montana; along with enjoying the rivers and creeks of our great state.

Favorite beer quote from a monk stuck in Kansas in the early 1900’s: “Because without beer things would not go as well.”
