When your office can be anywhere, or you’re taking a work trip and need to make final tweaks to that presentation, there’s no sense in trapping yourself inside alone when you could be chilling out with a cool craft brew in hand. It still counts as work if you’re having fun while you do it, so set up shop in one of Bozeman’s much-loved breweries for an afternoon. The breweries listed here give you the best working vibe when you need a hoppy office space.
It’s not uncommon to see laptops among the lunch crowd at Bridger Brewing. Look out for a great pizza selection and gluten-reduced beers to wet your whistle while you work. Located so close to the university campus, Bridger will likely bring out the student studying crowd along with professors and young professionals looking to get a little laptop time. You’ll just want to be sure to head out before the dinner rush hits.
Work away the afternoon on the patio at MAP Brewing, where a mountain backdrop can give you a visual break when you need to work through a solution. The beer and food selection should get you as excited as anyone could be for spreadsheets and presentations, while the open and airy decor will make you feel like you’re on a break, even when you’re powering through to get stuff done.
Pick between a free-ranging patio under open air or the wild west atmosphere indoors at Bunkhouse. A bit newer to the brewery scene, this space brings you tasty beers to try out, with plenty of food options nearby when you need to get up and stretch (your legs, or your stomach). And when you can get $1 off all pours from 2-5 on Wednesday, hump day never looked so good.
The neighborhood pub vibe at Bozeman Brewing Company gives you a cozy atmosphere to send work emails while you sip away on an award-winning brew. Pop some popcorn in your mouth and squirrel yourself away from distractions amidst the hustle and bustle of the local-loved brewery. It wasn’t voted Best Beer in Bozeman for nothing.
Local ingredients in the food menu pair great with the handcrafted brews at 406 Brewing, and the open space with an outdoor seating option will help your work flow as freely as the taps do. Build your own pizza as you build your presentation, and enjoy working from the hidden back patio, tucked away from it all.
If beer isn’t your jam, that doesn’t mean you’ll be left out in the cold in Bozeman. Check out Lockhorn Cider House for crisp, refreshing hard cider that will make every work email seem a little rosier through the bite of hopped cider or fruit blends that go down easy. Cheese boards and other gourmet nibbles (truffles, anyone?) can hold you over without having to interrupt your work for a full meal.
Honey, we have so much more gossip for you!
